Very enjoyable classes and relaxed environment. Claire is friendly and steps you through the process and assists when necessary. Dirt road and a very steep driveway to walk down to attend class. The studio is at the back of the house. Probably not for people who are concerned about dogs. Dogs are on the property and participants bought dogs also on some occasions.

Absolutely loved these classes. Claire is a wonderful and fun teacher who is patient and helpful. She does a wonderful job at creating a class that is easy going, explanatory and a joy to come to every week. The setting is beautiful and intimate, the small classes are great and she works with everyone at the pace they are going. I loved it so much! I'm definitely coming back. Thank you Claire, this class and the studio are a godsend. Highly recommend. I tried another class in the area and it doesn't hold a candle to hers. Just wonderful :)
