Michael Hallock

Watsu Water Healing


Known affectionately as “Michael Watsu”, Michael is a Watsu therapist & a teacher of the Healing Dance form of aquatic bodywork who has offered Watsu Healing sessions at the Balispirit Festival since its inception in 2008.

A pioneer of aquatic bodywork in Asia Pacific, Michael Hallock resides here in Bali, teaching regularly at The Yoga Barn, in Ubud, Bali and offers facilitator trainings and retreats internationally.

In 1995 Michael first experienced aquatic bodywork and discovered a quality of presence and peace he had never known. It was “love-at-first-float” and one of the early experiences that propelled him into a journey of self-discovery. He found what was to become a life-long passion for healing arts, yoga and meditation that has since taken around the world to develop himself and share with others. Now, after 25 years of study, practice and teaching of healing arts, he leads retreats and trainings to answer the question:

“How can we cultivate peace and joy in ourselves, and how can we share that with the world?”

Michael approaches Watsu Therapy as an art form, and each session is an intuitive dance unfolding a deeper connection with oneself.
