Alongside the Level 4 Diploma in Shiatsu (RQF), we run a popular Grassroots Shiatsu event every Saturday morning of the course. Qigong and ‘Learn Shiatsu for Friends and Family’ offer you, as a student, to get back to basics and enjoy learning with the community each month.
St Leonards Studio, 3 Grand Parade , St Leonards-on-Sea, East Sussex TN38 0DD. Our venue is on the seafront, which gives us plenty of opportunities to sit on the beach and practice Qigong by the sea!
