MEET YOUR INSTRUCTOR
Instructor Yoshiko Hardick was born in Sasebo, Japan. From the time she was young, Hardick had been fascinated by traditional Japanese arts like Sado (tea ceremony), Nichibu (traditional dance) as well as a passion for classical ballet.
After getting married, Hardick moved to the U.S. and started her lifelong study of the tea ceremony. She spent over 20 years studying under tea masters Atsuko Lefcourte and Chieko Mihori and received her cha mei (instructor name) Soukou in 2009. In 2012, she became a certified instructor of the Omote Senke School of Tea in Kyoto, Japan. As with any Japanese traditional art form, it is a lifetime of learning and she continues her own study as well as teaching others.
