Everyone has different ways of coping with stress. Some people like to go to the gym and let their rage out through a good workout. Others light candles, take a bath, and listen to some music. Some like to curse up a storm and scream. Others like to drink until they forgot why they were stressed in the first place. Everyone’s different—so, that’s why we need to cater to everyone’s needs at once, not just some.

We actually take beer breaks during the class. It’s definitely not for everybody and that’s totally OK… I also don’t recommend bringing your children.
