Jo, Nick, Akiko

We warmly welcome you to the

Shantih Shala Healing Getaway

1~7/10/2017 泰国静心之旅

@ Shima Healing

Koh Yao Noi, Thailand

We warmly invite you to spend a week of healthy eating, cultivate mindfulness, spiritual practices, fun workshops in nature and SILENCE (optional) with like-minded free spirits!

Come enjoy the relaxing atmosphere of a quiet and welcoming village on Koh Yao Noi, located in the Phang-Nga bay of the Andaman Sea right between Phuket and Krabi. Largely undiscovered by mainstream tourism, it offers natural beauty, pristine beaches and an ideal setting for experiencing the natural elements and reconnecting with The Self.

Apart from our daily offer of various classes, you may also enjoy private sessions (at additional costs) with Josephine, Nick and/or Akiko, all carried out at the brand new Shima Healing Centre managed by Akiko.

The best part:

October is considered the low season in Thailand, which means:-

  • we will enjoy extra solitude on the island
  • overall prices are much lower
  • we are helping to support the local economy

About Your facilitator 你的导师:

Nick Fallon, England 飞龙, 英国

Nick teaches the Energy Class a blend of Qi Gong and Tai Ji that is accessible to people of all experience levels and abilities. The class is a moving meditation that ends with a free flow Energy Dance leaving the participants in a relaxed yet energized state of mind body harmony.

Nick Fallon begin walking the martial path as a teenager learning Karate. However when he met a student of Shaolin Kung Fu at University his love of Chinese culture began. After a hip injury in his early 30s the martial journey softened and turned inwards – the efficiency of Wing Chun the fluidity of Tai Qi and the energy flow of Qi Gong took his practice to another level. Nick now has over 20 years experience in Martial arts, and has moved to China to further deepen his knowledge.

Whilst Nick’s approach focuses on the practical aspects of internal Kung Fu, being Yin to redirect energy and Yang to deliver power, he also incorporates a holistic view encompassing mind body and Qi. Furthermore Nick is an Apprentice Energy Healer studying at Shantih Shala Holistic Arts.

飞龙自少年时代学习空手道开始,由此迈入武术之路,然而他在大学期间与一位少林功夫学习者的相遇开启了其对中国文化的热爱。由于30岁早期一次髋骨受伤,在此之后,飞龙的武术之旅变得更加柔和与向内关注 — 咏春(太极的一个分支)的功效和气功的能量流动将他的练习带入一个新的高度。迄今为止,飞龙在武术艺术方面已经具有超过20年的练习经验,目前搬来中国进一步加深自己的所学。

飞龙主要关注于内在功夫的练习方面:在阳的状态下带入力量,在阴的状态中重新配置能量。与此同时,他也将自己纳入一个包含身心和气的整体观中。更进一步地,飞龙作为一位能量治疗师的学习者,目前在“Shantih Shala 整体艺术” 工作室学习和实习。

Featuring our special guest facilitator:

Akiko Igarashi, Japan

特约导师: 五十嵐敦岐江, 日本

Akiko is a native of Hokkaido Japan, and the founder of Shima Healing. She has been a practitioner of Reiki since 2003, obtaining her Hatha Yoga teacher training in 2005 and Yoga Therapy teacher training in 2006 in India.

In ­2009, after 11 years of IT corporate life, she found her passion and discovered her own truth while teaching yoga to 30 children at an orphanage in Kathmandu, Nepal. On that occasion, the harmonic overtone from the sound of Tibetan Singing Bowls resonated with her deeply and shook the very foundation of her being.

This experience profoundly and forever changed the course of her life – in the pursuit to share the wisdom of the healing arts and to dedicate her life to children and their well-being. Ever since that fateful day, she has been full time teaching yoga, giving treatments Singing Bowl Therapy and Reiki at number of resorts such as Paradise Koh Yao, Six Senses, Niramaya, Glow Elixir and Island Yoga on Koh Yao Islands.

Her first objective is to teach the healing-arts for personal empowerment. Her goal is to touch as many people in her lifetime – hence the founding of the Shima Healing Centre as a training school and her teach-the-trainer program (TTP). Her style of teaching is very open and fun.

She continues to travel to stunning and high-energy places to host yoga and healing retreats around the world. She regularly offers charity concert with Tibetan Singing Bowls. You will find Akiko in Asia during winter and Europe/Turkey in the summer. In between, she is learning new skills to share, writing children’s books, or practicing just doing nothing. Most of all, she enjoys spending time with nature.




这一段经历深度并永远地改变了她的生活方向,自此之后,她以分享疗愈艺术的智慧为自己的使命,并献身于儿童健康与关爱事业中。自从命中注定的那天到来之后,她成为了一位全职瑜伽老师,同时在泰国瑶诺岛(Koh Yao Islands)上的诸多度假胜地开设西藏颂钵疗愈与能量治疗课程,比如瑶诺天堂(Paradise Koh Yao),六感( Six Senses), 尼拉玛雅(Niramaya), 艾力克赛尔(Glow Elixir ),岛屿瑜伽( Island Yoga)。
