“Just a little over a year ago we met and you trained me in a modality that has been nothing but a benefit to me and others.”
“I loved all of the fascia techniques and Chula was very organized.”
“I like that Chula showed us the proper techniques and then allowed us to modify them to our specific style”
“Chula is one of the best teachers I have ever had. This structural work is difficult for me but she made it much easier, was very patient and clear and very easy to pay attention to. Her enthusiasm for the subject was contagious”
“I really appreciate the book and all of the reference material that was provided”
“Chula’s class gave me a well rounded understanding of prenatal massage and postnatal care. Her teaching style is organized, focused, and kind. She will wait until every last person is on the same page before moving on. I will continue to take every class she offers and encourage fellow body workers to do the same!”
“ I walked out of her workshop feeling so much more confident in my massage offerings. Especially with prenatal massage.”“Loved taking this class and all I learned. I walked out with the knowledge and confidence to call myself a bodyworker. I can’t wait to get back home and start marketing all my new skills and reaching out to the prenatal women of Kauai.”“What a magical course (retreat) experience! This was EXACTLY the course I was looking for retreat, prenatal, and more all-in-one. I would have never even expected the depth of knowledge I left with and kept! The learning model is incredible and the energy is very naturally easy to learn in!”
