Yumi was a lovely teacher. The workshop was calming & relaxing. An extra 30 mins to perfect the technique would have been ideal. I enjoyed the morning.

This was my second class and I was equally impressed as the first time. The teacher gives clear instructions and plenty of scope to practice. I always felt comfortable and encouraged to keep trying. I thoroughly recommend this class.
