Good beginner class
10 February 2021Beginner Wheel Course - 4 weeks - Friday morning
I have done many classes in many other places in Melbourne and I can say this time I felt completely calm. The studio is beautiful and we have some rainy days which makes the experience even better. But to be honest and it's going to sound silly but where I found it calmer is when they never rush you at the end. I have been finding in other places that whenever is 15 min left to the class they rush you to finish and clean the whole thing. With Sarah, the rush was never a problem, obviously, we were conscious of the time, but everything was very seamless and thats something that even if silly was very important.
