Recent testimonials from the Handsprings Course
” Thank you so much Tracey! You’re a brilliant instructor! Doing this workshop with you was such an honour! 😚 And thank you to all the ladies who were doing the workshop as well. You were all amazing and so supportive!” Laila from Johannesburg, June 2016.
“Thank you so much for Saturday! I love your teaching style and the environment was encouraging, fun & friendly. I must say I was blown away by your course material, comprehensive, clear and so easy to follow . Most courses don’t have the ongoing support which makes it difficult to benefit long term (especially if you don’t get a move first time) but I would say your courses are great value for money because of the material”. Jill from Johannesburg, June 2016.
