Glitz, glamour, Hollywood intrigue… this week on THAT’S AWSM! we’re hanging out in Los Angeles, California with Kieran, a 16 year old Ojibwe youth, and Vanessa Lengies, a Canadian actor based in LA, best known for her roles on “American Dreams”, “Hawthorne”, and as Sugar Motta on “Glee”! There’s no better way to see LA than from above, like a true star… and that’s exactly what these two will be doing, right after checking out the boardwalk on Venice Beach and searching for some inner peace in yoga class!

Light sport aircraft are incredibly strong, built to withstand up to 6 g forces as they fly and glide in the air. Piloted by a certified captain from Pacific Blue Air LA, in a light sport aircraft you can see the breathtaking views of LA from the best vantage point – the sky! Light sport aircraft has an engine, just like an airplane, but is able to glide even without one… and always has a parachute nearby, just in case!
Yoga has a long history that can be traced back thousands of years. Thought to have originated in South Asia, Yoga is a system of physical and mental practices with the intention of creating harmony within the mind and body.

Kieran, Vanessa and Darcy tried hot yoga, in which the yoga studio can be heated up to 35 to 38 degrees Celsius! They tried it at:

You may recognize him from his roles on Blackstone and Delmer & Marta, or you may have heard that he’s produced a few films and web series himself, but it’s time to get to know DARCY WAITE as host of That’s AWSM! Outgoing, sporty, goofy, warm, and entertaining, Darcy is down to try any and all of our AWSM activities… unfortunately he doesn’t often get to! He can recite every single line from every Will Ferrell movie ever made, and isn’t too crazy about vegetables, but there is nothing he loves more than meeting teens from communities all over Canada and helping them live their best AWSM lives – which makes him the perfect guy for the job!
Kieran is a 16 year old Ojibwe youth from Sioux Lookout, Ontario. An active athlete, Kieran loves wrestling, and is a big fan of motorcross, motorcycles, and snowmobiling.
