Foundation Course

Here are some pictures from the Autumn foundation course.

Dates for the spring course are : 4th and 5th April, 2nd and 3rd May and 30th and 31st May 2020.

I thoroughly enjoyed the course, I felt I learnt so much and the pace was perfect. It felt like we got so much in but without feeling rushed and it’s really affirmed to me that I want to take my learning in shiatsu on to the next stage (when I can fit this in!)
You were calm, thoughtful, fun and knowledgeable and were a fantastic teacher and the whole group felt so lovely to be a part of and learn together. (Louise)


Some images from the recently completed foundation course here in Cardiff. I am offering another course in the Autumn, details of which are on the foundation page of my website. Students learnt a full body basic sequence aswell as having an introduction to the essence of Shiatsu and its profound healing .

Some quotes from the students:

‘I love shiatsu, its changed my life already…’

‘I am staggered by the little but immense learning that was introduced over 3 weekends. ‘Little’ in the sense of everything that you offered comes from so much more’

‘Your approach is wonderful – you have the ability to invite, offer, demonstrate, guide, listen and support; and hold the space.’


I’m so excited to be offering a foundation course here in Cardiff in the spring. Shiatsu has changed me and my life in so many ways and I have a passion to share it so that more people can benefit from its profound depth and healing . I love working with people in private practice because of the depth we can go to and I love going out into the community so that I can connect with more people who may not come into contact with Shiatsu otherwise. Beginning my teaching journey in Shiatsu is another way to spread the magic of this beautiful practice.

Shiatsu has enabled me to contact myself in deeper and fuller ways , to feel safer to go into my own dark places and stay with difficult emotions and painful feelings in my body. It is a deeply nurturing and nourishing practice as well as challenging taking us to our edges where we can grow  Its fun and life affirming, real and grounded, its deep and playful.

This course is a great introduction to see if its for you, to get flavour of the practice, learn some skills and begin to connect with yourself more deeply. I’d love for you to join me if you feel called to do so.


I am offering a funded place on the course this Spring to someone who would find it impossible to attend for financial reasons and really wants to begin their Shiatsu journey. Please email me to say why you want to do the course and a little about your financial situation.

My Shiatsu studies were made possible by Eric Joseph, a very generous man who funded my training. This has been such a great gift to me and changed my life so much I am eternally grateful to him. I offer this place in honour and in memory of him, with the deepest gratitude.
