“I enjoyed the ability to ask questions at any time. I felt it was great for discussions and allowed others to share their point of view. I thought the handouts were well done and informative. I enjoyed the experiential side of it, because I am a mover and really wanted to explore the yoga poses as if I was a child.”

— Natalie Bargholz

“I thought the materials were wonderful and the instruction right on.”
