AQUATERNATIVES® Foundation Class is key to the awareness and safety the program builds on. It is also recognized by Worldwide Aquatic Bodywork Association as a foundation class for Watsu® and Healing Dance® certifications.

Theri is known for mentoring the facilitation of each individual's growth which will be needed to support the goals they have set with themselves. In this way, every student has the opportunity for success. The focus of the class is to give a balanced, full-spectrum presentation of the work while addressing different learning styles and needs. The emphasis is to address the multiple kinds of awareness needed to provide both a deeper connection, as well as be able to consistently give more productive sessions.

By building a strong foundation of fundamentals and principles to draw from and reinforcing those concepts and principles each class, the student are able to easily integrate additional classes and safely and effectively explore self-discovery of the work outside of class and into their own personal practice.
