Melt Method: A Yin Yoga & Sound Journey – As an answer to our very active “yang” lifestyle, Yin Yoga is the perfect anecdote to slow down, connect and get in tune with our body’s and minds. Yin offers a much deeper access to the body and to the emotions. It is a more meditative approach with a physical focus much deeper than Yang like practices. Here the practitioner is trying to access the deeper tissues such as the connective tissue and fascia and many of the postures focus on areas that encompass a joint (hips, sacrum, spine). As one ages flexibility in the joints decreases and Yin yoga is a wonderful way to maintain that flexibility.

The Lodger: A Story of the London Fog – In 1927, Alfred Hitchcock directed a silent film inspired by the Jack the Ripper murders, starring an ambiguously appealing Ivor Novello. The long-form title not only situates the film in a smoky, sensuous atmosphere, but summons immediately the opaque moral compass at the heart of the plot. The Lodger is generally acknowledged to be the one where Hitchcock found his voice: that distinctive combination of death and fetishism, trick shots and music-hall humor, intense menace and elegant camerawork that assured his place among cinema’s giants. The film has been remade four times, alas, none to match the original.
