Susana Mendes

With background on dance and circus techniques, Susana has deepened her research related to kinesthetic and creative expression through movement and inner listening, from which she highlights the contact-dance and the water therapies. As a birth-doula, it was during pregnancy that she found the benefits of the aquatic therapies in pregnant women, in the bonding mother-baby and with the partner. She has been practicing aquatic therapies since 2018, where she found the opportunity to use tools from bodywork merging with the aquatic techniques received from her mentors Ofer Rosenthal (Flydeeper) and Marina Sans (Liquid Cosmos). Based on this range of experiences, she offers an aquatic inner journey through a dialogue in movement, caressed by the water.
