I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE my private lessons here! You are getting the bang for your buck and sooooo much more. I’ve taken classes at the MOST popular places in the city and NO ONE, and I mean NO ONE stacks up to the knowledge and understand of the way the body works like Mayambo! This is the best kept secret in the city (well not anymore because I just told you)!
