WABR – The Worldwide Aquatic Bodywork Registry is an international registry of most of all aquatic bodyworks students.
When Harold, and others who joined to help develop Watsu and Tantsu, were invited end of the eighties to teach around the world, Harold began a Registry to list classes and practitioners on the internet, and to store authorizations to practice and teach. Today more than 20,000 from 90 countries have transcripts on the Registry. Find practitioners, classes and instructors on the Registry to ensure they are fully trained and that their classes can be added to your transcript and applied to becoming authorized to practice or teach Watsu, or one of the other forms of Aquatic Bodywork whose authorizations are also listed on the Worldwide Registry (see www.watsu.com).
The registry belongs to the Dull’s family, but is also trough it that we collect the WABA fees from our members.
Members fees and Royalities are collected togheter and once or twice per year, the WABA member fees are reversed to the WABA account in Switzerland.
