"This experience was phenomenal. A real professional who will make you feel safe during the process!"

"Vixen is an AMAZING instructor and didn’t give up on me when I couldn’t get the technique right the first few times. She made me feel like I was capable of anything and was genuinely interested in hearing my reasons for taking the class. She actually worked that into the lesson, turning it into a moment of triumph for me over a lot of fears and doubts I’ve been facing lately. Can’t recommend this class more."

"Vixen is funny and witty and extremely professional. She makes you feel extremely comfortable and confident. I started the night certain I wouldn't go through with it.. But she didn't pressure anyone. At our own pace we found out how far we'd go. By the end...I ATE FIRE. My new motto is "I ate fire...I can do anything!" Facing fears and having a blast.. an exceptional experience I highly recommend!"
