Links I clicked in January 2018

by William Hufschmidt –  31January2018

My goal for 2018, is to post a blog each month showing the bests and notable links and resources I encountered the previous month. Check back at the end of each month to see what is inoculating my thinking, practice, and teaching.

AND – did you hear that I am offering a new program in 2018 called Embodiment: A Pranakriya Immersion? The first one will happen in Atlanta on March 16-18, 2018. And here’s the programs I’ll be teaching in 2018! Hope to see you on and off the mat!
