Schedule

Rather than flood you with information in an intensive format that feels stressful and doesn't give you time to integrate the learning, this program is spread out. Manageable amounts of learning each week gives you time to implement what you're learning during the course. You will graduate with confidence in your new skills and be able to maintain your regular life obligations.

Classes will be held at Namaste North studio, in Barrie, on Thursdays, starting in May and running until December. Theses sessions will start with practice at 4pm and move to workshop or lecture learning for the remainder of the evening. 

There will also be 7 weekend intensives through the course, roughly every 4-6 weeks, from 8am-5pm.

Like many schooling programs, we take a summer break. No classes in July to let you enjoy a break for summer and catch up/get ahead on the course.
