1 New
1 Out of Towner

My head is thick with allergies. Combined with my current loss of mind, it takes a huge effort to dial in and teach lately. So I errorred on the side of grounded and geeky and relied on what I have been doing the past several classes which is to dial in the Hip Rotation Awareness and start to try to connect with the Breath. We have been playing the in the subtle energetic realms so this is an attempt to ground the work again in the mechanical.
