We are delighted to announce that February will provide not one but two opportunities to practice yoga at The Downing Museum! Yes, that’s right—in addition to our usual, morning Yoga@the Museum class on the second Saturday of the month, in February, we will also offer an afternoon Yin@the Museum class on the third Saturday! Whether you are already a fan of practicing at the museum or looking for a first class to experience, we hope you can join us; please see details below, and use the links to register.
- Yoga@the Museum: join Leslie Weigel for this Basics-level practice on Sat., Feb. 9, at 10:30 a.m. by registering here. Our basics classes incorporate asanas (poses), breathing exercises, and awareness linking the breath to movement. They focus on alignment, offer modifications to help students at varying levels of experience, and are moderately paced.
- Yin@the Museum: Chie Tanaka teaches the first meeting of this class on Sat., Feb. 16, at 4:30 p.m. Join Chie by registering here. Yin yoga works the deeper layers of connective tissue to improve flexibility and hydration of the joints and tissue by using longer, deeper holds of specific, tailored poses. It often targets the lower back and hips, and it can also promote deep release of stress and tension from both body and mind.
Fans of Meditation@the Museum, we haven’t forgotten you! Please mark your calendars for Saturday, February 23. We will open registration for the February meditation class after this month’s session—on January 26—has met. Also, although the January event is full, please email if you’d like to be added to its wait list.
