“Dear Marsha – Just a few words to describe what a great session we all had at the Saturday workshop. I said all since everyone I saw was involved, irrespective of their level of knowledge. It was enjoyable and exhilarating and I look forward to the next one”. J.H.

“Thank you Marsha and David for another wonderful workshop – these workshops give me the incentive to practice more every day. We study the moves in detail and learn how each move affects a certain part of the body energizing us and helping us get the most out of our day and also enhancing our wellbeing! I would certainly recommend these workshops to everyone!” M.S.
