      Hoopurbia, Yoga & More

       
      I am excited about the week-long hula hooping festival because it's fun and healthy. www.hoopurbia.com

      I think exercise should be fun. I've signed up for a Hip-Hop dance class and will enjoy it.

      I also got tickets to www.wanderlust.com at the end of April.

      It's a good time to go hiking and there are many trails near me. The one I like is a full moon hike at Mandeville Canyon. No need to bring flashlights, just enjoy the view of city lights under the silver moon and escape from the crowds.
