Jahara® is rooted in the understanding of two fundamental elements: the body structure and the physical properties of water. In Basics, students are introduced to the concepts and principles of Jahara®, and also to its fundamental footwork patterns and movements.
From day one, this course focus in how to work without effort, relying on practical knowledge, not on physical strength. The techniques presented are designed to help the aquatic therapist to work safely, comfortably and creatively with anyone.
Relaxation without support leads to contraction of the body structure. Relaxation with support brings expansion. Providing the clients body with support is a fine skill in aquatic bodywork. This class places emphasis on developing such skill. Other exercises will help you to blend the flotation device so smoothly in a treatment that it becomes invisible to the receiver.
In a stress-free atmosphere, and based on clear technical fundaments, in Jahara® Basics you will have the opportunity to develop your unique qualities as an aquatic therapist, integrating freedom with support, and technique with heart.
