Ashi around the world

I'm back from my trip to Germany! It was great, and the new Ashiatsu therapists in Weisbaden are amazing! Trying to figure out how to explain the Ashi-bar construction using the metric system was the hardest part ;) Dawn (our super fantastic awesome host and assistant instructor who's an Advanced Ashi and Ashi-Thai trained graduate) arranged a fabulous training site for us on the Weisbaden Army base. Petra and Sabine are the dynamic Deutchland duo, graduates from the very first European Barefoot Basics class. Thanks Miss Dawn, Corey, KC, and all our amazing Weisbaden bodies that we massaged, y'all made it awesome! Here is our group, Petra, Sabine, Miss Dawn and myself in the Weisbaden Ashiatsu training room!:

This past weekend was the TAMT (Texas Association of Massage Therapists) 10th annual convention in Ft Worth, where I taught 2 intro to Ashiatsu classes, and demonstrated the work at a booth. We showed how versatile Ashi can be at an event - we worked through clothing using Ashi-Thai and the Ashi-Anma techniques, and worked directly on the skin with the moves we are best known for from our Barefoot Basics, Anterior/Sidelying and Advanced Ashi classes. Thanks to Jamie, Robyn, Adella, Susan and Cindy for all their help at the booth, Super thanks to all the "Purple Shirts" for everything, to Terry for his awesome history lessons, and to Shelli for a FANTASTIC time :D
