Monthly Classes, Discussions, and Seminars

Generally, the schedule each month is as follows:

Mastery Roundtable is the First Tuesday of the month at 8pm (starting January 2020, this will be the First Wednesday of the month at 6:30pm)
Yoga Seminar is the First Thursday of the month at 6:30-8:30pm
Jr. Mastery Seminar is the First Saturday of the month at 12pm

However, because of other one-time events that interfere, several dates have been adjusted, and in a couple of cases times have also been adjusted. The schedule below reflects those adjustments. Any entry in red is either a different time or different day of the month from the usual.

Please Note: Additional changes may be announced throughout the year due to unforeseen scheduling conflicts.
