Sichuan China Earthquake Facts, as of May 26, MercyCorps reports:

More than 62,500 dead
Nearly 24,000 still missing
More than 436,000 homes have collapsed
At least 292,000 injured
About five million homeless

Nia: Nia (pronounced Nee'uh) is a body-mind-spirit fitness and lifestyle practice. Drawn from three dance arts, three non-impact martial arts, and three healing arts (such as yoga), Nia involves a variety of movement speeds and styles, ranges of motion, and energy dynamics. Nia is done barefoot to music and delivers cardiovascular and whole-body conditioning. All fitness levels welcome.

Throughout the world, Nia classes are being held towards the earthquake relief efforts. In response to Hurricane Katrina (2005), Nia worldwide raised $30,000! Now, we invite you again to join world efforts by participating in these two special classes being held in West Seattle at Youngstown Cultural Arts Center, 4408 Delridge Ave SW, Seattle, WA, 98106.

Sincerely, Lesley Tinker, Certified Blue Belt Nia Instructor; Jill Pagano, Certified Black Belt Nia Instructor
