2) Take classes from a skilled teacher
Try out a few different forms and see which ones feel right for you.
3) Use Books, CDs and DVDs to keep information fresh
Supplemental materials are a great way to keep what you’ve learned fresh and learn more details about a practice you are working on. Some suggestion:
