"I would absolutely recommend taking these courses. I learned a lot of useful tips to get into headstands that I would have considered before, and have greatly improved in just a short couple weeks. What made this course special was the fact you could contact the coach at any time with questions and she was very helpful in answering them."
Rebecca Vargas

She is creative in her methods so it’s never boring, whilst still maintaining the focus and learning. She put together a really clear set of videos and instructions to lay a clean and strong foundation for a long term inversion journey I recommend her courses 100%!" 
Juliana Gonçalves 

"The course is easy to follow, you can do it on your own time but still feel connected to a community that can help you as you progress.
