Ann Buice
Recently completed the Green Belt program with Edwel and instructor Richard Perrin. It was wonderful. The class was just the right pace and Mr. Perrin was able to keep the class moving but took the time to assist with concepts and making sure everyone was engaged. I would highly recommend this class with Edwel and Mr. Perrin.
