Workshops and Residential Courses

In line with Government Health and Safety precautions in operation for the duration of the Covid-19 Virus, Ki Kai Shiatsu School’s premises at Liverpool Road Community Centre, Laycock Street N1 1LP are now closed until further notice.

The Intro One day and Weekend Workshops are cancelled pending rescheduling when Covid-19 Lockdown restrictions are lifted. Future  Workshops in Spring and Summer 2021 will only run if the closure restrictions are lifted at least four weeks before scheduled dates. Anyone who has already booked, if their workshop date/s doesn’t run will be entitled to a full refund, or a place on a re-scheduled workshop date/s, if necessary, once the present restrictions are lifted.

As well as our professional training courses, Ki Kai Shiatsu School runs workshops and residential events. These allow the school to offer personal development and “taster” experiences to the general public, current and former students and prospective students and those  interested in finding out about what is involved in training solely for personal development and leisure interest, or the additional commitment and study required in a professional training before committing to enrolment on our Certificate or Diploma courses.

These workshops serve as an opportunity to gain a sense of Ki Kai and to decide if it suits you: our teaching style is informal, friendly and supportive and these workshops are particularly useful for students considering the new Undergraduate Certificate and Diploma courses in Movement Shiatsu at Ki Kai Shiatsu School starting the weekend of 19th & 20th September 2020. For students already qualified in shiatsu, these workshops are a gateway to postgraduate studies at the School for Experiential Education (SEED)
