Our students are our prime focus.  Each class syllabus has been developed to challenge each student and encourages them to achieve their personal best using positive teaching techniques with emphasis placed on correct body alignment, terminology and proper execution of positions, exercises and steps.  We pride ourselves in our high standards of teaching for every level offered, allowing each student the opportunity to learn and grow at their own pace while developing poise, grace and confidence.
