Hello! This is our new page for the Live Zoom classes that will be broadcast from the school for hybrid training. In this new format, in person and online students will be learning simultaneously. These broadcasts are open to local students who are unable to attend in person classes or who prefer to remain in online training -- as well as distance students who wish to tune in and train with us.
Below are the full schedule and options for training. For greatest simplicity, we have organized these first according to each class individually, then in class bundles for those who wish to attend multiple times a week.
Once you enroll in a class, it will show up on your account dashboard, and you will be able to attend each class within the class portal at the time & date specified.
We are happy in these challenging times that we have the ability to continue to offer the internal arts work through this medium. We believe that it is truly important to remain strong in mind, body and spirit through stressful changes. Thank you all for cultivating with us.
Note For Zoom Students
If you are an online student who would like further training support between classes, we highly recommend checking out our Online Resource Membership or Resources A La Carte. The online resource program is a separate section of our website containing video courses specifically designed to assist online-only students, as well as any other students who would like to have access to reference materials for at home training. This program is a growing section of our website with new courses & resources being added regularly.
