Back to Basics: Beginners Series 2021

Djuna has the patience of a saint. It was just nice to go at a pace that felt proportional to how a beginner’s brain works and at the same time, I found it challenging. I wanted to finally understand the poses I was attempting to execute in class, and this helped me get closer to that goal.
