How to get listed:  send us a note on the contact page or comment below.
How to get unlisted:  word gets out that it ain’t a proper led class.  We don’t list classes that are “inspired” by Ashtanga, intro classes, or anything like that.

(All classes are assumed to be full primary unless otherwise noted.)
(We can’t account for teachers who aren’t following the KPJAYI method.  Your best bet is to go to an Authorized or Certified teacher listed at KPJAYI.)
