“My shoulders felt more connected to my spine and my spine felt more dynamic in itself. I did a 6 mile run after and it was smooth and easy, lovely to take my spine for a run with so much from your lesson to mull over as I ran.” — Tim
“I most appreciate the improvements I felt after each class, and some lingering benefits, too. One major thing was a more upright, balanced posture and feeling more firm on my feet when standing. What I also love is your friendly, funny, interesting conversation throughout! Your comments keep me interested and thinking” —Mitzi L
