Testimonials from H2O+ 

“Thank you all so much for a great day of teaching and learning on Sunday. It was really interesting and lots of strategies and things to consider to implement in practice. The zoom presenting works very well, I know we don’t have an idea of the huge amount of work you have to do in preparation and execution on the day, but from an audience perspective I felt it was excellent.”

Liddy Croft

“Thank you for another successful H2O+ workshop. I must confess that I always feel invigorated and full of enthusiasm for my classes the next day. There was so much to take in and I am looking forward to viewing the replays.”

Bill Stevens

“Thanks again for the H2O+ conference. I always come away from these events feeling inspired. I also really enjoyed the randomness of the breakout rooms and learning from Aqua Instructors across Australia about what inspires them and what concerns they may have. Absolutely loved the varied range of speakers and got great enjoyment of seeing and participating in the evolution of the Aqua cool downs.”
