“Even with my 26 years training in Aikido, I am surprised and impressed with the depth of body awareness learning in such a short time. Practical, concrete and operational, I can use the material immediately… Paul’s is a masterful teacher: engaging, challenging, practical, sensitive to the participants (quick to answer a question with an experiential activity), playful and fun.”
