From Liz Arundel, Shiatsu Shin Tai Teacher, Scotland Just back from the teacher Training at the BSS in London. We had such a fabulous time, exchanging Shin Tai treatments, playing with proprioceptive exercises and Qi Gong, showcasing the talented styles of teaching we all have, and sharing gorgeous food.
Thanks to Char Scrivener, Gill Hattersley, and Tracy Krikler for all the organizing. The School is strong and providing excellent Shiatsu Shin Tai training for future students. So delighted to be back 'home'. Thanks gang!
The Primary Information System Takes Primary Placement in Curriculum
Teachers at the British School of Shiatsu in London are gearing up for the beginning of their 2014-15 courses. For the second year in a row, they are beginning their curriculum with Governing Vessel/Spine and Conception Vessel/Hara classes. The study of the primary information system of the body (GV/CV) is now the primary part of their shiatsu curriculum.
It makes so much sense to begin the study of shiatsu with the study of GV/CV! The British School of Shiatsu is the first shiatsu school to make the core Shin Tai courses the first part of every student's training. Beginning in autumn of 2013, Char Scrivener and Gill Hattersley, the directors of the school, put the Governing Vessel/Spine and Conception Vessel/Hara classes before the more traditional shiatsu study. Reports are that students seemed to thrive with the new curriculum, and that it was a fantastic success.
