2) Why is there a class on learning how to breathe correctly? 
    • Breathing is the very first thing an animal does upon being born. It’s the very act that sustains life on this planet. For various reasons, after some time and depending on circumstances, the breathing pattern and/or expression is compromised and directly impacts one’s overall health -from sitting, to standing, to walking, to climbing (stairs), to resting and digesting, to thinking critically, to experiencing an equanimous inner-environment, to one’s capacity to efficiently relate towards themselves and others, and ultimately supporting the body’s foundational functions in the most efficient capacity.

That said, I do not specialize in movement practices tailored towards populations with severe structural impairments where the use of a walker, cane or wheelchair is needed.

7) How do the class passes work (for livestream classes/sessions)?
    • A single class pass typically lasts for 2 weeks from the start of the purchase date and expires by the end of the two week period. Classes must be scheduled within the allotted time before your pass expires. The expiration for passes are highlighted on your receipt.

    • If after you’ve signed up for a livestream class, and you don’t show up to class, then a refund is not allowed. If after you’ve signed up for livestream classes, and you’ve submitted an email to info@askjasiri.com 24 hours prior to the start of class time that you will not be able to make the class, then you will be allowed to reschedule. No refunds will be issued out. 
9) How are payments processed for private and/or corporate groups?
