    It was a very thorough course with a lot of good information that I wouldn't have even thought of. The only complaint was the information was explained so fast I had to keep pausing it and rewinding it to understand exactly what he was saying.

    Very detailed but enjoyable presentation. These are the details that can make a huge difference for retention and effectiveness. I think some additional emphasis should be placed on the group interaction aspect of forming friendships among participants. Maybe encouraging members to learn the name of a new person before class.

    There were some additional insights. The layout versus the numbering of tips was a bit confusing. Regarding the introduction, I expected two very clearly different sections: Instructor Tips (5) and Instructor Interaction with Participants Tips (5). When Lawrence continued with #6, 7, etc., I realized he just kept going. The Yoga course I completed with Jessica Matthews was more clearly laid out. Is there a pdf of the first slide? An overall helpful and practical course.

    Wonderfully concise and charming throughout! As an ACE GFI I do notice the training variances as there are many and am honored to be a part of a quantifiable organization.
