This year is starting off with some exciting changes at Mountain Waves Healing Arts. The sale of the yoga studio portion of our center is prompting us to make changes in the hallway traffic pattern. This means that we need to use the space occupied by the AquaZaé pool to accommodate that change. This past weekend, we dismantled the pool making room for a new opportunity to take shape within Mountain Waves Healing Arts.
The dismantling process began on the afternoon of Friday January 28th with the draining of the water, but not before I took a ceremonial float and meditation in the pool. I enjoyed the opportunity to reflect on my training in aquatic bodywork at Harbin Hot Springs with Harold Dull, the creator of WATSU®. I also reflected on the many aquatic therapies I performed in the pool and the many faces of amazement upon which I gazed at the conclusion of each session. While my floating meditation was bittersweet, I knew it was time to let go and help ensure the future sustainability of Mountain Waves as a whole.
The initial assembly of the pool, over three years ago, was fraught with complications and delays. The dis-assembly only presented some minor hesitations in draining the water without interruption, almost as if the pool was reluctant to let go as well. However, once I established a steady flow of water through the siphon hose, the pool finished draining over night.
On Saturday morning I, along with two helpers, got to work and completed the removal in only about 4 hours plus a couple of hours to clean up after ourselves. At this point the room remains empty, yet in no time we will open up the passageway from the front hallway to serve as the new access to the massage and bodywork treatment rooms. How we will use the rest of the open space is undecided, so we want to know your thoughts. What services would you like to have available at Mountain Waves that we currently don’t provide? Please let us know with a post at the bottom of this blog.
Sure this transition is sad in some ways, but the new opportunity it presents is exciting! That’s what I’m looking forward to. I hope you’ll join me.
