As a general rule it's best to wear comfortable, loose fitting clothing that allows you to move freely. For most exercise classes such as yoga you will be lying on the floor and you must bring a yoga mat or towel to lie on. For massage classes you need to wear a swimsuit under your clothes. For ballroom dancing leather soled shoes are preferred but many dance and exercise classes are undertaken in bare feet.

Each term runs for 9 weeks however many courses are held over 8 weeks and others run for 4 weeks or as one-day workshops. There are 4 terms per year and most courses are repeated each term.
Is there a computer for everybody in a computer class?
Every student attending has a computer to work on therefore the computer classes are limited to 10 students.
Are the cooking courses demonstration or hands on?
The cooking classes are hands on and all students participate in preparing the recipes. Bring a container for leftovers.
How do I request a tax invoice for my course?
A Tax Invoice and confirmation will be emailed to you on enrolment. Please enter your email address clearly.
