Yoga Themes: Assassin’s YogaΒ 

Yoga Themes: Assassin’s YogaΒ 

As I finish my first semester of Yoga Teacher Training, I feel like I have enough knowledge, insight, and training to be able to work on and create my own yoga routines and classes with specific themes and ideas behind them. I as a teacher in training am a huge fan of themed yoga as I feel like a good theme helps to bring focus and cohesion to class as well as clarity and purpose. These themes and classes can…

The Criterion Reviews: “Night and Fog”(1955)

The Criterion Reviews: “Night and Fog”(1955)

Among the film, DVD and Blu ray, and overall movie going scene there exists a special collection known as “The Criterion Collection”. Created starting in 1984, this is a collection of films brought together and distributed to film aficionados like myself that are considered classic, arthouse, different, or important to the film medium as a whole. Needless to say, this is a very exclusive, extensive, and powerful collection of films that exemplify film at its most unique, its most universal,…

Top Favorite Pokemon (Type-Based)

Top Favorite Pokemon (Type-Based)

Review: “Doctor Strange” (2016)

Review: “Doctor Strange” (2016)

This is an exciting one for me. Out of all of the Marvel movies coming out, “Doctor Strange” (2016) has been the one that I’ve not only been the most curious to see but also the most anticipated. Behind Iron Man, the Sorcerer Supreme Doctor Strange has been one of my favorite superhero Marvel characters. With his sympathetic origins, complex magical lore, and his intense fantastical powers and adventures, I can relate to him and his world just as much…
