Great relaxing Sunday class. Enjoyed it so much the first time I came back for more. Sarah is great with both her instructions and encouragement. Really good set up, and even on a hot Melbourne day we were cool as cucumbers. Love it, and will return a again.

Sarah is amazingly talented and the studio is a wonderful space. Highly recommend tuition from this studio. Even though it is a beginner course I would have liked to have a bit more in the moment constructive feedback and guidance on the execution of the techniques she demonstrated.
