Artful Movements: Embodying Colors of Nature

January 18, 2020, 1:00 PM


As part of the museum’s wellness initiative, Let Art Inspir, Artful Movements provides an opportunity to practice a series of gentle yoga poses inspired by artworks in the galleries. This free one-hour session begins with a deeper look at an artwork, followed by a series of gentle poses and meditation led by Kathleen Leisure Haberstock of School Street Yoga.

All yoga levels, families, and children over the age of seven are welcomed. A limited number of yoga mats are available; guests are encouraged to bring their own and to wear comfortable clothing that will allow you to stretch.

This Saturday artwork of inspiration is Ernest Blumenschein Untitled (Mountain Wood Gatherers) who uses dreamy colors to depict the landscape of New Mexico, merging the human figures and landscape as one. As such, the Revolved Triangle Yoga Pose prompts one to mimic the form of mountains, embodying inner true colors, and thus stretching and strengthening one’s arms, back, and legs.
