private classes

Learning this modality at any level is intense: initially, it requires a higher level of physical fitness & challenges one’s mental capabilities, all while learning to use your feet as hands! In class, we compare it to getting behind the wheel of your car, and trying to drive off using your feet! Regardless of one’s physical & mental fitness levels, this is a challenging aspect & any distraction can be too much. 

"Training with this magnitude of intensity deserves one to one attention." -Brenda Blakesley

Why take a Private Class?

More practice/receiving time. Work on the techniques most difficult for YOU. Work at your own pace. Schedule class when it’s convenient for you/family/work. Secure dates, no cancellations due to registration requirements. Greater retention of material & technique. No distractions from or waiting on classmates. More time to address “real world learning” of Ashiatsu. More detailed info to help incorporate Ashiatsu into your current practice. More time to ask/answer questions. Guest Clients experienced with Ashiatsu & more detailed feed back. Relaxed learning atmosphere

HOURLY TUTORING

$45/hour or $350/8 hour day

For therapists who have taken Ashiatsu/barefoot effleurage massage previously (with any company, at any time), wanting to improve their skills and increase their quality of work. Through a complimentary consultation, we will determine what's most important for you to focus on and the number of hours needed for your session. It is possible to choose what you'd like to work on most: body mechanics, creating a protocol, refining specific techniques, gaining knowledge of equipment set-up and supplies to make your work easier.

The rates above are for you to come to the Las Vegas or Tucson location. For Brenda to travel to your location, additional costs such as airfare, transportation, and lodging will be arranged. Please contact her directly to discuss options via email or phone:
