What our students have to say…

“Fantastic class – after a year out of practice I found it challenging but Dawn was very encouraging and supportive. I found myself completely absorbed and connected in practice. Fully recommend this class for a holistic experience.”

“My first ever Barre class and I absolutely loved it! I went alone and was made to feel so welcome by Louise and the rest of the group. It was challenging but really fun at the same time. I will definitely be back!” Danielle

“The Self Centre has helped me, as a person with a life shortening condition, find a place and time to be active,mindful and social through regularly attending Qi Gong. I feel known, supported and able to be fully myself. I very much look forward to going each week.”
