I love the way that you confidently lead students to find their edge & support them in feeling into each pose and circumstance. Your cueing is specific and intelligent, and really addresses alignment possibilities within each person's body. You are a compassionate and patient teacher with each student's success at the forefront of your offerings. Thanks for always bringing your "A" game.
