The Spring 2020 MBSR class has been cancelled at this time.

Given the current public health official's recommendations to avoid close, crowded spaces we feel it is the prudent thing to do to cancel classes for the next few weeks.

We appreciate your interest in Upstream classes and we hope that you will check back with us in a few weeks to see when the next class series will begin.

Feel free to e-mail us at or call Jemme at (803)960-7737. Thank you and please accept our wishes for your good health.

Be well, Jemme and Hilda
