Hastings Teaching Team:

Annie Cryar BSc Cert.Ed(1974) MRSS(T) – Branch Principal

Annie qualified as a teacher (QTS) in the early 1970‘s. With 40 years of teaching experience, her interest in the art of teaching and passion for real learning continues to the present day. Annie’s Yoga practice also spans decades and she qualified to teach Scaravelli inspired Yoga, at the same time discovering Qigong as part of her Shiatsu studies through the teaching of Nicola Ley and Paul Lundberg. She has more recently studied with Sifu Wing Cheung. She is committed to helping students find the best in themselves to teach the form, the essence and the spirit of Shiatsu, Qigong and Yoga. Her love of Shiatsu and its amazing potential for supporting well being has never diminished.

Catherine Burnett BEd MRSS(T)

Catherine graduated as a teacher of Physical Education with Dance in 1993 and her teaching background led her to a career in management training and development. She was responsible for the design and delivery of development workshops and one to one coaching, including stress management and the art of facilitation. A registered teacher with the Shiatsu Society, she enjoys sharing in the wonder of our connection with Qi and the natural world. Since 2007 she has been training with Sifu Wing Cheung, who inspired her to spread the benefits of Qigong to the wider community. She has worked in partnership with the N.H.S., E.S.C.C., Hastings Borough Council and Rother District Council on various community well being projects. The combination of the ancient wisdom of Taoism and new perspectives in Energy Medicine continues to influence her teaching. Catherine is passionate about the integration of Shiatsu and Qigong into mainstream healthcare

Rose Fuhrmann PhD MA Cert.Ed MRSS(T)

Rose’s life and work are rooted in a deep understanding of ‘The Way’. She brings a depth of knowledge of Chinese Medicine, of the foundations of Shiatsu and of energy work to her teaching. Rose has a Doctorate in theology and a Masters in Sports Science and has brought her rigor to all aspects of the Shiatsu world. She has taught all levels of Shiatsu from beginners to post graduate and has also worked as a member of the support team in mainstream schools, working with language, special needs and PSHE departments. Rose is an experienced Qigong teacher specialising in Qigong for students and practitioners of therapies within other fields of energy healing such as Osteopathy, Alexander Therapy and Cranio-Sacral Therapy. Rose is also a Voice Work practitioner; she brings many skills to her teaching of Shiatsu.

Mark Barwell CET MRSS(T)

Mark has been developing his spiritual and healing abilities since 1996, focusing on four main strands: Shiatsu, Reiki, Shamanism and massage/bodywork. He is a teacher, practitioner, facilitator and guide in each of these areas, combining compassion with creativity to help people to move forward with their lives and wellbeing. Mark’s design and art work encourages an organic connection to form and function and this flows alongside the main motivation of his path: that of helping others to help themselves.
