"Good morning! Just wanted to take the opportunity to say how much I am enjoying your programming, particularly your most recent insight on near eastern cultures and also the addition of the eastern "fitness" routines of Qigong. Those practices are very calming and really help me center in the early morning. Thank you so much, once again, in being in tune with our communities and its' needs!"

"I just wanted to write to you to tell you how much I love your series with Kate Morrill and Christina Barea-Young & Peyton Young. They are excellent teachers who are so knowledgeable as well as personable. I am a senior with joint pain and arthritis and the gentle movements from these exercises are doing wonders for me. In addition, they increase my oxygenation and circulation and I find myself doing deep yawns as I am moving through them. You are doing a wonderful service to many people in our community and I thank you very much for including them in your programming. I sincerely hope you continue to carry them over the long term."
