Viparita Karani Mudra yoga

Viparita Karani Mudra

(Oct 31, 2019) Literally, it means an inversion. But T. Krishnamacharya is more specific about keeping the head on the ground and the body straight (not bent or curved). I can only interpret this as a headstand - not even a shoulder stand. This should overcome birth and death....more »»

Khecari Mudra yoga

Khecari Mudra

(Oct 30, 2019) Warning: this is extreme and reserved only for the rare few who will not compromise anything in pursuit of their practice (not me). Cut the frenulum gradually over the years so that the tongue can roll up and go inside the nostril passage towards the mid-brow center. This hastens attainment of Samadhi....more »»

Movie Review: Terminator: Dark Fate (2019)

(Oct 24, 2019) Just when you think Arnold Schwarzenegger's too old to come back in the Terminator franchise, he's back! He pairs-up again with an aged but rough-hewn Linda Hamilton (as Sarah Connor) and the both of them light up the cinema again. The action was non-stop and riveting. Despite the same storyline as the previous Terminator movies, this one comes out fresh and engaging. This is a much better movie than I thought.....more »»

Learning Thai with Cee teaching

Learning Thai with Cee

(Oct 13, 2019) Learning Thai from a white guy? Yes, and it couldn't be better. Cee knows and speaks Thai by heart with even a local accent. But as a fluent English speaker, he can articulate the nuances of the Thai language and answer our questions in a way a Thai teacher (with limited English) cannot...more »»

Movie Review: Joker (2019)

(Oct 8, 2019) After Heath Ledger's benchmark-busting portrayal of the Joker, what actor in his right mind would attempt to fill-in those unfathomable shoes? Who is he who dare say he is worthy? Joaquim Phoenix? Let's see if he measures up....more »»
