Aqua NAIO™ Session

Moving with the waters of life

Aqua NAIO™ is a form of aquatic holistic awareness and somatic education. Sessions use the nurturing properties of water to reduce the effects of gravity on the body through buoyancy and weightlessness. The water and practitioner create immersive environment that supports relaxation and connection to an internal sense of fluidity. The Aqua NAIO practitioner uses gentle-touch and attuned presence for support during the session. People often feel an over all sense of harmony and well-being from the encounter.
