- Yoga@the Museum: join Shigeko Sleeper for this Basics-level practice on Sat., Aug. 10, 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: welcome Chie Tanaka back to teaching the Yin class at the museum, on Sat., Aug. 31, at 4:30 p.m.—join her by registering here. [Please note a the new date, necessitated by the museum’s schedule.] 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.
* 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.
