The song, choreography and the instructor are all amazing.


I feel the cost can be less given that it takes 4 sessions to learn one song.

I love that I was able to take an online class from Ajna especially since I don't live in NYC anymore. I hold the Ajna brand to high standards because that's how it presented itself when the classes started in NYC. But this online class didn't reflect the brand's standards, unfortunately.


I wish the instructor would've (1) given specific feedback (esp when asked) instead of a generic comment to everyone; (2) shared a recording of the entire choreo instead of 80% of it (including a recording from the back); (3) not had someone walking in the background to collect food deliveries; (4) repeated the steps over and over and over to really teach us. I wish the choreo was just Bollywood & Bhangra instead of mostly hip-hop.
