Over the next several weeks you will be seeing a number of changes to

First is this new homepage that I will be using to highlight resources that are available to members.

Next, I am re-working the 'Start DYC', 'Understanding Standing', 'Building a Better Practice', 'Tree Wrestling' and 'Swimming Through Space' into separate series of articles that tie teaching videos together.  I think this format will be more conductive for self-paced learning.

Guided Practice Sessions will be soon be available in Program format where you can get a reminder each day to engage in the sessions you have signed up for.
