Doug Keller Teacher Training and Weekend Workshop
Tantrik Yoga Tradition with Christopher Hareesh Wallis
Will return August 2019
I was less than enthusiastic when I remembered my wife and I had signed up to take a couples massage workshop. My attitude quickly changed during the workshop with Annie. The entire experience was informative, enjoyable and rejuvenating. Annie’s instruction was clear, and the techniques she demonstrated and taught immediately brought ‘oohs’ and ‘ahhs’ as we practiced on one another. The time flew by. I left with more confidence in my ability to effectively massage my wife as well as a newly relaxed and energized body.
