“After finishing our Thursday night sessions… I have become more flexible and have strengthened my problem areas. You have taught me how to let go the stress of the day through deep breathing and meditation. I love feeling grounded and peaceful when I am finished the class. The night of our class is one of my best sleeps of the week.”
