The work through movement teaches us how to influence and create more inner calmness, balance, stretch and flexibility .
Learning how to read your own body and relax it to be able to help your horse relax and work with you is one of the most rewarding things .

Equine Shiatsu foundation course in Croatia
3 DAY FOUNDATION COURSE | 6 – 8 October 2023
Friday 5-8pm | Saturday 10am-6pm | Sunday 10am-6pm
Shiatsu is a comprehensive system of natural therapy based on the principles of the Traditional Chinese Medicine. It was created as a combination of knowledge in human shiatsu therapy and horse acupuncture. It focuses on finding the causes of problems (inner imbalances) instead of just treating the symptoms. By regulating the flow of energy (Qi) through the channels (meridians) balance and vitality are restored to the body which improves general condition and health of horses.
During the Foundation Course you will familiarize yourself with shiatsu as a therapy, find out in which cases shiatsu benefits horses and get first-hand insight into how shiatsu functions. You will do a practical work on humans and horses and learn how to relax your horse through simple hand and finger pressures, stretches, light rotations and touch. You will acquire enough knowledge and skills to be able to give a relaxation treatment to your horse. The Foundation Course is intended for horse owners, but also for those who are in contact with horses and wish to build a deeper relationship with them (riders, trainers, therapeutic riding instructors…).
The course is led by Vedrana Ivčević, dip SES and Jele Dominis, dip SES.
Cost: 280 €
Booking is required. The number of participants is limited.

The School of Equine Shiatsu, Croatia
New generation starts Feb 2025
The school in Croatia is part of The School of Equine Shiatsu (England); it follows the same programme and abides by the high standards set by the main school. The School of Equine Shiatsu has been educating shiatsu practitioners for horses for over 15 years and is one of the founders of The Equine Shiatsu Association (tESA). The students who finish the school in Croatia receive the identical diploma as the students who finish education in England and are entitled to become members of tESA. The next group will start in February 2025.
The education is organized through weekend modules (24 weekends) so that it can be coordinated with other business and private obligations. Over those two and a half years there is a lot of practical work with people and horses. The students acquire eastern knowledges as well as knowledge in anatomy, physiology, pathology and horse behaviour.
