Our vision of theaching

Teaching is not only motivating our students to learn, but teaching them in a manner that is relevant, meaningful, and memorable. It’s about caring for our art, having a passion for it, and conveying that passion to everyone, most importantly to our students.
Teaching is also about bridging the gap between theory and practice.
Teaching is about listening, questioning, being responsive, and remembering that each student is different.
Teaching is about being flexible, fluid, experimenting, having the confidence to react and adjust to changing circumstances.
Good teachers migrate between being an authoritarian dictator on the one hand and a pushover on the other at all times, depending on the circumstances. They know where they need to be and when.
Teaching is also about style. Should good teaching be entertaining? Yes, and it doesn’t mean that it lacks in substance!
Teaching is about humor. This is very important. It’s about being self-deprecating and not taking yourself too seriously.
Teaching is about caring, nurturing, and developing minds, skills and talents. It’s about devoting time to every student.

At the end of the day, teaching is about having fun, experiencing pleasure and intrinsic rewards…
It’s about the former student who says your course changed her/his life. It’s about another telling you that your course was the best one he’s ever taken.

I enjoyed so much the wonderful warmness of her, combined with her perfect knowledge of massage technic and knowledge of teaching this to me. - Ute

About Nathalie richalet

 “Having an open mind is not to have it open to all nonsense.”  At 16, I adopted this motto from Jean Rostand, writer, moralist, biologist, historian of sciences and French academia.  And I have to say that keeping his words in mind have helped me to keep a cool and wise attitude on numerous occasions.  Here’s my story.

In 1992, I completed a Master Degrees in Art History in France and worked as a freelance graphic designer for the next 8 years ending up my career in New York.

My life changed in the middle of a cold, New York winter’s night when I was awakened by a deep voice telling me that I had to stop the way I was living and that I had to make drastic changes to my life!  I took note that this was a serious warning.

All the life choices I had made so far were not only to earn a good living but, above all, to run away from who I was.  Fearing my feelings and acceptance of myself, I found comfort in living in a superficial world, shielded from real human relationships by my computer. I soon realized that I can never really run away from myself.

Awareness has risen over the day after when I asked the lady who gave me a Thai foot reflexology if I could try to do it on her. She agreed and at that moment I made the decision to become a reflexologist.

Moving to Arizona, away from the stress of New York, I began to teach myself foot reflexology and encountered Amerindian shamans.  Through them, I began to feel that I was truly a ‘medicine woman’ and so began my journey towards self acceptance.

In 2001, I was back in France and enrolled in a one year training course for foot reflexology. Since that time, I have kept on learning and developing new holistic therapies in the quest for optimal health and wellness.  At that time, I practiced shiatsu, aromatherapy, massage, color puncture, reflexologies and ito-thermie.
I also became a Reiki Ryoko Master, Shihan (4th degree) enabling me to pass attunements on to others.

After a few years of practice, I realized that people not only wanted to feel relaxed and have tension release but were searching to find the energy and space within them to make changes towards a better way of living.  I started to integrate more spiritual and esoteric approaches to my healing, tailoring sessions to each individual-taking into consideration their deeper needs.

On an unexpected trip to Bali end of 2011, I realized IT was my soul’s destiny. I returned a few month later to open a massage school. During that time I met Agung, a Balinese healer, a Balian, who invited me to become his student.  In the jungle, he taught me the use of plants, mantras and turning the fire (Shiwa, Vishnu, Brahma) for three and a half years before he died in September 2015. It is also around this time, after my business partnership dissolved, that I started my own Institute of Healing Arts, Rahasia Nyaman – Secret of Comfort.

Encouraged by Agung teachings and being empowered by the energy of Bali, feet began ‘talking’ to me - I found that by touching someone’s feet, I could get in touch with their soul or inner being.  Questioning images as they popped up in my head, I could speak to my clients about what I was seeing and feeling - guiding them towards the path of their happiness and realization of self. I was becoming a true healer.

It took me decades to understand that being a healer was not like being a ‘wizard’, using some kind of magic to do incredible, demonstrative things for people.  Healing can be as simple and smooth as finding the right way to feel and talk to people without harming them with any kind of dogma.  With a genuine heart and free soul, I’m happy to share my knowledge, experience and passion with others.  I would like my students to understand that, by learning massage and foot reflexology, they will not only help others to heal both physically and emotionally but they will also heal themselves.  They will awaken others to their spirituality which, for me, is freedom.  When students leave my courses, my hope is that they are empowered by who they are and have the courage to act positively.

I was so lucky to meet the best teacher here in Ubud !!! Thank you for your patience... - Krystyna M.
