Join us at the Schlessman Family Branch on Saturday, September 18 at 10:30, for an Introduction to Nia, offered by Kerstin of Harmony Yoga. Nia is a body-mind-spirit fitness class set to danceable beats of world music.
Nia blends the martial arts, the dance arts, and the healing arts into an inherently non-impact cardiovascular workout. Come wearing comfortable clothes!
Nia engages the mind as well as the body. The mind is used to imagine, witness, focus and direct attention. The emotions are used to personally engage the individual with activity, thereby creating the coupling effect needed to trigger the mind-body connection.

Did you see this article in the Denver Post about the Library's historical map collections? Trove of Maps at Denver Public Library takes explorer on historic trip (8/31/2010).

Our thoughts and thanks are with the brave firefighters who are currently battling the Four Mile and the Reservoir Road Fires. No film could capture the peril and plight of these heroes, but a few come close.
