I really enjoyed the course and found the content fascinating and well presented. There is a lot to learn on this course and at first I was wondering how I would learn it all. But the method of teaching Valentina has developed is highly effective. The days are split into watching and learning new sequences, and putting into practice what we learn. There is so much variety and “doing’ to keep engaged and enthusiastic every day. The manual Valentina has developed is very thorough was invaluable to me, as someone who is terrible at making (readable) notes.
Valentina’s teaching style was ideal for me. She is passionate and direct, yet patient and understanding. She clearly has a lot of experience teaching complete beginners and had helpful advice for every potential stumbling block and situation. I found her communication style to be completely clear and logical and I loved how open to feedback and new ideas she is. Our group felt like a little family and we had a lot of laughter and fun. I sometimes had work issues I had to attend to and Valentina was very flexible and understanding when I had to slip out of a class.
Peter’s quality of touch and core work teachings were excellent- I found so much value and practicality in them.
The setting of the school was very comfortable, and we had full use of a kitchen and very nice facilities. All of us felt very welcome and at home. the area is great- beaches nearby, all the conveniences you need and a great cafe at the end of the road. I highly recommend Valentina and the Byron Bay Thai massage school- you are assured of high quality tuition from a very experienced practitioner, and most probably a lot of laughter and new friends.
