Please note that all regularly scheduled classes will be interrupted by this process. Paul’s Friday 7 am class will be held. Then beginning 9 am Friday through 3pm Sunday regular classes are cancelled. Please attend the Saturday and Sunday assessment classes. We need you as students. Our world-class Iyengar teaching certification process can not happen without studios like ours and without students like you. Text Sara to inform her that you are available for one or two of three time slots: 8-noon Saturday, 1-4 Saturday and 8-noon, Sunday. You will be needed for less than two hours, but we need to have all volunteers on the list before we can assign your exact time.
