Tantsu For Couples

Tantsu is a relatively new form of deeply nurturing partner bodywork that is more like partner yoga than a traditional massage. It can be done by professionals as therapy, practiced by friends or in a yoga-class style, or by couples that want to become more mindful of themselves and each other. It is also a great way for couples to develop deeper intimacy with each other.

 

In our Tantsu For Couples Workshop we will show you how to be completely with your partner, how to meet there physical and emotional needs without actually "doing" anything specific. Tantsu is "being with" rather than "doing to". It is "responding" rather than "initiating". It is waiting, for as long as it takes for your partners body to tell you what it needs.... 

 

Tantsu provides a safe contained, intimate, yet non-sexual environment in which to explore you and your partner's mutual acceptance of each other's life forces. It is a quiet expression of your loudest desires and that is just the beginning...

 

If you would like to learn more about what Tantsu is and how couples can use it to draw closer to each other, go to The Somatic Awareness Institute website. If you are interested in Tantsu as a practitioner, we are working on getting Ateeka to come to Seattle and do some trainings soon.
