Wish I could give this class more than 5 stars... Donna is a highly knowledgeable, kind and encouraging teacher. This is a challenging class that covers a huge amount of head to toe flexibility, conditioning and strength work. I really enjoy these classes and I trust Donna completely, not easy to find a good flex or handstand class online but would hugely recommend this class as a great example of remote teaching, delivered in a safe and well thought out manner by a lovely teacher who really knows her stuff
