Hey Louise, I just wanted to say how much we enjoyed your workshop on Saturday. Lovely environment and energy in your class. I felt like I was in a private class tuning into your teaching but in the comfortable surroundings of a warm class atmosphere. I took away plenty to ponder, but also practical breathing exercises I can build into my daily routine. Been practicing my opening wings today and it lifts everything so thanks, you’re a wonderful teacher!
