Class Space - Space is limited and there are usually more applicants than available class spaces.  The class instructor will notify you by email if we have a space for you in a class.  Instructors normally respond within 48 hrs of your application.  Only students who have been confirmed by an instructor for a class should fill out the class registration paperwork.
Medical Self Certification - Students often tell us they are worried about applying for our safe falling classes because of some medical or physical limitation.  
  • We are NOT medical professionals and are NOT qualified to say if it is safe for you to attend our classes.
  • Please complete the required "Medical Self-Certification" form to help you decide whether to register for a class.  The form identifies the activities and physical requirements for the classes.
  • If you have ANY concerns about any requirements, please consult with your doctor.
