Awesome holistic experience! – for mind, body & soul.

Doing the intro course for the 2nd time, I feel more confident in my touch… it’s good layering the knowledge and practice, plus I learned new stuff too! I think more things resonated with me the second time around, it’s given me a deeper understanding.

Also, I appreciate and notice the different seasonal approaches – it makes me curious for the (other) courses..
