Our online video classes are created to provide a rich learning experience in Shiatsu Shin Tai.  Bodywork enthusiasts from all over the world are learning new skills that bring more transformation to their treatments and more inspiration into their daily lives.  Benefits of online learning include:

  • Watch videos and lectures again and again. 

  • Learn directly from the developer of the work. 

  • Access accompanying written materials that are not normally provided in the live classes. 

  • Receive ongoing assistance by way of interactive comment sections and private facebook groups.

It is common that students who have previously taken live courses enroll in the online modules to supplement their knowledge and skills.  Massage and shiatsu therapists that have never studied with Saul are taking advantage of getting some training even though they have not studied Shiatsu Shin Tai with an instructor in-person. We recommend that professional Shin Tai students supplement the online video courses with live courses.  To find other Shin Tai instructors, please go to:  http://www.shintaiinternational.com/teachers/.    

 

There are presently five courses available.  

We recommend moving through them in the following order, although this is not necessary:


Hara:  Traditional Treatment

In order to have a complete shiatsu practice, practitioners need to have a good command of traditional hara work. Detailed, clear videos will lead you step-by-step through a protocol in traditional shiatsu hara work as well as basic theory.  The focus is on reviving the original spirit of hara work that was part of traditional shiatsu.

Shiatsu Techniques of the Masters:  experience the original spirit of shiatsu

The original shiatsu masters focused on moving chi. Many of their techniques have been lost in today's standardized shiatsu education. This course revives the core elements of traditional shiatsu. Learning (or relearning!) the roots of this work can bring inspiration & creativity into your practice.

The course is equivalent to a 3 day live class, and has over 6 hours of video instruction + written materials. Participants can move through the course at their own pace, and the material is presented in step-by-step directions that are easy to follow.
