NEIGHBORHOOD NEWS  


November 19, 2019, The Daily Nutmeg, by David Zukowski- "In a corner room on the second floor of his house, Ed Gendron was getting ready for a busy November, his attention divided between current filmmaking projects and a finished one. Playing Soldier, his documentary about World War II reenactors, would soon be shown at the Yonkers Film Festival, its first public screening outside of New Haven. Meanwhile, prints from Reenactor Moment, the photo series that began his immersion in the world of battle reenactment, were about to be shown at Yale West Campus for City-Wide Open Studios Alternative Space Weekend. "Right now I'm in the advertising stage of everything... Putting out things to get my art show seen. Putting out things to get butts in seats at the movie theater. I need to make a flyer, or I need to put out another Instagram post. Social media is its own juggling act," Gendron says. He turns to open the Playing Soldier promo file folder on one monitor, demonstrating the minutiae of the promotional effort, cycling through variations of digital flyers that feature images from the project. Men and women in historically accurate Allied-and Axis-uniform provide an arresting visual, posed against a recognizably American backdrop. And in one of his composites, an arm sleeved in army green mock-flies a model World War II bomber-which perhaps even better captures the obsessive spirit of historical reenactment..."

RESTORATIVE YOGA WITH SASKIA BERGAMANS SMITH @THE WELL

Our monthly restorative yoga workshop is a gem! Saskia with guide you through supported yoga postures to ensure you are in the optimal comfortable position in order to support your journey into reconnecting with your parasympathetic nervous system.

With the hectic nature of life, we often forget how it is to be fully rested and rejuvenated. When the body is in a constant state of stress, one's interaction with the world is impeded. We are not able to optimally interact and participate with the world at large and the inner workings of the body is compromised too. One of the examples is that the body does not benefit from nutrition, because the digestion and elimination systems are slowed down. Even sleep is affected by this agitated state.

It is through the practices of restorative yoga that we are able to rest and connect more deeply with the body, mind and spirit, giving us the opportunity to see how much more interacted and connected to the inner and outer world we have the potential to be.

We invite you to begin the journey to doing less and discover the richness within the art of this practice! REGISTER HERE
