virtual class gallery

Now offering virtual classes via Facebook live!

These classes are held live in a private facebook group created specifically for the class. Only members of the group can see the videos and participate in group discussions. If you are unable to watch the video live or join the group after the start date you may still watch the video as it saves to the group. That said, you may also rewatch the videos as many times as needed. I am able to provide limited guidance during the class but do offer private one on one help using facebook messenger. 

please find me on Facebook as PJ Svejda
