    I am a special education teacher in Calgary and am very interested in the Yoga for Special needs training program. Unfortunately, I will not be able to attend, as we are visiting family in Ottawa and have our flights already booked. Will this be offered again soon in Edmonton or Calgary or area?

    Please let me know.
    Thank you!
