OBA is a new, deeply relaxing form of aquatic therapy, which takes place in a warm water pool. It is a journey back to your origins, into the endless blue depth of your inner ocean. It was developed by Kaya & Nirvano, two German sannyasin, that transferred in the water an Osho land technique called Rebalancing.
You might dive into the wonderous world of memories, of floating weightlessly in the protective womb of your mother. While receiving OBA you dive right back into that very space where you were surrounded by soft warm water. OBA invites you to experience again the nurturing qualities of being held and loved, and to rediscover trust, peace within yourself, and a sense of coming home.
OBA combines elements of soft stretching movements, aquatic deep tissue massage, and joint release, as well as energy and breathwork in a unique way above and below the water surface . Especially designed movements allow your whole spine to swing and energy to flow again. The radius of your joint movements becomes wider and your whole body can be moved in a new way because of its weightlessness in the water. This form of aquatic therapy invites you to get to know the healing energies of the water in a new way. Chronic physical pain as well as emotional tensions can be released. Special positions can remind you of how it felt to be held as a child or how it felt in your mother`s womb.
A session in OBA starts with a relaxation phase on the water surface. Your OBA Bodyworker will carry, stretch, massage, rock, sway and swing you in a soft and effortless way.
When you are deeply relaxed and open to it, the underwater phase begins. You'll receive a soft noseclip that keeps water from entering your nose while you are gently submerged . Then a gentle dance of your body starts underwater. Harmonious playful movements develop between the "giving" and the "receiving" person. Your breathing rhythm and the one of your OBA Bodyworker will melt together into one and become a natural flow of energy, an intuitive dialogue. At the end of the session you will be held in a caring way. Here you will have time to integrate feelings which might have come up during the session.
As an active OBA Bodyworker, regardless of weather you are female or male, you will experience your own feminine, protective and motherly side. As the passive receiving person early childhood memories can arise from just being in that protective space, by being held and floated. You can experience deep feelings of oneness and of being connected with the whole universe.
OBA nourishes the soul and allows you to be able to trust again on a very deep level.
OBA is one of the most sensitive and gentle methods of aquatic therapy that can guide you through states of absolute peace, deep relaxation and feelings.
It helps you to explore experiences of joy and bliss, lightness of being, celebration and ecstasy. You will open up to an immense inner space where you can just be yourself, and your senses and your body start to relax and open up - your natural energies will flow again, in and with the water.... You feel softer and more sensitive, and your inner beauty begins to shine.
In addition to the bodywork in water, OBA is enriched by the energetic connection with the "spirit" of the dolphins and the whales. The wisdom and inspiration of your dolphin and whale friends will give you the chance to re-discover your own "inner child" and your own sensitivity. In a very playful way your dolphin friends want to remind you of your original natural bodyflow......
