AGUAHARA combines elements of massage, joint mobilization, muscle stretching and dance. Moments of stillness alternate with rhythmical flowing movements, freeing the body in ways impossible on land.
AGUAHARA lowers stress levels, transforms pain, improves sleep and releases the spine, limbs, joints and organs. It gives flexibility, mobility, deep and total breathing, release, lightness and fluidity.
AGUAHARA induces relaxation, allowing accumulated tensions to leave, promoting a better circulation of energy & blood. It opens a new connection, with oneself, with the world, with beauty, tranquillity and peace.
A beautiful journey of connection, the session is focused on the parent, whilst the child is given the opportunity to be bare witness and support with loving touch, massage and cradling. A unique opportunity to give back and connect in new ways.
A unique opportunity to spend time with your loved one . The experience is tailored to your wishes, includes a time of floating together, intertwined you a massaged and nurtured as a couple . Then one of you embarks on a journey with me whilst the other can choose to float, witness or becoming engaged in the session through loving touch and support. We then switch roles and at some point depending on the level of comfort in water, there may be a time where both of your are being moved as one
“On a cool winter evening, we arrived for an intimate couple therapy in the seventh month of pregnancy.
At the end of the path a warm pool awaited in a magical atmosphere and one strong and impressive woman, a combination of tenderness and confidence with a gentle voice. We indulged in homemade healthy snacks and dived into an experience that allowed us to connect with ourselves, each other and the baby we were so longing to get to know.
So many exciting moments, an experience of womb and a journey filled with deep listening from Ilana to our needs.
We have never been in such a magical world of peace and power together.
We wish everyone such an experience at least once "
Its highly recommend Sheli and Ellen 💕
Imagine the warmth and sense of weightlessness induced by water... your eyes closed, there is a play of light across your eyelids, your ears under water, sounds are muffled. The world starts to disappear, leaving just yourself, your breath, the sensation of the water and rhythmical flowing of your body. nothing to do, nowhere to go ….just to receive and be.
You arrive to a beautiful private heated pool . We enter the water together and talk a little, I ask you about your well being, relationship with water and intentions for the session. Then we go over how the journey will flow, and get you set up with floats and nose clip (if desired).
Floating in warm water, I’ll gently move your body, in rhythmic movements, opening and closing, massaging and releasing any tension. At some point, if we have agreed on this earlier, I’ll offer you a nose clip to explore the realm of movement under water. If you prefer to keep your face above the surface we will simply continue.
The movements may be very slow like being an embryo in the womb or a piece of floating seaweed, or fast like a dolphin or mermaid, creating a sensation of flight. It’s a co-creation of the moment, you me and the water.
The last part of the journey is for integration, and here I remove your nose clip and invite you into stillness and reflection, I hold you until you feel ready to return.
I am a free spirited woman, a mother, dancer, lover of the water, people and the wilderness. For 22 years, I travelled across 5 continents dedicated to fostering peace and environmental protection whilst deepening my knowledge of Earth based spirituality and traditional healing. I’ve worked with individuals & groups from across divides using nature, movement, council and ceremony. In 2014, I stepped back to give birth to my daughter. When she turned four I felt the call to serve again, yet did not know how, until one powerful moment.
Standing on the shores of the Pacific Ocean in Mexico, I was mesmerised by two people moving in the water. In that instant, I knew in the depth of my being, that whatever it is they are doing, it’s what I am destined to do. A culmination of everything I have done so far. It was Aguahara, and it felt like home! I have been training in Mexico with the founder Alex Siebenstern and Sandra Morell, giving and receiving sessions in lakes, rivers, the sea, hot springs, pools, spas and even hot tubs. No matter the size, if it’s warm enough – we can do it!
