O-KI Shiatsu School
1st Year: Relaxation and Well-Being
This full year Shiatsu Course can be followed as a course for beginners, to learn a new hobby and as a start of your own Shiatsu Professional Career. Ths course is organised by O-KI Shiatsu School. After completing this year and the requirements for the exam, you receive the O-KI Certificate Shiatsu Relaxation Practitioner.
Our vision for the 1st year: to re-explore and discover again your answer to the question 'what is Health'. How does a healthy body feels like? Because, we all have the strange habit of no-awareness, to notice the body only when something goes wrong, when there is pain. This year, we learn to feel, notice and sense our body even wehn all goes well, to regain again this absolute happiness to sense your body, to be connected with the body.
What will we do? We learn to relax, to allow ourself to relax. We sense what Health really means. We learn to be attentive to our ressources, and how to use them for your wellbeing. To experience the harmony of your entire energetic Being, to feel the connection of your physical body with your emotions, thoughts, and your spiritual existence. In short: to be present in the here and now of you physical manifestation.
This way our reference in our Life will be again : Health, Harmony, Force and Peace. Every class we invite you to realise this beautiful way of living.
