“I really really enjoyed this course and am excited by the new possibilities for growth that I have access to as a result of having taken this journey with you. Thank YOU for sharing your gifts and holding the space for me to learn and explore.”

“I enjoyed the relaxed but thorough teaching style Margarita has, and the class was not too big either which made it more intermediate.”
