Starting in April 2023 (this month), instead of creating a new post for each class, I’m going to create one post for each week that will cover the set for that week. On Mondays (a), we start working with the movement. Tuesdays, I’ll go into more details (b). On Wednesdays (c), I’ll put what we have back into the form to make the connections.
