"This is my second online class with the studio and I am loving it! Rachael is wonderful. Very patient, but keeps class moving. If it can't be in person, this is the next best thing. I love that I can work on my own and focus my attention on the class when there is something being taught. I love seeing people from all over and their projects as well."
