due to injury

Due to a diagnosis of Spinal Stenosis I am cancelling the next few classes. I am unable to spend a lot of time on my feet, bending over or lifting heavy objects. I don't feel right charging people for a class that I cannot fully function while teaching.

GLB Outfitters

We now have an online storefront, the GLB Outfitters. Click on the Outfitters tab above and you will be directed to our store. 

We are currently switching things over from our other online store that was not working out for us. Be patient as we move more items to the storefront.
