We consider teaching at the Iokai Shiatsu Professional Training Programme a craft as well. Being able to teach requires extensive knowledge and especially experience. The teachers ensure that their classes have sufficient depth and that each student receives correct advice and feedback. In addition to the teacher or teachers, there are always one or two assistants present during the classes to support the learning process.
