“My origin is in the waters, in the ocean”
Rig Veda 10.125
Dwelling in the fluid means to dwell in a state of creation, of becomingness, of possibility.
Yoga Somatics with Ateeka invites the fluid, changeable, responsive nature of water and flow into the practice. Some of our practices are in natural water sources or warm water pools and springs. We work individually and in partners to become intimate with the "soul of the waters". As we immerse ourselves into the way of the waters, we also invoke its regenerative movements in our own bodies.
My own personal yoga practice transformed deeply when I was baptized into the awareness of the life-giving fluid that flows through my body. More deeply realized this fluid presence when I began working IN THE WATERS directly by receiving Watsu and subsequently studying this and other acquatic bodywork practices.
