The first lesson went great and though there was a lot to learn, she explained everything and was clear about her expectations.

Ilana is my first instructor, and I can already tell I made the right choice. First lesson, I told her what I felt my biggest weaknesses are, and she immediately began helping me. She was very considerate and emphasized her concern about pushing me too far, but I told her to trust me in return to tell her if I had hit a limit, and I felt very heard in that moment. The sort of open and safe communication she has provided makes me feel at ease during our lessons and thus makes it easier for me to push past any limits I've so far come across. Honestly after each lesson, whenever anything happens in my newly found VA world, the first thing I think is: "I can't wait to tell Ilana!"

Ilana was very informative, friendly, and helpful. It's hard to find someone that truly has these qualities, but Ilana has them and is great. She was very informative on breath control which is a major thing to know. Looking forward to more lessons with Ilana and to continue improving.
