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!
- Saturday August 2, Yoga class 11:30 -- 1:30 (see below)
- Afternoon -- possible activities include Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, walking / hiking, or just taking it easy.
- Dinner in Cleveland Heights
- Sunday August 3, 10am through early afternoon visit Cleveland Museum of Art for the Yoga exhibition
Transformation Through Asana - a yoga class taught by Karen Allgire.
Saturday August 2, 11:30 -- 1:30 $28
This asana class will be inspired by the artwork on view in Yoga: The Art of Transformation at The Cleveland Museum of Art. We will consider how yoga functions not only as a science and a philosophy but also as an artistic experience. Come have your aesthetic sensibilities awakened through the art of Iyengar Yoga. Out of town students can take advantage of the opportunity to visit the exhibit.
Sign up for this class soon. Karen A. would like to know very soon how many of us from this area will be taking the class. There is a limit of 14 people, and others will also be invited, so act soon if you plan to attend. Send $28 to:
