Engaging your body in water and on land

Roni Leef / Water Clinic / Israel
Ursula Margharita / Yoga Biodynamics / Switzerland/Spain

In this Immersion we are joining lightness, fluidity and strength to refine our body perception and sensing wholness within and throughout our bodies, in motion and in stillness.

The question of how to inhabit a sense of wholeness in our body and how to embrace the natural forces acting within and throughout us, does not come with a simple straight forward answer.



How does gravity support our upwards moving forces in standing, walking, balancing, moving and floating? We focus on movement from the ground upwards and we investigate the moving forces, acting through our body from inside out and from outside in. (Intrinsic and extrinsic awareness).

Exploring our interrelatedness within and around the pelvic girdle, our centre of gravity where upwards and downwards moving forces meet in the body. Looking at the various joint-connections, especially the division between the 4th and 5th lumber vertebra, the hip joints, the sacrum and the heart connection.

We take a look at how to create lightness and support for the upper part of our body to breath and move freely. We will explore motion range, connection and space around the breathing process, the shoulders and the neck.

SOMA AWARENESS, INNER & OUTER BODY ZONES: Exploring the cranial-sacral rhythm and focused and unfocused attention in clinical practice and in daily live. How to create a gentle and safe environment for ourselves and others, where recognition and healing can be appreciated and experienced.

FOR WHOM IT IS: These 4 days of interdisciplinary movement exploration in water and on land is designed for therapists, healers, yoga practitioners, movement investigators, dancers and all people who are interested in a sustainable and healthy movement practice which helps to build a deeper connection within the body and with oneself.

All 4 workshops are experiential, explorative and informational, playing with the focus and themes mentioned above.

Each day will be different, depending on the group of the day. You can take each day as an individual module. Though we recommend to join us for at least 2 days as it will give you a chance for a deeper understanding of this particular work and it will build trust in working together with others.

Later on I had a major injury in my knee as a dancer and the water were the best environment for me to be in. I have 11 years of practicing as a hydrotherapist in Israel and around the world passing knowledge with different workshop in India, Brazil, Portugal, Israel and always looking for the next destination to pass on my work.”

Roni and Ursula met in India where they discovered their common love and passion for movement and natural flow. They started to exchange their therapeutic practices in water and on land. It became quickly evident that their individual professional skills have a lot in common, in the depth of their sources. And so the project “Engaging your body in water and on land” was born.
We invite you to come and join us for this great opportunity of exploring movement in water and on land in our joint venture at the beautiful water clinic of Roni Leef, just 20 min away from Tel Aviv. Come and be part of a wonderful journey of body motion, exploration and new discoveries.
