What is the time commitment?

Each module is around 30mins of video coaching. Your practice time is up to you and it really depends on what works for your lifestyle. You can keep your practice short and sweet or leisurely and long. Think of it as time you are taking for yourself to invest in your well-being. You also have lifetime access to the lessons so you can review them as you please.

Am I too old to participate?

No way! This course has been designed for adult women in mind so this is for you. However anyone can participate.

Why is the price $249?

The price takes into consideration you will have access to the equivalent of 6 private lessons with me and 12 group coaching calls. The cost of a private lesson is around $70 and $30 for a group lesson, so already we are at a value of around $780 and you will have access to additional coaching via email or the Facebook group. So because of the magic of the internet, I am able to coach multiple members at once meaning the rates I charged can be less, providing you with great value for money in supporting you to achieve your skate well-being goals.

Can I get a refund?

 Yes, we have a money back guarantee for the first two weeks of the course. If you find it is not for you get in touch and we will organise the refund.
