This past weekend I decided to take my level 3 with ORCKA after seeing that Gayle from Sometimes Eventful posted about the class that she took. I didn’t know that there was a relatively new place teaching ORCKA classes nearby. It all comes naturally. I can’t recommend them enough! I had always wanted to finish… Continue reading ORCKA
