“I like her as one of the best teachers!”
Swapna, Adult Student
“Victoria pushed me to try something new and taught me new techniques by demonstrating them and then helping me practice them several times. I progressed quite well in the two classes I had with her and learned new breathing techniques as well. I would definitely work with her again. Here biggest strengths are 1) Breaking down steps and demonstrating movements, 2) Providing confidence and re-assuring students, and 3) Encouraging students to try new things and go back to basics to regain confidence in case they panic”

“There was no wasted time, just training. My son loved her! She was doing all the right things in training the children. Today I saw a good trainer who could take the kids to competitions.”
