Some feedback from our 2018 particpants:

I was very satisfied with the course and particularly being able to apply the EBAS principles in class on a daily basis. The class format was relatively basic but that enabled focus on the technique and I felt stronger, injury-free and energised at the week’s end.
Really enjoyed it. Something residential would have been better if possible. It all went very smoothly. Well done May for organising such a great course.
I liked having the opportunity to participate in part of the course, allowing me to benefit from the classes on my own terms. I found the level to be right for me throughout the week. I thought it was great to have a much slower day.
