​​​​​Weekend Practitioner Program

500-Hour Shiatsu Practitioner Program

September, 2017 - September, 2018

One 4-Day Weekend Per Month for One Year

Whether or not you have previous experience with bodywork therapy, this program is designed to prepare you with the skills, presence and understanding required to practice Zen Shiatsu. The weekend format allows students to study while maintaining full-time jobs or lifestyles.

​Classes meet one 4-day weekend per month for a total of 400 hours of training on-site. An additional 100 hours of Western Body, Eastern Mind: Integrated Anatomy & Physiology are administered online.

Students are required to complete reading and homework assignments each month and to practice outside of class time the hands-on lessons learned in class. Each month we offer two optional 2-hour Labs, at which time students may meet at the school to review class work with the guidance and support of an instructor.
