Rita Maldonado

Aguahara – Flydeeper

She grew up by the sea and always felt surrounded by its strength. She studied Biology and developed a perpetual curiosity about the human body and the elements that make up life. She became a researcher, looking for the mysteries of anatomy and physiology. She discovered that “there are many ways to cure physical illnesses”, and “that the cure goes beyond drugs.” Her encounter with water therapies was a kind of fusion of childhood roots with a thirst for knowledge about well-being and what makes us better.

“I went back to basics. I returned to my great passion”, she says. She has traveled the world, from Nepal to Ecuador, always in a learning process. Her talent is also directed towards doula work, providing support during pregnancy, childbirth and postpartum. One aspect of this follow-up is to combine the doula experience with aquatic therapies. About LiquidZome she says it is “the temple of water. A place to flow, to dive into the true essence, to transform ourselves into the best version of ourselves.”

Marina Sans

Liquid Cosmos

Each Marina session is unique, thought out and conducted according to her reading of the person receiving that experience. Her incredible “sense-ability” and unique philosophy developed overtime, make her a subtle and precise reader of the body’s needs. Her work is as delicate as it is profound. After going through the learning and practice of Watsu, Aguahara and Butoh Dance, among other techniques of aquatic therapies, Marina created Liquid Cosmos (Somatic Education for Aquatic Bodywork). She is a deep connoisseur of the human body and her research on anatomy is in continuous evolution. She is fascinated by the discovery of the other and dedicated to water and to the awareness of touch.
She grew up on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea, her name is Marina and she is a Pisces. Someone likely born to be aquatic… Before devoting herself 100% to Somatics in water, her work involved directing documentaries in the fields of anthropology and sociology. She spent long periods with tribes in the Amazon and Africa, where she enriched her connection to nature and to ancestral wisdom. Nowadays, she dedicates most of her time giving sessions at LiquidZome and training new therapists around the world, as it is also through this sharing of knowledge that she discovers more about human beings and herself.
