"I am gaining new body awareness and am only beginning to gain control of my muscles in isolation. For the first time, I am learning how to remember moves in order... You seem quite aware of what we are not understanding, and the way you explain how to move makes sense. You are able to describe movements with specificity and detail. Your body alignment inspires me." -Hollie H.
