ACADEMY of JAPANESE PRUNING and JAPANESE GARDENS CREATING
of PURE "SUKIYA" STYLE
My credo ...? AUTHENTICITY!
Among the many styles that characterize the architecture and art of the Japanese garden, the sukiya style, born from the universe of tea,
emphasizes the use of natural materials, creation of a relaxing atmosphere and attention to detail. It is characterized by the simplicity in a reverence
made to the nature. It is Japan that I love! Whether you are an amateur or a professional gardener, you will have the opportunity to learn and practice the
japanese pruning, niwaki shaping, or the japanese garden creation, through various short courses, in order to express your creativity ...

Beauty, aestheticism... but not only. I offer you the opportunity to discover the Japanese pruning or the creation of Japanese gardens
under a highly rewarding aspect, where at the crossroads of personal development, spirituality and meditation in motion, they become
an ideal support of
NIWA or NIWAKITHERAPY©, form of art therapy or hortitherapy,
for those who do not want to remain a mystery, always wanting to learn more about themselves and decipher the meaning of their live.
You will have the opportunity to practice this garden art giving it the spiritual dimension creative of harmony that it had at the beginning, on the model of insiders,
then later Zen Buddhist gardener monks.
All japanese pruning or niwaki creating courses are organized for a maximum of four students.
For japanese gardens courses, I can only accept one student at a time. Each participant is given a complete documentation, so that you can concentrate on the practical side.
My teaching approach is what I would call « open », where I follow closely the student's observations, to be able to show the right gesture at the right time.
In this way there is an exchange between student and teacher, which I find rich and easier. If as a student you feel this mutual respect, and the understanding of your uniqueness,
then you will feel free to let your creativity express itself.
