Episode Guide »
Leela is finishing teaching an early morning yoga class by demonstrating her version of The Flamingo Pose when Telly comes by.. She explains to him that yoga is a special kind of exercise from India and all the breathing and stretching feels great. Telly is upset that he missed the class, but Rosita and Elmo offer to teach him what they learned. Telly wants to do The Flamingo pose, so they start out by teaching him special yoga breathing - in and out very slowly. Next his arms go up, then out, then leg up? but Telly falls down. Telly tries again, but keeps falling. Elmo suggests that he try lifting the other leg or Rosita and Elmo hold Telly's arms until he's balanced, but that doesn't work either. Now Telly is sure he can't balance because one of his elbows is heavier than the other. Elmo and Rosita give him lots of objects to hold in his hands to make his weight equal on both sides. This doesn't help him balance either and he keeps crashing down. Chris comes by and explains that Telly can find his balance point with some practice. Chris demonstrates by showing how he can find just the right spot to balance the napkin holder on his tray. Chris helps Telly try to find his balance by supporting his arms as he shifts his weight. It works! Telly happily thanks everyone for all their help. He can't wait to practice other yoga poses, too!
