Our classroom space is reserved for paid classes, private lessons or retreat attendees only. If you are joining us for a retreat or class and need to see visitors, please arrange to meet them on our sales floor or at one of the wonderful restaurants downtown. This will ensure the rest of the attendees are not distracted. **Nursing infants-in-arms only would be our only exception.
We want to respect your time and we expect to start classes on time. For this reason, we will have the classroom open 15 minutes prior to class start and you are welcome to get settled then. If an evening class, we will be locking our store doors 5 minutes prior to the start of class so we can all start on time. Please make proper accommodations to honor that schedule.
