Ashwini is an amazing instructor, with small class sizes she's able to focus on each pupil and guide them through the lesson thoroughly. Aside from the physical aspect of yoga she also teaches you breathing techniques and meditation for a bodily 360°. Ashwini is such a kind beautiful soul, whom I love talking to before and after class!
