WHAT THEY HAD
Weekdays at 3:20pm, 5:45pm, 8pm
Sat & Sun at 1pm, 3:20pm, 5:45pm, 8pm

From first-time writer/director Elizabeth Chomko, What They Had centers on a family in crisis. Bridget returns home to Chicago at her brother's urging to deal with her ailing mother and her father's reluctance to let go of their life together. Watch the trailer.

SUSPIRIA
Weekdays at 4:45pm, 8pm
Sat & Sun at 1:35pm, 4:45pm, 8pm

A darkness swirls at the center of a world-renowned dance company, one that will engulf the troupe's artistic director, an ambitious young dancer, and a grieving psychotherapist. Some will succumb to the nightmare. Others will finally wake up. Watch the trailer.

THE HAPPY PRINCE
Weekdays at 5:20pm
Sat & Sun at 12:30pm, 5:20pm

The last days of Oscar Wilde - and the ghosts that haunted them - are vividly evoked in Rupert Everett's directorial debut. Wilde's body is ailing and heavy, his mind is spinning, and he survives by falling back on the flamboyant irony and brilliant wit that defined him. As the film travels through his final act and journeys through England, France, and Italy, desire and loyalty face off, the transience of lust is laid bare, and the true riches of love are revealed. Watch the trailer.

THE OLD MAN AND THE GUN
Weekdays at 3:15pm, 5:30pm, 7:45pm
(Thursday - no showing at 3:15pm)
Sat & Sun at 1pm, 3:15pm, 5:30pm, 7:45pm

The Old Man and the Gun is based on the true story of Forrest Tucker, from his audacious escape from San Quentin at the age of 70 to an unprecedented string of heists that confounded authorities and enchanted the public. Wrapped up in the pursuit are detective John Hunt, who becomes captivated with Forrest's commitment to his craft, and a woman, who loves him in spite of his chosen profession. Watch the trailer.

We knew when Union Yoga was launched that if we were to offer a teacher training that it would have to be exceptional. It would have to be a deep dive of traditional methodology, philosophy and discipline and truly prepare individuals with the skills to teach (even beyond a yoga class). Noah Maze is known as the teacher of teachers offering some of the smartest and clearest programs available anywhere. He has a select group of teachers who offer the MazeMethod, carrying his name and specific guidelines for a stellar 200 hour program. We are honored and excited that Nichol Chase and Peach Friedman will be bringing this method to Union Yoga. This is a program that you will appreciate while you're going through it and the appreciation will grow over the years.

200 HOUR OVERVIEW:
The Mazé Method is a rare yoga school, with an enduring dedication to the pursuit of educational excellence, offering unparalleled student experiences across a broad spectrum of yoga academia and experiential education. Our trainings are informative, ever improving and customized to each group of students’ needs and goals. We emphasize logical analysis, clear language, and critical thinking.

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN:
The Mazé Method 200-hour teacher trainings take you on a journey of self-discovery and education into all things yoga. Our foundational training (200–hour) program is ideal for serious students of yoga, aspiring yoga teachers, and teachers with varying levels of experience. Students with injuries and health issues are also encouraged to attend. Our curriculum combines detailed alignment and intelligent sequencing with vinyasa theory, and provides you with sound knowledge and skills to teach safe and effective yoga classes. This training is recognized by Yoga Alliance and focuses in three areas of study: The Theory and Practice of Yoga, Yoga Philosophy, and The Art of Teaching. Trainees may thus register with Yoga Alliance at its RYT-200 level upon successful completion of this training.

In this training, you will study and deconstruct asana (yoga poses), pranayama (breath work), meditation, applied anatomy, therapeutics, yoga theory and practice, yoga history and philosophy, basic Sanskrit, ethics and boundaries, and you will master the skills required to teach.
