Our classes, were created by Shyla & Dan Bare, who have traveled around-the-world for seven years. They have explored seventy-four countries on six continents.

Classes are taught in-person at local venues in the Pacific Northwest, including Portland Community College, Bellevue College, and Multnomah Athletic Club. If you can’t make it to a class don’t worry. They are also offered as video classes where you can take them when and where you want.
