Workshops & Events

Workshops are a great way to strengthen your practice outside of weekly instructor led classes. I encourage all my students to try and attend one skills focused workshop every six months to keep your practice growing and evolving. If you have questions about which workshop would be the right fit for you, please send me an email and we’ll set up some time to discuss.
