"Very Supportive Reflexology Instructor" I took the foot reflexology class with Calynda. I was very nervous about taking this class. She was very understanding and nurturing. The course itself was very well put together, chapter review tests helped me a lot as well as all the visual information including videos and pictures. I really enjoyed the hands on part of the class and all the tips and extra information that was provided. Calynda was there to answer any and all questions anytime even outside of class time and she also made an effort to get to know all of us. It really helped feeling like someone was behind me 110%. I can't wait to do the hand and ear courses.

"Passionate and Encouraging Teacher" - Dana S. I really enjoyed the course. There was a lot to cover, but the material was organized in a good manner so it was easy to follow. Chapters were in good order so transition from one chapter to chapter was easy. I liked that each chapter was followed by a test review as it kept me on track. Being a visual learner, I found the videos very helpful. I really appreciate the fact that you took the time to get to get to know us so you can adapt your teaching style in the way that benefited us as students. I found that approach to teaching us was very supportive and encouraging. Your passion and knowledge about the topic was contagious. I am glad that I took the course. I would do it all over again.
