I thought Tabitha was a great teacher, clear instruction, variety of moves, gentle enthusiasm & as a beginner I felt safe i.e. she would notice something if I was finding something difficult and suggest how I can adapt.  Environment was also good, warm & lots of equipment provided.Very good instruction and friendly, patient instructor.

I feel more aware of my posture and protecting my back, which is very helpful because I get back problems. I also feel like I have made a small start at doing some exercise! Florence

“The body and the brain are completely interdependent. When skilfully working the muscles combined with oxygenating the body with the breath and further linking the conscious to the subconscious mind one is truly working within the realms of Contrology, leading to physical and spiritual harmony.”
