ENLIGHTEN UP (2008) A Skeptic’s Journey Into the World of Yoga
Monday, May 24 | 7:30PM Life Alive Urban Oasis & Cafe
194 Middle Street, Lowell Free admission (donations welcome!)
For some, the power of yoga has transformed and healed body, mind, and soul. But Nick Rosen is a bit skeptical — what IS it about yoga practice that draws millions into studios, gyms, and temples around the world? Follow Nick as he travels for 6 months across the globe at the request of his friend and filmmaker Kate Churchill, who herself believes that yoga can transform anyone. Beautifully filmed and brilliantly presented, Enlighten Up draws us in close — Nick is TRULY as real as it gets, spouting humorous insights and absorbing every incredible part of his quest and the people he meets: celebrity yogis, renowned gurus, and what we’d all consider to be ‘yoga freaks.’ If you have ANY experience or interest in yoga or its origins, don’t miss this film!
This special event is brought to you in partnership by the Lowell Film Collaborative, Life Alive Cafe, and BromYoga in Lowell. Founded by Kripalu-trained yoga instructor Jon Brandi, BromYoga offers weekly yoga classes at The Space at 122 Western Avenue. In addition to the film screening, Jon will lead the audience in gentle yoga and meditation exercises suitable for everyone — yoga mats and special clothing NOT required!
First of all, a big Film Collaborative THANK YOU to everyone who came out to our screening of Good Food at Life Alive last night — what a turnout! Thanks goes to all our parters, including the Life Alive staff!
While we’re gone, keep April 2, 3, and 5 firmly on your calendars for Lowell’s Marx Brothers Revue (click the icon on your right!) in celebration of the upcoming3rd Annual Lowell Film Festival, just a couple of weeks away. Get excited, folks! Great 1930′s film will be the rage in the Mill City!
