“The class I attended with my sister, brother, daughter and niece was a highlight of my Rangeley week. We all loved it! Everyone had very specific positive comments about how they felt afterwards.
My brother felt taller and… stood up straighter in his 6’5” frame! My sister’s troublesome hip and ankle were greatly relieved of discomfort. My niece said she was breathing easier. My daughter reported feeling ‘more alive!’ I appreciated feeling more connected with my authentic self, always a challenge in the midst of family time.
