WesBAM (a student run exercise collective) Presents: Radical Vinyasa Yoga
The word "radical" comes from the Latin word meaning "root." In this hour-long power flow yoga class, we will focus on getting grounded with the root chakra, the center of the body that connects us to the earth. We will channel the power of the legs and glutes as we move from sun salutations, firey lunges, and liberating inversions to explore the strength and independence this practice has to offer! This class emphasizes body acceptance, body lovin', and making the practice your own radical expression!

The class will commence with an abs and stretch routine to reduce muscle soreness and engage the core.

Wesleyan Film Series: Cape Fear (1991)
Director: Martin Scorsese. With Robert De Niro, Nick Nolte. 127 min. Decades before The Wolf of Wall Street, Marty went nuts with a predator of a different stripe: a psychopathic ex-con out to systematically destroy the defender who failed him. A tattooed, muscular De Niro oozes menacing sleaze, his performance perfectly tuned to an over-the-top style that's part horror flick, part social satire, and part Hitchcock homage.
