Sherry I cannot express to you how much my report card means to me. Last week was an exceptionally challenging week for me (we all have those!). So, receiving your assessment of my TeachBack came at just the right time. I admire you so very much, and the positive feedback I received from you, was a balm to my soul. I want to be the Yoga Instructor who makes you proud, and is representative of the Yoga Vista Academy’s excellence.

“10 Fabulous format – I too was skeptical that it would work, but it did! Wealth of information, presented from a very heartfelt space.”

“10 This was amazing! Kimberley was extremely knowledgeable, appreciated her energy, answering everyone’s questions in an easy manner was huge for me. Incredible!”
