1 Day Workshop for shiatsu practitioners and teachers
When: Sunday Feb 18, 2018, 10-5
Where: Strala Yoga Studio in New York City, at 632 Broadway, between Houston and Bleecker Street, 6th Floor
Shiatsu is a beautiful idea that, in practice, challenges us to make specific decisions. We need to be able to apply our theoretical knowledge to specific situations. What is your diagnosis and how do you reach it? What is the appropriate treatment? How do we begin our treatments and why? How are our clients responding?
Our clients come to us with specific problems and ailments: "It hurts right there - please help me." We need to be able to respond to these situations directly and effectively. In this seminar we will refine our ability to deal with structural and movement-related imbalances, Effective treatment strategy requires us to be flexible in our thinking, to listen, to improvise, and to act. As a professional practitioner, you are helping clients with specific issues, 'solving' problems. Sometimes it works (and you think 'I know what I'm doing!') and sometimes you guess and hope and know that you could have done a better job. Are you ready to go to the next level and become more consistently effective with your treatments?
Enhance your ability to problem solve with both knowledge and common sense. Come prepared to have fun and experiment with new ideas.
We have a beautiful space with a padded surface. Wear comfortable clothing of any kind (no gi necessary!)
During this workshop you will learn how to:
Understand movement and posture as diagnostic information
Enhance visual diagnostic skills
Use stretching and rotations to diagnose as well as treat
Understand relationships between structural and energetic imbalances
Address specific structural injuries
Be more confident and effective in your practice
This workshop will be oriented towards the practical (not simply theoretical), which means doing: trying ideas and techniques out, giving and receiving feedback in pairs and groups.
