I have gotten enormous contributions to my health, fitness, and overall well-being. I have wanted to continue in large part because of the two instructors. They were so compatible. They are both extremely competent, knowledgeable, but also empathetic and sensitive. The Center for Wellness has a good range of program types and personalities to lead them.
