What’s good about it: It is a one stop shop that has no barrier of language, culture or belief!
What’s not so good about it: With all that choice it can seem a little daunting….I mean where do you start and how do you know what’s good. My tip is just explore but do it slowly. Start with one group or one practice and trial it for a week before adding or expanding your playlist.
