What Students Say:
"I gained SO MUCH wisdom around anatomy and its possible limitations, and I gained strength—mental and physical. I gained more insight into how my own body works, how it speaks to me, how I treat it, and I also learned more about the way I regulate my own emotions and thoughts. The way you teach is very relatable, and you have the talent to explain things in a tangible way.”

Course attendees will discover incredible resolve, power, and potential within themselves. Dhugal's trainings are designed to open the door to an aspect of yourself you may not have met, or even be aware of.
