Elevated tatami classes for those who cannot sit seiza

IMG_0208With the building of the elevated tatami table, Issoan Tea school now offers classes in this style to those who cannot sit seiza.  The portable tatami table is designed to be used in both the winter sunken hearth configuration, as well as in the summer furo season.  The table is transportable and can be set up anywhere there is space.

Because of this flexibiltiy, students can study most of the temae of the Urasenke curriculum, and guests can enjoy the experience on stools without the pain of sitting on their knees.

If you have been interested in taking chado lessons, but have hesitated because you cannot sit on your knees in the tea room, please contact Margie Yap, instructor (503)645-7058 to arrange a trial lesson on the new tatami table.
