Levels 3 & 4: Enrollment dates to be determined
NOTE: This is a 48-class session series, broken into 4 levels, plus 4 sessions for assessment testing. There are two assessments sessions at the beginning of the series, to establish a baseline; two sessions at the end of the series to measure the wonderful results you’ve attained.
The more classes you attend, the better your results will be. Each quarter is for two classes per week. But if you would like to attend more, you are welcome to drop in at either location; simply bring an addition $8 per session. If you miss a session in the group that you registered for, you may join me at one of the other classes.
