|Lenna & Kathy Oravec at Nia on Siesta beach - December 4, 2012|
On tuesday I went to Siesta Key beach for Nia class and took this amazing photo . . .
This week I am participating in the Nia White Belt Intensive Training!
I wanted to share a few photos I took on Tuesday. It was a rather stormy day where amazingly, we were still able to have Nia class on the beach (Siesta Key, Florida) with Kathy Oravec. I found it quite exhilarating dancing in the wind while watching the waves and the birds (no dolphins that day!) . . .Read More

What is Nia?
Nia is a sensory-based movement practice that draws from martial arts, dance arts and healing arts. It empowers people of all shapes and sizes by connecting the body, mind, emotions and spirit. Classes are taken barefoot to soul-stirring music in more than 45 countries. Trainings are designed for those seeking personal enrichment and professional development. Every experience can be adapted to individual needs and abilities. Step into your own joyful journey with Nia, and positively shape the way you feel, look, think and live.

I am taking a stamp carving class with Julie Balzer and originally wrote about what I did in lesson 4 here, in case you missed it. This particular lesson is about creating a series or set of stamps to use together. At the beginning of the video Julie showed us a banner shaped set she made with a cute little flat top, but then she went on to make a chevron set with a pointed top for the actual lesson. I really liked the banner shape and decided to make my first set that way. While I love this cute set of stamps I made . . .
