    Would it be possible to have these classes at the Whole Foods near me? (on Arroyo Pkwy This location is off of the end of the 110 freeway going north into South Pasadena) I would love to attend but that 3rd street Whole Foods is quite a distance from here.

      What you should do is look at the Events Calendar (online or in the store) for the Whole Foods Markets close to you and see what classes they offer. You might also want to contact the person in charge of classes at a particular store and make suggestions to that person. Here is the online events calendar to the Whole Foods Market in Pasadena on Arroyo Pkwy: http://wholefoodsmark...­
