"To me, you're more than just an instructor, you are a mentor. I think about Flowology all the time and it has really, really helped me deal with stuff, just everything."
~ M. Besasie; June, 2007

"I have to say that any progress and willingness to learn and any commitment I've made to myself and to Temple of Poi is completely because of the open, welcoming, friendly environment that you have created that just nurtures my desire to continue learning and to continue being a part of the Temple Of Poi community. Week after week I really am amazed that you have completely cracked the code on teaching such a complex art form, in a way that caters to all sorts of learning styles. So, thank you for being in my life and helping to create this whole new dimension of who I am."
