YSS Testimonials

The primary reason your business survives is because you are good at teaching, good with people, good at listening to what student’s body parts need help and immediately coming up with moves to help, good at not pushing but helping us to accept and work with our body’s limitations, etc. etc. It’s because of how you teach and who you are that makes it easy to refer people to your classes. ~ Ann
