What Lopa’s students have to say:
"The joy you manifest in your class helps me feel connected to something supportive, balancing and essential - for me, the class atmosphere goes well beyond instruction on physical movements. I experience a positive space/occasion for striving within my ability which insulates me against setbacks of performance failure. I feel I can bring desire and interest - and check aptitude/talent anxiety at the door." – Megan
