Project Description

Join This Workshop Day!

On Sept 8th, Prabha will teach you how to massage all parts of your own body – from head and face to arms and hands; from back and belly to legs and feet – using Do-In self-massage techniques. These treat all of your meridians and a number of specific meridian points and you will feel amazed after the practice! Will you join us? More information can be found below!

Do-In Yoga is not just Yoga but Self-Therapy and it is very rejuvenating. Make an effort to be in this workshop and you’ll be amazed at the benefits” – Participant of our morning Do-In Yoga classes



What is Do-In Self-Massage?

Do-In originates from the Japanese Dao-Yin and is an ancient physical therapeutic practice, said to be over 5000 years old and possibly even preceding yoga. This practice is the precursor of for example Tai Chi, Qigong, Shiatsu and Martial Arts. When Shiatsu practitioners are taught how to massage their clients, a massage technique for which their own body needs to be flexible and strong as doing the massage is intense exercise for the practitioner itself, they are also taught how to work on themselves first so they can give the most to others. Shiatsu and Do-In self-massage are massage techniques that use mostly the palm and thumb pressure coordinated with the breath to massage the entire body, with specific focus on the meridians. Special meridian points (as are used in acupuncture) are targeted as well.

What will you learn in this retreat?

In this weekend retreat you will learn:

  • Where the 12 main meridians are in your body

  • How to use your palms and thumbs and breath to massage your own body in a slow and deeply powerful way

  • Which Self-Massage techniques to use for: face, head, arms, hands, belly, back, legs and feet

  • A few important meridian points to include in your practice, and how to search online for more
