Whether you are already a fan of practicing at the museum or looking for a first class to experience in this lovely environment, we invite you to sign up today; see details below, and use the links to register. *
- Yoga@the Museum: join Leslie Weigel for this Basics-level practice on Sat., July 13, 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: Angie Jones offers an afternoon Yin practice at the museum, on Sat., July 20, at 4:30 p.m.—join her 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.
- Meditation@the Museum: join Alice Simpson on Sat., July 27, 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.
* Registration requirement: to respect the space in the art gallery, participants must pre-register for all of our @the Museum classes. In addition, if you register and later find that you cannot attend, please notify us know immediately so that we can offer that space to another student.
Registration deadline: to allow us to prepare for the @the Museum classes, registration closes at noon the previous day or when the class reaches capacity, whichever occurs first.
Cancellation policy: participants who cancel the day the class meets or no-show prevent other students from being able to attend. Therefore, please help us serve our community by honoring your registration commitment or by providing at least 24 hours’ advance notice if you cannot.
