I would ask for my money back if I could. 1/4 of the class left before the end of the day. She went too quickly for some people to teach to the people who got it quickly. As well, there were no handouts/ instructions for her days exercises she we could go back and practice what we learned. she says speak up if she moves too quickly but then she makes you feel dumb and people were embarrassed to put up their hand. There was an assistant who sat mostly in his desk when he could have been waking around helping others. i don't hear verbal instructions well due to my hearing and had no list to follow along with.
