‘My first term was wonderful. Like most girls, I’ve had body confidence issues for ever, never skinny enough, boobs too small…bum too big…you name it. It’s so fantastic to see all shapes and sizes celebrated and proud of their femininity. Thanks for creating a supportive environment.’ Fleur Tayshus

‘I have spent years struggling, never being happy with the way I look or people’s ‘perception’ of me. I am now starting to appreciate myself and I am looking more often at the positive side to not just my body and personality but in every day situations. ‘ Kittie Fatale

“These classes and your philosophy of teaching are transforming people into better human beings and bringing sparkle into the world.” – Domino de Jour, Student now Teacher
