Yoga Field Trip to Cleveland OH, August 2 & 3, 2014

The Cleveland Museum of Art will be hosting the exhibition Yoga: The Art of Transformation this summer, June 22 through September 7, 2014.

This presentation is: "...the world’s first exhibition about yoga’s visual history, [and] will explore yoga’s meanings and transformations over time, including its entry into the global arena; yoga’s goals of spiritual enlightenment, worldly power and health and well-being; and the beauty and profundity of Indian art.

Works will include sculptural masterpieces of historical and divine yogis, exquisite Mughal paintings of militant yogis and romantic heroes, Islamic divination texts, fifteen-foot scrolls depicting the chakras (energy centers of the body), nineteenth-century photography and early films."

A few of us from the Ann Arbor area plan to visit the exhibit and we'll also take a special yoga class from  Iyengar Yoga teacher, Karen Allgire, at Green Tara Yoga and Healing Arts in Cleveland Heights.  We invite you to join us August 2 & 3, 2014, for this fun yoga-themed field trip!
