    Body wrap training in West Yorkshire?

    Does anyone know of any Body Wrap trainers or training courses in West Yorkshire? I am interested in Shrinking Violet but have been ringing them all afternoon and no one is answering. Any accredited Body Wrap course would be ok, it doesn't have to be Shrinking Violet. Thank you :)
