Let's answer your questions

Absolutely no prior knowledge required! Come as you are. Paul and Denys will introduce you to new vocabulary and concepts in simple terms that are understandable by all.

It is better if you have a flex band, a small ball and a yoga block. If you do not already have them, consider the investment. These three items are inexpensive and can make a huge difference in your training.

All the exercises practiced during the Workshop can be safely done at home. As a matter of fact, Paul will run the workshop from his home studio.

I will teach you to be a jumper!
