Watra Rituals connect a group of people to a community wave that honors and celebrates the intention of the ritual.
The rituals are held in Watra pools – enclosed pools with body-temperature water. They usually start with aquatic yoga, stretching and relaxation. Then the participants float in the water in pairs, embracing and breathing together. Each pair creates a wave in the water that is a reflection of their common breath.
Then each pair expand their awarenes to the waves in the water around them, and align their breathing rhythm with the other waves. Eventually, all waves merge into one. One common wave in the water, as all breaths are in harmony.
The ritual concludes with soft vocal breathing – chanting – of loving gratitude.
