Thank you for your patience

The information below will give you an idea of what to expect in my classes when I return to good health

We (myself and regulars students) found it is easier for me to offer a fuller teaching experience without compromising on my 'stickler' to build confidence in each student, The information below will let you know what to expect from my classes when I return and if you subscribe for updates, I will contact you via email to let you know about classes or workshops.
