""I loved the demonstration and hands-on interaction and the openness of the instructors to answer our questions and cater to real life examples. As a teacher, this program gave me the language and physical tools to more confidently assist my students in adjustments and feel confident in my instruction. I found the concept of always adjusting from the ground up essential and loved the reminders to assist firmly, using the palms with confidence.""
