The practice uniquely interweaves elements of watsu, dance, meditation and somatic work and it is cultivated on a rich philosophical terrain deeply inspired by studies on water. It is based on the premise that humans evolved from oceanic origins through millennia of adaptability power and by adopting a myriad of forms till our present form. Human bodies are composed of approximately 70% water, a fact widely known, yet little appreciated in its full scope as an embodied experience of our most basic physiological condition. Organs, bones, muscles and all other anatomical structures are not only abundantly composed of water, but are bathed internally and externally by various fluids as blood, lymph, hormones, urine, saliva, etc. The homeostatic and metabolic processes depend entirely on the healthy functioning of this fluid system and are considered as the pillar of all other bodily systems. The fluid system is nothing less than the oceanic memory and residue, rhythmically pulsating, still present in our physiological composition.
The notion that we metaphorically carry a constant "inner sea" is the portal to perceive and relate to our body from a radically different perspective. The key pivotal element is the relation with the gravitational force: fear of falling and of letting go, is universal ever present. Working inside the warm waters becomes an optimal way to gently release lifelong emotional and psychological blockages stored in the body and manifested through anxiety stress, postural dysfunctionalities, loss of mobility and lack of bodily awareness. Liquid Body is a moving and embodied philosophy that paves the way to re-awake fundamental qualities of our being, such as adaptability, soft power and fluidity, mostly forgotten and suffocated by life dysfunctional patterns and hidden fears.
