Amazing course!

Love the real world application vs 'ideal' situation. Great course

Great content

I've taken Calin Pop and I love how you stressed to do what works for you / in your hands. It's great to learn and take what you think will work for you without judgement!

Great for beginners like myself!

It was very helpful overall, but I found myself skimming a lot of portions because either I couldn't see his hand gestures or had no idea what he was talking about until he showed the model.
