Lauren Shroyer was a good presenter! Loved the lecture, Wish i had the powerpoint

I love her way of teaching. She is devoid of complications and full of ease, compassion, knowledge and fun. Great model of execution. Thank you so much.

Very good information but a printout would have been helpful and a link to the exercises that are recommended. Very worthwhile course.
