    5. PRIOR CLASS CREDIT: if you have class credit with us, let us know so we can deduct it from your total before you make a purchase.

This discount roughly matches the prorated value of the class in addition to (1) the time a teacher must take to update a student on the class's expectations and (2) access to the lesson material they missed. Join any time!
  5. You must sign up and pay for a class at least 48 hours before attending that class. If you would like to purchase a class and attend class the same day, please call us at 1-707-466-6686. We need this time to make sure there is room in the class and, if not, to add another teacher.
  6. Pay for your class(es). You'll receive an email confirmation.
  7. Roughly a week prior to the class's start time, you'll receive a welcome email with any additional information you need to participate (if you're registering after the class's start time, this timetable will vary).
