Don did an exceptional job of accommodating everyone and our busy schedules and we certainly got all of our contact hours. We managed to teach and work with bodies of all types and had plenty of opportunities to practice teaching to beginners as well as local sporting groups. Don taught us meditation techniques in addition to yoga fundamentals and teaching techniques including chair yoga, pre natal, restorative and yoga nidra which was confronting & awkward at first but once we found our own unique way to relate and express through words it was really interesting and gave an insight into the teacher. Thanks Don for an awesome experience and for doing anything and everything you could to help us all get through it, you went above and beyond, THANKS...
