‘such a different approach . putting no strain on the body and allowing the process to come from within . the being slow allows you to find your centre and where it comes from . its gorgeous . the way you explain it. you are able to find it for your self, with your guidance. you’re not relying on just copying someone else’
— Aishling , student on retreat
