"It's hard to put into words, but his approach feels more "real" than a lot of teachers I've had. He empowered me to rely on and trust my instincts, see the big picture of my emotions and real life. He simplified and demystified the process to make it feel more fun and way less intimidating. And I also ended up making a team from our practice, so that's cool too."
