WINTER SEASON. BUT NOW, — Chuck: WE’RE ABOUT TO FIND OUT SOMETHING SOME YOGA, SOME FUN, SOMEBODY WILL HELP US. ARE YOU READY? ARE YOU READY. GOING TO HELP YOU US UNDERSTAND WHAT THIS IS ALL ABOUT. A NEW PROGRAM COMING TO SCHOOLS RIGHT. THAT’S RIGHT, AND IT IS HELPING TO KEEP ME HONEST DANIELLE KARMANOS WORK IT OUT. THANK YOU. IT’S A 10 WEEK PROGRAM IN PARTNERSHIP WITH THE CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL OF MICHIGAN TO GIVE KIDS TOOLS TO MAKE HEALTHY CHOICES AND PROMOTE OPTIMUM HEALTH IN MIND, BODY AND SPIRIT THROUGH YOGA. THIS IS REALLY AWESOME. ALSO SIX WEEKS OPTIONS FOR KIDS. WE DID THAT IN THE SUMMER. Chuck: TOM ANDERSON GOOD TO SIGH. WE HAVE OUR HELPERS WHO WILL HELP US THROUGH THIS. KERRY THE PROGRAM AND VOLUNTEER COORDINATOR. JEREMIAH GUILD WE KNEW JEREMIAH WAS HERE. MADISON GUILD, HEY, MADISON HOW IS IT GOING. THEN WE HAVE SABINE. I DON’T REALLY DO YOGA, I DON’T GET IT, I DON’T KNOW IT. SO TELL US ABOUT THIS PROGRAM BECAUSE YOU’RE COMBINING A LOT OF THINGS IN ONE PLACE, RIGHT. IT’S AN INCREDIBLE PROGRAM. ACTUALLY WE’RE CELEBRATING A MILESTONE 10 YEARS SERVING THE CHILDREN AND COMMUNITY. IT’S 10 WEEKS, IT’S ONE HOUR A WEEK. AND THE SESSIONS HAVE THEMES. IT’S YOGA-BASED AND NUTRITION BASED BUT WE HAVE THEMES LIKE PEACE, STRENGTH, FLEXIBILITY, GRATITUDE. WE TIE THOSE IN TO NUTRITION. WHAT’S REALLY YOU UNIQUE WE REINFORCE THE LESSON AND WE HAVE THEM EXTEND IT INTO THEIR COMMUNITY WITH THEIR FAMILY, THEIR FRIENDS, AND WHATEVER THEIR SUPPORT SYSTEM IS AND IT’S WONDERFUL. IF PEACE IS THEME WE ASK THEM TO BE A PEACEMAKER IN THE COMMUNITY AND WITH THEIR FRIENDS. Chuck: WE HAVE A BRACELET. WHAT DID WE GET. OH, THANK YOU, MADISON. SO THIS IS A GRATITUDE. WE’RE GRATEFUL YOU’RE HERE. WHAT DO YOU WANT TO SHOW US. TODAY I’M GOING TO LEAD THE KIDS THROUGH A SUN SALUTE LETTER A. KIDS DO THIS TO SELF-REGULATE AND RELAX AND REDUCE ANXIETY BEFORE TESTS SO WE’RE GOING TO PRACTICE THAT. LET’S T.S.A. START WITH OUR HANDS AT HEART CENTER. TAKE A BIG BREATH IN. EXHALE. SO LET’S BRING OUR ELEPHANT TRUNKS DOWN WHAT SOUND DOES AN ELEPHANT MAKE. BRING IT ON DOWN. INHALE, SAY CHEESE? CHEESE. EXHALE TO PLANT YOUR HANDS AND STEP BACK TO THE TOP OF YOUR — C INHALE LIFT YOUR CHIN AND HEART IN COBRA. GOOD EXHALE TO BIG DOWNWARD DOG BARK LIKE A DOG. THIS IS SO ADORABLE. INHALE TO YOUR TIPPI TOES. BEND YOUR KNEES, LET’S BECOME FROGS. RIB IT. INHALE YOUR HANDS ALL THE WAY UP. REACH UP. LOOK UP. EXHALE YOUR HANDS TO YOUR HEART. LET’S TALK ABOUT THIS A MINUTE BECAUSE THE IDEA THAT SOME SCHOOLS WHEN WE WERE KIDS THERE WAS P.E. IN ALL THE SCHOOLS. WE HAD A WAY TO WORK THIS OFF. SOME SCHOOLS DON’T HAVE P.E. ANYMORE SO IS THIS REPLACING? YOU KNOW WHAT THE LANDSCAPE OF EDUCATION HAS CHANGED SO MUCH. AND IN MICHIGAN IT’S A RECOMMENDATION. NOT A REQUIREMENT. SO IF — Tati: IT’S HAPPENING ALL OVER THE COUNTRY. SO THIS HELPS FULFILL SOME OF IT. IT TEACHES THEM ABOUT NUTRITION, AND BEING ACTIVE. THAT’S REALLY IMPORTANT. THESE KIDS NEED THE PHYSICAL ACTIVITY. Tati: NOW WE’RE RUNNING OUT OF TIME NOW I WANT TO KNOW FROM THE KIDS HOW MUCH DO YOU LIKE DOING YOGA QUICKLY? I LIKE DOING YOGA BECAUSE IT’S IT MAKES ME CALM DOWN. JEREMIAH? I LIKE DOING YOGA SO I MAY BE PEACEFUL AND CALM. SABINE. I LIKE DOING YOGA BECAUSE IT MAKES ME HAPPY AND PROUD OF MYSELF. Tati: WOW, THAT’S PRETTY IMPRESSIVE. AWESOME. THANK YOU GUYS.
