I have restarted in-person classes! PLEASE BE VACCINATED if you contact me about in-person classes. I still offer online classes for non-vaccinated people. Life is full of choices, and your private choices have public consequences. In an effort to maintain a healthy and safe working environment for my students and myself, I’m only allowing vaccinated people into the studio that I spend working upwards of twelve hours a day. Please respect this decision as I respect yours.
