More Yoga for the Rest of Us

More Yoga for the Rest of Us (2004)
This DVD modifies the benefits of Yoga for everyone. If you have never tried Yoga, that’s okay. Instructor Peggy Cappy guides you through stretches, balancing exercise and easy strength training moves that accommodate seniors and citizens of all stages of fitness. The guided relaxation segment at the end “de-stresses” your mind and body. Yoga gets better the more you do it. In fact, it can be a good addiction.

Walk the Line

Walk the Line (2006) PG-13
Johnny Cash, his story. Johnny Cash and June Carter, their story. As we follow the life of Johnny Cash, we discover that his life was so entwined with the life of June Carter, you can’t have one without the other (no pun intended). Oscar winner Reese Witherspoon plays the part of June Carter with such conviction that you understand the strength of their love. As they say, this movie really rocks.

And tonight at 10:00 p.m. on PBS, check out the 1969 documentary Johnny Cash: The Man, His World, His Music. Watch him perform with June Carter Cash and Bob Dylan; then go behind the scenes with friends and family. You can also read an interview with Reese Witherspoon, who talks about preparing for Walk the Line and portraying June.

The African Queen

The African Queen (1951)

This classic movie stands the test of time. It has humor, adventure, romance and two American icons of acting. Katherine Hepburn and Humphrey Bogart are good alone, but as a team they brilliantly enhance each other. Even if you have seen it before, it’s a reliable night of fun watching and GOOD FOR ALL AGES.

Based on the 1935 novel by C. S. Forester.
