The only exception is “An Evening with the Salimpours” on Monday, May 20 at the Salimpour Studio, 425 San Pablo Avenue, Albany, CA 94706

We have 63 teachers this year and 88 different offerings, not counting Kajira’s Teacher Training or the Salimpour evening class! Most workshops are “festival style”: 2 hours long. We have 3, 4 and 6 hour options as well. Some of these are held in one day and others are spread out over 2 or 3 days.

Be Sure to Read the class descriptions, teacher bios and other important info under Detailed Class Descriptions on this site for complete information. To avoid overlapping classes, please double-and-triple check all your class choices’ days and times before signing up!

Some outdoor classes will be held at the back of the Main Hall due to the smooth concrete footing, while other instructors may choose to meet you there (be on time!) and go to another place nearby.

The Youth Annex Building is next to the Main Hall.
