I've taken workshops hosted by Sashi before though I've never actually learned from her. It's going to be kind of a big commitment quitting my current class and investing extra driving time and money into another class session. I was hoping to drop in on one of Sashi's classes, and I was also hoping they were ongoing. Alas, she doesn't offer drop-ins and all of her classes are consecutive. Meaning if I purchase 6 classes and can't attend one then I'm S.O.L. In order to determine weather or not I can handle the drive and if the class material is appropriate for me, it looks like I'm going to have to put down the $60 for 6 classes and commit to driving to Orange County every Sunday night.
I've pretty much decided that I want to do it, and I'm also pretty sure that it'll be worth my while. But there is always that nagging suspicion that I might be missing out on a more convenient and equally rewarding opportunity with a local teacher I don't know about yet, or that if I make the time/money investment I might just not get along with the teacher or something terrible could happen and the sky could come crashing down. I might just be in need of some assurance or maybe some suggestions on other teachers to keep in mind if I can't handle the drive.
