Class Updates

Hi yogis! 

MAJOR apologies for any confusion recently regarding classes.  Here is a quick update on the next few weeks. 

Class for today (Tuesday 4/12) is cancelled due to a space conflict.  All other classes are running as usual for the rest of the term, and we have worked out our recent issues with the Slifka Chapel (thank you all for your patience on this!).  

Next week we will have a special guest teacher joining us!  We are very excited about this event, so stay tuned for more details!  

Again, huge apologies from our end regarding space and instructor conflicts.  You can blame Corinne's double theses for recent lapses in communication! 

Keep your eyes on your email for more information on next week's guest!
