I signed up for a free account and accessed some of the free lessons and really liked the quality of video and how clear the instructors were both verbally and in how they instructed. Now learning from a video is somewhat different than learning in person – you can freeze the instructor or rewind him or her on a video when you cannot do that in person! (Unless like me you ask them to do it again! And again…) The instructors showing the moves from different angles helps as well.
I also purchased one of their specials, 5 lessons for $5 through an email promotion and chose some beginner lessons including learning an invert from the floor with Felix Cane and Alethea Austin’s Signature Body Waves. I will be purchasing some of the workshops as well since there is probably so much material in just one to keep me busy for a while!
The great thing about learning online is that the material is there for you to digest and learn at your own pace.
