I was pretty nervous coming into the course but Sarah MacLachlanns approach and how she explained things made it more relaxed and easier to learn. The balanced body course was better than I expected” Andrew hogan

I felt Sarah MacLachlann was fantastic her description of the mechanics of the body was extremely helpful in making me understand how and why an exercise works” Bridget Farrell 

I am delighted I chose the balanced body course with Sarah MacLachlann . I extensively researched the courses available and I am confident I made the right choice” Bridget Farrell
