"We really like Ainslee and we're pleased to have the private one on one sessions. Luciana is really getting a good workout. Ainslee is encouraging and it's obvious to me that they are both enjoying the experience. Ainslee's method of teaching is good for Luciana with clear instructions and suggestions for improvement. We always look forward to the sessions. "
