We are about to begin a new year, and with it comes the start of the next series of classes! So here they are:

The next PATH TO PARENTIING CLASS begins January 7th. It is a 6 week course and will meet once a week on Tuesday nights, at 6:00 PM. The class will be 1 1/2 to 2 hours in duration.  For more information on that class go to Path to Parenting class information (the option of an arranged weekend make up class may be available in special circumstances, if a couple has to miss a class during the series). Please email, or call 615-554-8059 to register. You  may pay your class fee the first day of class or online at The Quiet Spot Square marketplace.

The next group MASSAGE TIPS & TECHNIQUES FOR COUPLES CLASS will be offered on January 18th, at 4:00 PM. For more information on that class, go to Massage Tips & techniques for couples class information. Beginning this year, I will also be offering class series packages, for couples interested in a private class setting with more in-depth instruction on perfecting specific techniques (classes are therapeutic massage instruction, and non-sexual in nature). Please email or call, or call 615-554-8059. Classes may also be purchased online at The Quiet Spot Square marketplace.

Beginning in January, I will also be starting a Doula Apprenticeship program. This is the first group participating, and space if quite limited.  Acceptance into the program will be based in individual interviews. The next Apprenticeship program will be offered beginning in May or June. Please email for more information.
