Workshops. Courses. Tutorials. Supervision.

Teaching activities

Teaching is sharing, encouraging each other and growing together.

Alexandra Gelny


I have always taken great pleasure in teaching and facilitating. The first workshop I held was more than 25 years ago – back then as a student.

For some years now, I have been sharing my experience and what nourishes my work in workshops. This means a lot to me and I am infinitely grateful for these opportunities.

Teaching also keeps reminding me that it’s important to continue to learn and I learn a lot from each participant in my trainings. 

My teaching actitivies

I teach in several countries and in several languages (German, Italian, English, occasionally French).

My workshops are mostly aimed at shiatsu practitioners or practitioners of other bodywork methods, occasionally also at midwives or simply anyone interested. 

In the past years, I have been teaching mainly courses on Wellmother Maternity shiatsu (menstrual cycle, fertility, pregnancy, birth and beyond), but also on embryology for shiatsu practitioners. For 2024, I am planning some projects facilitating Sei-Ki.

Information on current events are given in the language(s) in which the teaching event is offered.

For 1:1 classes, supervision or tutorials, please contact me via email.
