    I could not attend the class and there was no refund policy Given it’s an expensive class, I feel bad having to loose money.

    It would be great if the instructor went through the steps a second time and also wrote it somewhere so we could easily see it while working on the wheel. It was hard to remember the steps and what the function of each step was. This would make the class more helpful. Otherwise the class and space was wonderful and I enjoyed working and meditating on the wheel.

    Class was too large for instructor to handle. Lack of follow up after initial instructions. Discouraging experience for anyone who actually has an interest in learning this skill. Would not recommend this.
