“This course changed my life completely. It made me become very confident and helped me feel in control of my life again for the first time since what happened to me. My instructor was so supportive and made us all feel comfortable! As well, every woman taking the course, they became like a group of close friends. This course truly changes lives, makes women feel strong again, and helps so much to feel comfortable in our own skin. Thank you so much for everything.”
