“I got the chance to watch the first two sessions of the Art of Adjustments online course this morning. Everything was so clear and well thought out, including the theory of the second class. I taught two yin sessions today and caught myself engaged in more adjustments than I normally give. That was pleasant. The most striking part so far was that I felt more confident in experimenting with new adjustments – both me and my fellow yoginis benefited from that. Thank you! Off to watch the third session now that my little one is in bed.” —Anonymous
