“Your workshop brought an unexpected benefit at home. I had fallen into a rut with my wife and was discounting everything she had to say before she even said it. After practicing your yes games and invitation to listen before responding I went home and practiced with my wife. I decided to be curious instead of judgmental. Ever since changing to a yes framework things have been more positive between us. Thank you so much for this new perspective!”
B. C. Improv for Living, March 2019
I guess the universe gives you what you need if you’re open to it. Improv is the last thing I ever saw myself trying but as I’m seeking to get out and connect after my husband died last year I wanted to try something very different. Your class is a safe place to do crazy stuff. While I’ll never be good at Improv I so appreciate your ability to get me out of my shell. Thanks!”
