We are delighted to announce that March will provide three chances to practice at The Downing Museum: basics yoga, yin yoga, and meditation. Whether you are already a fan of practicing at the museum or looking for a first class to experience in this lovely environment, we hope that you can join us; please see details below, and use the links to register. *
- Yoga@the Museum: join Shigeko Sleeper for this Basics-level practice on Sat., March 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 offers our second afternoon Yin practice at the museum, on Sat., March 30, at 4:30 p.m. Register 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.
- Meditation@the Museum: join Alice Simpson on Sat., March 30, at 10:30 a.m. to explore several meditation techniques, including mindfulness, guided, mantra, walking, and listening meditations. We welcome both beginners and experienced meditators to this monthly session; register here.
* Please remember that, to respect the space in the art gallery, participants must pre-register for the @theMuseum classes. In addition, if you register and later find that you cannot attend, please let me know immediately so that I can offer the space to another student.
Realize, too, that cancelling right before the class meets or no-showing prevents other students from being able to attend. Please help us serve our community by honoring your registration commitment or by providing substantial advance notice if you absolutely cannot.
