Shiatsu Basic Training

In Shiatsu classes with English as the teaching language, there are no longer any Corona rules except for the respective general decrees of the Berlin Senate.


The basic course of the basic training consists of eight parts of 12 hours each.
In the first stage of the three-year Shiatsu training, the training group (AG) and 4 supplementary courses must also be taken. Instead of the AG, a 5th supplementary course can also be taken as an alternative.
With an additional 2-3 one-to-one lessons, a certificate for the basic training can be obtained.
Attention! For the basic training, it is strongly recommended to attend an introductory course beforehand.

The completion of the Shiatsu basic training enables qualified wellness treatments. The training is traditionally carried out on the floor, which is pleasantly soft in our classrooms. The core of the basic training is the basic course. Here, a solid Shiatsu basic form (Kata) and six meridian-katas are learned for the general stimulation of the self-healing powers. The most important techniques for the treatment of body segments are also included. For each of the eight parts of the basic training, a part of the training group (AG) is offered. Depending on the needs of the students, the contents of the basic courses are repeated, deepened and supplemented. Exclusively in the AG, stretching and self-treatment of all 12 meridians are learned. If the basic training is to be concluded with a certificate or used as an entry into the 3-year Shiatsu training, the flat rate E with 4 additional supplementary courses is the appropriate scope. For detailed contents from part to part as well as the AG (training group) see below.

This registration form is the cheapest option for the participants.
b) The advertised price of the course package E is only valid for concrete (course-related) registration of all 4 supplementary courses up to 2 weeks before the beginning of the course at the latest. If the registration takes place later than 2 weeks before the beginning of the first course, the price remains valid only if the concrete supplementary courses are registered at the same time.

d) In case of a registration after one or more installment payment dates have already expired, all due installments must be paid within one week.
e) In the case of individual packages of at least 80 lessons, payment by instalments is also possible. Upon request, the school will make an offer, whereby the number of installments will be adapted to the teaching period.

d) If a replacement person is provided, only 30 € instead of 130 € respectively 60 € instead of 250 € are due. However, if the replacement person pays less, for whatever reason, the difference will also be deducted.
e) From the beginning of the course or the course package or later, the complete course fee is due in case of cancellation. There will therefore be no repayment of any part of the fee.
f) In case of payment in instalments and a 4-week period of notice to the next regular payment date, the remaining instalments only have to be paid half.
g) Withdrawals of parts of a course package registration are not possible. Withdrawals are only valid in writing. The date of arrival at the school counts as the date of withdrawal.


a) Changes of booking must be requested in writing from the school management.
b) Requests for rebooking can be rejected by the school management for organizational reasons.
c) Approved rebookings from one supplementary course to another will cost a processing fee of 10 € per course if the rebooking request is made before the start of the course.

Participants who do not agree to a postponement have the right to withdraw from the corresponding course free of charge respectively to a refund of the relative share of the costs.


Bring along to class: warm, loose, clean clothes (e.g. no smell of smoke), a fresh pair of socks (only used for class) and according to the duration of the course: food and drink for self-catering.
Further information is given in the announcement for certain courses.


The first reminder for non-payment is free of charge. Each further reminder costs a fee of 10 €. From the expiry of the deadline for the 2nd reminder, an additional 4% default interest will be charged.


It is generally not possible to transfer course places to another person within the framework of course package registrations. If a written application is received at least 3 days before the start of the course, transfers in individual courses are possible with the approval of the school management. Said transfers cost a processing fee of 20 €. Discounts can only be transferred if the reason for the discount applies equally to the person to whom the discount was transferred. Otherwise, the difference must be paid additionally.


If a written apology is made before the start of the course, missed courses, provided they continue to be offered on a goodwill basis, can be made up free of charge within one year, provided that there is still room in the respective substitute course. Supervision courses are excluded from this regulation. In the case of full courses, a maximum of 2 persons can observe the contents of the course as an alternative. This goodwill arrangement means that in the case of supplementary courses, only the supplementary course with the same content can be made up for. The change from one supplementary course to another requires an approved rebooking. Missed courses that are not offered within a year, e.g. some supplementary courses, can be made up for at the next opportunity, even if it is only possible after the one-year period.
There is no claim that a missed course will take place again at all!


a) The supplementary course „Supervision“ is expressly excluded from all goodwill regulations if the teaching time of the course would have to be extended due to catching up.
b) Supervision courses require 2 x 2.5 hours for 4-6 participants, 3 x 2.5 hours for 7-9 participants and 4 x 2.5 hours for 10-12 participants. The school management can adjust the number of dates announced in the program according to these needs – even for a short time.
c) A rebooking into a supervision course is only possible if it is not the 4th, 7th or 10th registration for the course, because this would increase the costs for the school.
