“I learned more from this workshop and instructor than I have any other instructor. Sara was extremely detailed and educated on proper alignment and able to show me what I was missing and how to properly correct to get the most out of every exercise.”

“Sara was one of the best instructors in a teacher training I have ever had. She was professional, kind, and knowledgeable. She had an answer for every question we had, and could demonstrate on each of us. Thank you for the experience!”

“The instructor, Sara Felt, was very knowledgeable and confident. She paced the course well (even though we all seemed to be at different levels of knowledge) and provided positive, constructive feedback when appropriate. Overall, I thought the instructor and material were excellent.”
