Learn how you can be the first, first responder for your clients.

Have you ever wondered what you would do if your client had a health emergency during one of your sessions or classes?


Or maybe this has already happened to you, and you wish you'd known how to help outside of calling 9-1-1 and waiting for EMS to arrive.

If so, this 4-hour course will teach you the skills you need to know to best respond to medical emergencies that may arise in your practice, gym, or studio. This American Red Cross Training Course will cover how to execute proper CPR and utilize an AED as well as how to respond to sudden illnesses like strokes and seizures. 

We all hope that we would never encounter emergencies such as this in our practices, but they can happen at anytime! This class will help you feel prepared, so that you know the best way to help your clients when they're in need.

Can I still get certified if I'm late or can only attend part of the workshop?

No. I cannot issue a certificate of completion for the workshop unless you're on time and are present for the full day. For example, I cannot offer 2 hours of credit if you can only attend for 2 hours. 


What is the cancellation policy?

There will be no refunds within two weeks of the scheduled workshop, only credit toward future workshops.

If cancelled before the two-week window prior to the class, a $50 cancellation fee will be applied. Processing of a participant’s refund will occur within 7-10 business days from the day the request is received.

Where will this workshop be held?

This workshop will be held at Bodhi Panya Institute on 2nd Street in the SOMA District of San Francisco, CA. 480 2nd St Ste 200, San Francisco, CA 94107. You will need to ring the buzzer to the left of the entrance to be let into the school or text me (I will share my phone number with enrolled students the day before the class).

What should I wear?

Please wear clothes that you can comfortably move around in. Jeans are ok as long as you can easily kneel in them to demonstrate CPR. Please do not wear low-cut shirts, dresses, or skirts. 

What will I need to bring?

I will provide all necessary equipment for the training (AEDs & Manikins).

Before the course begins you will be given a code to access your e-manual for the course. You cannot print this manual out. If you prefer to have a printed manual, you must purchase it ahead of time from the Red Cross here. You may also want to bring a pen and paper to take notes. ​

What about lunch?

Because this is such a short class, we'll only take a 30-minute lunch break from 12-12:30. Please bring something to snack on. The school has a microwave and a small kitchen for your use if you want to warm something up to eat. Please also bring water or something to drink for the day.

How do I get to the school?

Public Transportation

  • The school is located just a few blocks from both Cal Train and Market St, so there are many ways to access the school via public transportation.


  • There are parking garages close by and you can venture for street parking as well, but it is 1 and 2-hr parking only. We will have a 10-minute break every hour and lunch from 12-12:30 and you could move your car then.

I look forward to seeing you at this workshop! If you have any questions, please email me at
