Fun Fact: Stav who has a background in opera singing and acting had a role in a feature film, Edible Souls! It was filmed back in 2010 and premiered at the NY Film Fest in September.
EDIBLE SOULS is a comedy-drama set in a multiethnic neighborhood in New York City. The protagonist, Tom (Nick Bixby), is gifted a small backyard that he turns into a farm. Though treated as a total creep by the neighbors, his farm slowly begins to transform into a unique oasis for quirky neighbors and friends. Sonia (Stav Livne) is an aspiring singer who works at the Japanese restaurant nearby; she sings opera and jazz throughout the film, befriending Tom's love interest, Lily (Meggy Hai Trang), who abruptly quits working at the Japanese restaurant as the head chef.
This week, we go over the Turtle Pose. Inspired by the patient turtle, this pose increases mental focus and stretches the arms, back, and legs. This pose looks like a turtle withdrawing into its shell!
