Doe Warnes Tutor Website

Doe is an anatomy and physiology tutor, movement therapist and shiatsu practitioner. She blends together anatomy, bodywork and movement, as a way to raise body-awareness and self-awareness for personal and professional development. Doe has taught at the City Lit for over 15 years and has always been impressed with the ethos and commitment to learning set by the City Lit. Her teaching style is experiential and her approach is holistic, as she looks at the body from a scientific, physical, emotional, psychological and energetic perspective. Doe has a shiatsu practise and runs workshops throughout London and Hertfordshire. ‘My curiosity and fascination for the human body has led me to explore a wide range of therapeutic disciplines over the last 40 years. I love it when people learn about the body and become inspired by their own body/mind relationship. People often find that they can practically bring in some ideas to improve their well-being e.g. by understanding how the skeleton supports the body can be translated into getting up the stairs with more ease.’ Doe Warnes FwSS, RSME/T,ITEC
