Charlotte D. It might be good to have some kind of rotation system to learn one technique at each station. Now I had the impression I missed out on some because all of the trainers had their own experience and focus, and unfortunately I didn't get the chance to perform all of the techniques. It was a really great experience though, it ended way too soon!
