Instructor Testimonial: I was blown away! Lori is an...
“Thank you so much for the privilege of being able to have one the best experiences of my life. Besides all of the amazing information, it was just so wonderful to experience Lori as an instructor. It was my first time having someone else other than Suzanne, and I have to say I was blown away! Lori is an amazing gift to the HFC community, and a real gem as a person and instructor. She has a way of making the information so easy and attainable. There was a part of me when looking for classes that was like, ‘No way! I am only taking classes from Suzanne!’ But I no longer feel that way. You have certainly prepared your instructors!
Lori handled all questions with such ease and openness. She truly modeled what it means to be present. I can’t even imagine all that she is going through with her dad, but I feel really blessed to have experienced what being grounded through adversity means. I learned so much just by her modeling presence. It is such a testament to all the work that she has done. She showed me my next few steps.”
