OUR INSTRUCTORS

Our instructors come from many different backgrounds and skill-sets. While our main staff strives to lead most of our classes, occasionally we have other instructors come in to assist or lead classes on either a part-time or contract basis.

 

We have featured some of our most familiar instructors below but this is definitely not a complete list.
