Strala Online 100+Hour Training: Connect and Heal with Shiatsu

You’ll discover the secrets and techniques that experienced teachers and healers use in their practice. And much more significantly, you’ll learn how to make these abilities a real part of your entire life. Shiatsu is a traditional Japanese bodywork method, based on the principles of acupuncture. It has evolved into an innovative healing modality that incorporates movement, meditation, and connection. Incredibly effective for the treatment of common injuries, as well as chronic pain, disability, and disease, shiatsu skills provide a great complement to yoga practice and leadership



A Personal Memo on Healing

Most of us live in a pretty constant state of stress, bombarded with imagery and algorithms aiming to optimize us.  We are mentally and physically exhausted in a way all the avocados and green juices can’t fix. There is little we can consume that will help, however an endless source of wisdom lives inside, waiting to be harvested and put into practice.

About Strala

Strala combines the movement and healing wisdom of tai chi with the practice forms of yoga, tai chi, qigong, and Traditional Chinese Medicine, as a way to help people release stress, heal, and move more easily through all kinds of challenge.

Strala is practiced in more than 100 countries, and thousands of people are leading Strala in studios, gyms, and schools worldwide. Even more Strala training graduates bring what they learn to their office, team, healing practice, and across all of life. It’s an inspiring group of leaders in business and government, art and architecture, schools and families. The mission we share is to bring harmony and ease into our bodies and minds, to accomplish far more in our lives and for this world, by softly embodying the changes we want to see around us.

Strala supports the Alliance for a Healthier Generation, the American Hearth Association, and BOKS, creating the right conditions and practices for health and achievement with students and faculty in more than 30,000 schools across the United States and Canada.

Strala was created by Tara Stiles, drawing on her background in classical ballet and choreography, as well as her long-time practice in yoga. Tara trained with Paul Taylor Dance Company choreographer and dancer Eileen Cropley, and began her yoga study in the 1990s with her ballet teacher, Rory Foster of American Ballet Theater. The science and movement of Strala is also guided by co-founder Mike Taylor. Mike studied mind-body medicine at Harvard, complementary medicine at Oxford, and has practiced Eastern movement and healing, including tai chi and qi gong, for 30 years. Sam Berlind is also a long-time member of the Strala Training Faculty, with primary responsibility for Traditional Chinese and Japanese Medicine. He led one of the most prestigious Traditional Japanese Medicine schools in NYC for 25 years.
