“We built a very positive thing ... what we are doing has always been good and followed through well, and so we’ve been able to develop that and become a really strong presence here in this community...



“Per week we have approximately 150 to 200 hundred people who pass through these doors; some classes are primarily foreigners that attend  and some classes are primarily Costa Ricans so it’s a nice kind of community mix, in that I never set out  that this is just for foreigners or something just for the locals, for EVERYONE.”



- Wisdom Radio interview with Tina Newton
