Further Trainings (EMR/ASCA)

EMR/ASCA compliant training courses for body therapists and other interested people

At Kientalerhof we understand further education as the path to embodiment. As humans, we are present in our body experience. But we also learn and develop our ability to cope in the world, to perceive it appropriately and to realise values as embodied beings. We are not simply observing life, but are embedded in its wholeness. This experience of being embedded in life is called embodiment.


At Kientalerhof, the idea of the embodiment has always formed the core of our offer. Our educations and further trainings in bodywork as well as our offer of shorter courses and seminars are gathered around this core. Our endeavour: We get together in a place of learning where life happens, with joy and seriousness. Like this we can share our perceptions, values and experiences.


But embodiment means more than that. Whatever we are, whatever we do – the real value of all this is that we can embody it as a whole person. Only when all of this is embodied in us it can develop real power. In the end, this is more than competence, it is embodied human maturity.

Further Trainings by Method

New courses are continually being added to the advanced training program at Kientalerhof, which focus, supplement and expand the competencies of therapists. By clicking on one of the tiles you can directly access the various advanced training courses tailored for different methods.

Further Trainings by Topic

In order to make it easier for you to find what you are looking for, we did not only group our training courses by method (see above), but also by thematic focus. If you prefer to select your training by topic rather than method, the following tiles will take you to an overview per topic.

Overview of cross-method training courses (EMR/ASCA)

In the following calendar you will find an overview of all further training courses at the Kientalerhof, which are EMR/ASCA compliant and can be attended independently of your own therapy method. Note: If you are interested in a second body therapy method in addition to your current method and would like to integrate it into your practice, you can also attend the first level of each training course as EMR/ASCA compliant advanced training.

Our locations, gastronomy and surroundings

Learning in the middle of nature – this is possible at the Campus Kientalerhof. Due to our rural location, our educations and courses create a special spirit, since the participants usually stay overnight during the training blocks and can thus fully immerse themselves in the training and the group processes. In addition, the nature around us makes it possible to take learning breaks directly outside and to air out the mind.

The history of the Kientalerhof

The Kientalerhof has a long and varied history. Initially built as a sanatorium, it later served, among other things, holiday-hungry Mercedes workers from Stuttgart, before finally falling into a deep sleep. Then, Kientalerhof was kissed awake in 1985 by a group around Mario Binetti and from then on served as a centre for macrobiotics. Gradually, educations in body therapy were added, beginning with Shiatsu. This focus increased more and more. Today, the Kientalerhof is a campus for body therapy with a nationwide reputation.
