When I joined the Chilled academy I was made to feel very welcome and was supported every step of the way. I felt very much outside of my comfort zone when I started, but with the help and commitment I received from my instructor, Charles Bailey, I was able to settle into the role. Charles was very patient and extremely helpful and gave me the confidence and skills required to teach others. It wasn't an easy journey for me, but with the help and support I received from Charles, Alan and the rest of the team I was able to achieve what was necessary to become an instructor. I cannot thank everyone involved enough, and the support from everyone still continues today.
