Dear Friend,

I never imagined having something so tragic happen in our community. It has been so heartbreaking. I so appreciate all the outpouring love and support from everyone! In honor of all the beautiful angels and heroes, I would like to share with you one of the poems from the victims.

Life Is Like a Roller Coaster
by Alex Schachter, 14

Life is like a roller coaster
It has some ups and downs
Sometimes you can take it slow or very fast
It maybe hard to breath at times
But you have to push yourself and keep going
Your bar is your safety
It’s like your family and friends
You hold on tight and you don’t let go
But sometimes you might throw your hands up
Because your friends and family will always be with you
Just like that bar keeping you safe at all times
It maybe too much for you at times: the twists, the turns, the upside downs
But you get back up
You keep chugging along
Eventually it comes to a stop
You won’t know when or how
But you will know that’ll be time to get off and start anew
Life is like a roller coaster

With much love,
Mary Ann

Featured Pose
Deep Lunge Twist: This is an incredible hip opener as well as an intense strength builder. Drop your back knee to the floor and place the top of your back foot flat on the floor. Lunge your weight forward into your front knee (this is the only pose where you do not need to stack knee over your ankle). Point your back foot straight. You can keep your hands on your hips or place your hand on your knee. Taking your eye gaze over your shoulder, breathe deeply for 5 breaths.

Yoga Helps to bring calm at Stoneman Douglas when it's most needed

by Brian Ballou, Sun-Sentinel

On a morning when the stress level was high as Marjory Stoneman Douglas students returned to class, physical education teacher Amy Kenny touted the healing benefits of yoga to students.

“The first day back was really tough to deal with… and once I got with my kids, my students, everything sort of lifted and lightened,” Kenny said. “All they wanted me to do was just love on them and hug them, and we did some yoga and read a story about peace.”
