Start of the Basic course Shiatsu and Do-In
The new Basic course Shiatsu and Do-IN consisting of 8 lessons on Wednesday night (no class on 1 April) will start 5 February 2020.
The birthplace of shiatsu originally lies with the "normal man". To this day, it is common in rural Japan and China that people treat each other with shiatsu. In Japan, people go to shiatsu therapists before going to the doctor. The N.S.K.S. wants to make shiatsu accessible and bring it to the attention of a wide audience. This way, everyone can benefit from the art of healing themselves and others and staying healthy.
The basic and family course consists of 8 classes of 2 hours. The first hour is spent on Do-In, featuring “Ki” development and meridian stretches. The second hour is spent on demonstration and practice of the basic techniques of Classical Shiatsu, with another student. This course is given 4 times a year. Each of the 4 courses deals with the teachings in a specific position in the following order during a year:
1. Front lying position
2. Back lying position
3. Sitting position
4. Side lying position
Every person older then 12, bodily fit or not, can participate in the basic and family course. Participants will need to bring easy fitting clothes, preferable without big buttons or other protrusions that can get in the way. Cotton clothing is advised but not mandatory.
