Travel to Roanoke, Texas
The most convenient airport is DFW (Dallas/Fort Worth International) [15 miles from Roanoke] and serves most major airlines.
Please plan to arrive the evening before as class begins promptly at 8:00 am, October 4. Students from overseas are advised to be in Dallas at least 3 days before class to get over jet lag. The Studio will be open by 7:30 am for a light breakfast and warm welcome on the first day. Training ends at 5:00 pm on October 7th. Plan to remain thru the evening of October 7.
For overseas students, please make sure you have travel insurance. Medical care in the USA is extremely expensive.
Try to arrange lodging as near as possible to minimize travel time. Traffic jams are infrequent; but highways traveling west to east are slow every morning. Roanoke is not served by public transportation. There is no local taxi service. We can help coordinate ride sharing if a couple people get rental cars.

If searching for lodging using an internet resource, the local Zip (Postal) Code is 76262. Check with our office if you need further assistance.
The City of Roanoke enjoys the designation of “The Unique Dining Capital of Texas.” Within walking distance from iHealth Center are numerous boutique restaurants serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. Walmart & Aldi are the local supermarkets; though markets and shopping of all types are available within 10-15 miles. You are responsible for all your meals except breakfast on the first day.
Classes are held in the Studio of Harmony (behind iHealth Center). We do not wear shoes inside iHealth Center or the Studio. You are welcome to bring your own socks, use ours or be comfortably barefoot.
Snacks and tea are available through the day. Students are welcome to bring snacks to share.
We have a tradition of bringing a Qi raiser to the class. Every student brings a small, meaningful token as a gift for everyone else in the class. To maintain chi, or energy, sharing occurs at certain times throughout the week. The Qi-raiser should be a token from your heart. You will be informed closer to the meeting time as to how many students are in the class. Please, do not spend much on this; make it more meaningful than expensive. This tradition brings smiles and raises the Qi in the space.
Be aware, tardiness will bear the consequence of treating your classmates to a meal.
