Live Blog: Western's The Big Purple Couch

Well I've just walked into the Spoke, and it seems as though they are doing try-outs for Western's television show, The Big Purple Couch.

There are students and judges gathered around, American Idol style.

The first girl that was up wasn't very exuberant or camera friendly in my opinion, but the next contestant Lauren had great chemistry with the co-host.

Can anyone tell me more about The Big Purple Couch?

Run mainly (if not completely) by MIT students; from filming, editing, and hosting. Hosts are Phil Pallen and Ashley Rowe this year. They're both 3rd year MTP students but Ashley will not be hosting next year. If I'm not mistaken she's graduating...or at Fanshawe co-op perhaps? A lot of friends of mine work on the production team for it; they're looking for more help next year in both hosting and production, and filming I believe.

Pretty decent program - talks about things that the majority of Western students want to hear about. It airs on Rogers Television and is recorded bi-weekly in the Spoke.

Follow them on Twitter to learn more and keep up-to-date on what's going on at Western.

Oh, that's amazing! Why am I just hearing about this in my fourth year? You would think that if MIT student's were mainly running it, it would have a bit more exposure?

I'll have to do a little research on them and let everyone know who ended up winning! Thanks Ryan!

Recognized as one of the finest Yoga retreats in the world, sivanandabahamas is dedicated to promoting the authentic spiritual tradition of Yoga, in an environment normally associated with an exclusive star hotel. We endeavour to embody the spiritual tradition of Athithi devo Bhava (serving the Guest as an embodiment of the Divine) and the staff at sivanandabahamas are trying to practice all facets of Yoga in their daily lives. At sivanandabahamas, you get a unique insight into Yoga, irrespective of whether you are a beginner or have practiced for many years.

sivanandabahamas is situated in bahamas where the emphasis is to live an ashram style life (daily yoga, meditation sessions, chanting classes, organic vegetarian food, no alcohol, community service, farming etc.) in private, serene and "simply" luxurious accommodation and facilities. In a typical Yoga Retreat, guests practice different facets of Yoga - for physical strength, balance and flexibility, for physiological & therapeutic benefits and if they are interested, for pursuing a spiritual path through various types of meditation.
