"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."

"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."
