"I started class with you on Thursday. I loved it - thank you. I was practicing the exercises and was intrigued by the weave prep. Prior to the 1st class I got part of the weave [...] so I started to wonder what the over/underhand thing was about. I got a glimpse of something and then proceeded to bonk myself in the head a couple of times almost breaking my glasses. In other words, I was trying really really hard. Then the most magical thing happened. I took my glasses off. With the world slightly out of focus and a little bit softer - I started to spin the poi and the weave clicked. Oh my God - what an incredible feeling. I started to cry - total release. I share this with you so know the impact you have on the world. And to say thank you."
