Still Water, Deep Water

With Inika Spence-Whaley and Bodhitara Searles

February 28 - March 1, 2020

Some basic experience in aquatic bodywork is advised, but “pre-requisites” are not written in stone. Please be in touch with either Inika or Bodhitara to ascertain if you have what you need to fully absorb this work, and/or what you can do to get there by February.

Tuition is $325 with lunch included.
