Why a Members Only Area?

During my time in Japan at SAORINOMORI, I’ve had several discussions with Akiko and Kenzo about sharing SAORI techniques over the internet. Their feeling is that the information shared via the internet needs to be done in a way that is respectful to other studios. On the one hand, the internet can be a great platform for sharing information and engaging students. But on the other hand, materials posted by one teacher can keep a student from visiting a studio close to them.

So the compromise has been to put videos and tutorials behind a password-protected wall in a “members only” section of our website. All are welcomed to join, of course! To access our video and PDF tutorials, please log in or sign up below.
