South Africa 2021


All 2021 courses will be held in Cape Town



South Africa is my favorite place to teach!  I am excited to return this year!  I am closely following the Covid-19 situation in South Africa and communicating frequently with health experts in SA.  

We will be following a Covid-19 safety protocol.  You will receive details prior to your course.

August 30 will be one week prior to the Early Bird Deadline for the first course.  At that time a decision will be made regarding the courses in SA this year. 

This is when you will receive confirmation regarding all courses.
