This Yoga Pilates mix course is truly an amazing experience. The tutor has over 15 years experience as a Yoga and Pilates teacher. She is very thorough in her teachings and will always make sure the students are doing the postures correctly by checking. After a stressful day in the office there is nothing like a good Yoga and Pilates session to fully relax and calm the body. I would recommend this course to anyone who is looking to calm their body and mind its definitely worthwhile!
