If you have attended one of the beginners classes and want to learn more then you have a few options to choose from.
These classes run at the Arienas Collective, 2 Dublin Meuse, Edinburgh, EH3 6NW. We are very centrally located a short walk from Waverley station and St Andrews Square tram stop.
As these are more advanced classes they run a few times a year. I have ensured that we have weekend and weekday options.
The prices for these classes will be increasing in 2020. I have not put my prices up in three years but increased costs means that I will need to soon. However, if you book on now you can pay the current price.
