As a group we will gather together for a delicious and healthy meal at a cozy restaurant in Scottsdale. This is a perfect opportunity to get to know each other before the teaching days begin.
Following the dinner, you will be briefed about the course schedule and curriculum and given instructions on how to best prepare for the first teaching day.
We ask that you plan your travels accordingly so that you can attend the welcome dinner. This is an important element of cultivating the group energy. Also, please do arrive to the restaurant on time.

The massage practice sessions in this training are done from the floor on padded massage spaces created from the supplies you will be required to bring with you to the course (i.e. yoga mat and blankets).
It is necessary that you have a good level of physical fitness in order to join this training and be able to participate fully. You should be free from any severe or debilitating injuries that prevent you from kneeling on the floor and massaging your partner for an extended period of time.
Massage sessions will be 1-3 hours in length and the necessary stamina and mobility to sustain this level of physical activity is necessary in order to join. Please keep this in mind before applying.

As of June 12, 2022, air passengers no longer need to get tested and show a negative COVID-19 test result or show documentation of recovery from COVID-19 prior to boarding a flight to the United States regardless of vaccination status or citizenship. Of note, CDC’s Order requiring proof of vaccination for non-citizen nonimmigrants to travel to the United States is still in effect, however. For the most recent Covid conditions and/or restrictions, please refer to this official government website.
A foreign national traveling (non-citizen nonimmigrants) to the United States for tourism needs a visitor visa (B-2) unless qualifying for entry under the Visa Waiver Program. You can refer to this official government website for instructions on how to apply for a B-2 visa. Do ensure that you apply far enough in advance as visa applications can take 4-6 weeks for processing time in some countries.
We also recommend that you double check if any Covid travel restrictions are currently in place for reentry into your home country or the next country you will travel to after the course is completed, as well as any transit countries (i.e. layovers).
