Hear from our Members


The Zoom classes have worked out very well. I am a semi social media-friendly user, and found picking up the Zoom easy. Certainly in-person classes are always the best, but the Zoom is a great alternative.

I love virtual classes. My back loves virtual classes. And my ears love virtual classes because I can hear every word of the conversation. Crazily I now prefer them to real life classes.

There are both advantages and disadvantages to the model. Miss the ease of personal communication but can participate from many locations. And no traffic hassles!

All my Zoom classes have worked very well. Particularly with the smaller classes, I think you actually get better participation in class discussion using zoom than you do with in person classes.
