ABOUT OUR WORKSHOP & COURSE FORMATS:

Drop-in passes and memberships do not apply to courses and workshops. Each course or workshop must be registered for separately

Courses: Our courses inlcude 4-6 interactive, weekly sessions. This approach allows for a progressive experience and/or a deeper exploration of topics. In addition, course participants receive access to a virtual course portal that includes recordings of any live-streamed classes, and a set of on-demand video practices and other learning materials specially selected to complement the course. To allow plenty of time to explore these offerings, all participants will have access to the course portal for 90 days. All participants will recieve an email a day or two before the course begins with information on studio policies, how to join a class virtually, and how to access the course portal.

Hybrid Courses - Many of our courses have the option to join in-studio or virtually, so be sure to read the course title & description carefully when you sign up. By registering for the IN-STUDIO option of a hybrid course, you may choose to attend each session in-person or online. If you prefer to attend all the sessions online, please register for the VIRTUAL listing of the course as in-person spots are limited.

In-Studio Courses - Courses with only an IN-STUDIO listing will not include a virtual participation option, and class sessions will not be recorded.

Workshops: Our workshops are single modules that either introduce a concept that supports your regular practice, or dives deep into a special topic to stoke your curiosity. Workshops come with additional take-home handouts and video replay access to solidify your learning.

**In the event of a mandated shut down due to COVID, workshops courses will pivot to virtual livestream classes or will be postponed, depending on the nature of the practice. Registration fees will not be refunded.
