Occasionally you might meet a new teacher in the studio. We have a list of fantastic Sub Teachers who can step in at any time, who know our Positive Balance style, many of whom have taught full time with us before.

Don’t worry if your regular teacher is away, we carefully chose our teaching staff to make sure all of our classes are consistently enjoyable and safe, no matter who is up front!
