    Oh, YES! The two-way FROM a strong center! Wonderfully consistent ‘finding it’ while not forgetting the middle. Took me days to get thru all there is to test out in this great TC. Thank you Sandy and Nicole.

    I love this one! Sandy I’m always in awe of the way you’re able to see and help each body find what it needs–you have such a special way about you! You’re intuitive, calming yet firm, you’re always spot on and I’ve learned so much from you. Thank you Sandy and thank you Nicole for filming this wonderful workshop on the two-way stretch!
