I believe there is a small sprite in each flower because I get into my special zone when I touch them. There is something magical about them! Please touch and feel the healing power of plants materials.

There are about 5 lesson days in a month. You may make a reservation by choosing your favorite day and time.
There is no rule how many times you should come to the classroom in 1 month.
But please take 2 lessons at once.
I experienced that 2 lessons taker can develop their skill and their sense of space surprisingly.
Because most of students who take just 1 lesson easily forget their sense that they finally acquired at the last lesson.
If you take 2 lessons, I’m sure you can go to the higher level rapidly.

3 lessons in one day are acceptable if you want to study intensely (up to 6 lessons per month are acceptable).
You may study at your own pace.
A reservation should be made by 3 days before a lesson.

As for a trial lesson, please check the page about“Trial Lesson”.
