Yoga Asana is a wonderful practice. Something you can, and should be able to do throughout your lifetime. However, what you do at different stages of your life will vary. It is important to learn the technique and method of asana but beyond that, asana should always be beneficial and balanced with the other practices of pranayama and meditation. In this session we will try to find our balance in following our breath slowly through the various asanas of the Ashtanga Vinyasa System in a meditative way. Come for this Sunday 27th for this special workshop of the Yoga Asana & Pranayama, and also we will open with contemplation and sitting practice, followed by chanting and concluding with classic pranayama. For anyone new to pranayama, to sitting and contemplation, this is a perfect opportunity to start and learn. For those already with a practice of pranayama, this is a perfect time to deepen your practice. Check for more schedule www.yogacambodia.com.
In January 1958, Yves Saint Laurent (Pierre Niney) – aged merely 21 – was unexpectedly called upon to oversee the legendary Paris fashion house established by recently deceased Christian Dior.
All eyes turned to this very young assistant as he presented his first collection for Dior and instantly ascended to the heights of haute couture’s elite class. During Saint Laurent’s breathtaking and groundbreaking show, he met with another fate in being introduced to Pierre Bergé (Guillaume Gallienne), patron of the arts, future love of his life and lifelong business partner.
Three years later, the two founded the Yves Saint Laurent Company, which would rapidly become one of the biggest luxury powerhouses on the planet.
Directed by Jalil Lespert with a screenplay by Lespert and Marrie-Pierre Huster, YVES SAINT LAURENT is at once a captivating story about the making of an icon and a testament to the power of enduring love.
Saint Laurent (played with uncanny accuracy by Pierre Niney) goes through nervous breakdowns, addictions and affairs with gold diggers, but remains a comparatively opaque personality. – NEW YORK TIMES

One Couch at a Time follows ‘CouchSurfing evangelist’ Alexandra Liss across 6 continents, 21 countries, CouchSurfing for 7 months in the first full-length feature ever to document the CouchSurfing movement and this emerging ‘age of sharing’ we are entering.
One Couch at a Time is the first full-length feature documentary on the CouchSurfing movement and this emerging “age of sharing” we are entering. The film follows protagonist and veteran CouchSurfer, Alexandra Liss, through 21 countries, 6 subcontinents, for 7 months using CouchSurfing.org. As we explore our inner and societal limits, this film pushes us to ask ourselves and our peers “what would YOU be willing to share with a stranger?”
CouchSurfing is a planet in this “sharing economy” galaxy- and the platform for which this entire film takes place. Alexandra also explores crowd funding, co-working, ridesharing, and gifting at the ultimate sharing society – Burningman! We focus, however, on the micro by capturing the magical, heart-warming, serendipitous exchanges that occur one couch at a time.
Each host and traveler along the way provide unique experiences becoming sub-subjects illustrating the incredible exchange. Alexandra, who begins her journey full of confusion, ends up learning lessons of a lifetime with the help of a few worldly friends.
We learn, that by embracing the “age of sharing” mentality is to have access to methods which make the pursuit of your passions and dreams merely a couch away. Featured interviews include sharing economy expert Rachel Botsman, founder of Burningman Larry Harvey, sacred economist Charles Eisenstein, and of course, the founder of Couchsurfing, Casey Fenton.

With an insane asylum standing in for everyday society, Milos Forman’s 1975 film adaptation of Ken Kesey’s novel is a comically sharp indictment of the Establishment urge to conform.
Playing crazy to avoid prison work detail, manic free spirit Randle P. McMurphy (Jack Nicholson) is sent to the state mental hospital for evaluation. There he encounters a motley crew of mostly voluntary inmates, including cowed mama’s boy Billy (Brad Dourif) and silent Native American Chief Bromden (Will Sampson), presided over by the icy Nurse Ratched (Louise Fletcher).
Ratched and McMurphy recognize that each is the other’s worst enemy: an authority figure who equates sanity with correct behavior, and a misfit who is charismatic enough to dismantle the system simply by living as he pleases. McMurphy proceeds to instigate group insurrections large and small, ranging from a restorative basketball game to an unfettered afternoon boat trip and a tragic after-hours party with hookers and booze.
Nurse Ratched, however, has the machinery of power on her side to ensure that McMurphy will not defeat her. Still, McMurphy’s message to live free or die is ultimately not lost on one inmate, revealing that escape is still possible even from the most oppressive conditions.
Jack Nicholson stars in an outstanding characterization of Ken Kesey’s asylum anti-hero, McMurphy, and Milos Forman’s direction of a superbly-cast film is equally meritorious. – VARIETY
The movie is both timeless and indicative of its own era, a period of anti-establishment movements. – 7M PICTURES
