If you cannot make those particular Bali times, please make use of the recorded sessions. The Pranayama classes will follow a particular order, so all students should watch and practice them in sequence - for example, you should not do class 3 without having done classes 1 and 2.
Check the class description on passion.do to find the exact class description for the specific sequence being taught.

Students who are new to VKM will be encouraged to first learn the main foundation practices, commit them to memory, including the associated Pranayama. As time goes on, each students will be encouraged to deviate from the standard sequence, with my input. Students who require a therapeutic approach will be encouraged to do only 50% of each sequence, again with variations to help any condition.
Experienced students will be invited into private zoom sessions prior to some classes to start learning the intermediate sequencing and intermediate pranayama.
These three six--week courses will also allow unlimited access to all recorded classes with VKM Online, and free access to any weekend workshops I am conducting.
For example, during April, there is a workshop through Austria, 3 April at 5pm Bali time - on Headstand, Forearm Balance and Handstand. Another workshop through France - Salute to the Sun, Jumps & Breathing, on 10 April, and another workshop on the same subject on 24th April through Bangkok. All these would be free.
The fee for each course will be $400 AUD.
(approx $22 per class, 3x per week, min 18 classes)
Course fees will be non-refundable. Once paid, it will be your responsibility to attend all classes. However, for led classes, if you miss a session you can do the recorded classes instead (at no extra charge). You can also do recorded led classes as often as you like in between sessions. For self- practice classes that won’t be possible. It will also be possible to transfer between courses for individual classes - but you will need to write to me approx 24 hours in advance for the link for each class if you need to transfer.
All times above are from Denpasar, Bali.
So make sure you look that up before booking a class. You can join any class from any location.
Students who cannot make the casual class times, or make the commitment for the online intensive can also make use of the recorded classes - covering all the great sequencing and pranayama. You can also look out for specialty workshops - go to the FB page to find the dates for those, listed under the main announcement pinned to the top of the page.
There are a few main rules for attending these classes:
1. Please make a commitment to self-practice each sequences at home in between classes - approx 2x per week per sequence (or depending which sequence you're currently learning.)
2. In order to remain a member on the FB page you must attend at least one class per month (asana or pranayama, or recorded). Alternatively you need to write me a private email and explain why you cannot attend, and why you should remain a member on the page.
3. Do not not teach any of these sequences to anyone unless you have my approval. This includes the unique salutes or any main sections from each sequence.
4. Do not not record these classes (audio or video.)
All classes will be 2 hours (or 2.15) and 5-10 minutes for Q&A at the end, so please be prepared for that length of time.
The fee for classes:
$20 AUD per casual class
I recommend buying the new VKM eBook:
You have my permission to print one copy for yourself, so you can have handy cheat sheets. I would also suggest that you take notes when you're learning the sequence, and write down any questions, so you can ask these at the end of any online class. The book will also give you great background on what each sequence is about, what the Pranayama is for, and how to integrate it all.
