We are currently accepting applications. Our training schedule is flexible, to meet the needs of the individual.

We encourage visits to the Training Course by:

  • Private Students: intensive work for serious students wishing to deepen their experience and understanding of the Technique.

  • Prospective Trainees: one day to one-week visits—the opportunity to experience being in the training course.

  • Postgraduate Students: advanced training

  • Qualified Teachers: an opportunity to develop your skills in a supportive and friendly environment (CPD).

With a wide range of possibilities for individual study, professional training and postgraduate development we are very likely to be able to come up with a plan that can work well for you.
