Our instructor led the class professionally and gave different posture options to accommodate different ability levels. The energy in the room was good and the class flowed nicely. During the class, our instructor walked around and corrected participants individually, showing positive energy by smiling and making eye contact.

The class finished 10 minutes after the scheduled time. After the class was wrapped up, however, the coach made a further effort to connect, rounding off an overall positive experience.
