As a response to worldwide restrictions on in-person gatherings and international travel, the Emotional Body team of instructors designed the first comprehensive online training series of courses and offered them in July 2020. We quickly learned that there was not only great interest in this type of course delivery, but that we could deliver our curriculum quite successfully and beneficially through online instructional platforms.  

While keeping our enrollment limits low to ensure quality of instructor-student ratio and care, our courses are tending to fill fast and develop waitlists. With this in mind, and with more emails arriving weekly asking when our next online course will be scheduled, we have designed another series of online courses for the winter months of 2020/2021. 

The course information is provided below. If interested, fill out the pre-registration form link provided here. If any of the courses have filled, we will start a waitlist based on this pre-registration form.
