All levels, all welcome!

Sunday, September 19, 2021 
6:30am to 7:30pm

Please pre-register/book your class(es) below. You are welcome to come to multiple sessions during the day. Please no ‘no-shows’ as in-person spaces will be limited. Let us know if you need to cancel your booking!

Please plan to take part in our intentions practice on Sept 19, by taking a few minutes to write out your wishes while you’re here for class(es). These written intentions will remain private and the papers will be burned at the end of the day as a part of the fire ceremony.
