What materials are provided for class?  In order to make class as interactive and hands on as possible, we will provide you with a series of links and information sheets five days before your class with your reminder email.  The internet has a wonderful amount of resources and we will link you to up to date resources on the net.  You do not need to print them off in advance.   We also make every effort to reduce paper use, and keep ours and your photocoping costs down.

If the cancellation occurs less than 14 days before the class there is a 50% cancellation fee. If it is less than 7 days there is no refund.  Request for date changes within 7 days of class will reflect a $75 fee.  Please keep this in mind when booking classes and plan to be finished your session by 35 weeks.
