Inhale: Begin. Exhale: Again.

I am committed to inclusive teaching. This means if class prices are outside your budget, I am always open to instalments or payment via exchange.  This can be a skill swap, an artistic gift, home grown veg, etc. Contact me with your suggestions – I look forward to subverting capitalism with you.

Are there ways this space can be more inclusive? I am always open to suggestions for improvement and growth. You can submit these anonymously below:
