“there is a lot of love and respect”

My overall reaction to our class experience is that it is wonderful. Dakota is a fantastic leader, and a great teacher. What really stands out for me is that she cares about every person there. She’s on top of everything and nothing happens by accident. For example, I have some difficulty walking. Dakota has never left me in a position to worry, or for another to be concerned about how I’m doing. Without my knowledge, she has often tasked another of the staff to work with me–and to catch me when I trip. She always takes care to support me when I am exerting myself in boxing with her.
Everybody in the class is on the same page. That concern for the well-being of everyone is mirrored in how we all work together. It is pretty amazing when you think about it. As a consequence, we all share in the camaraderie that results.
The long and short of it is that there is a lot of love and respect in that room. I am honored to be a participant in the magic of it all. Thank you all.
