Artful Movements: Embody the Colors of Nature

Saturday, January 18, 2020,

William D. Adams Gallery

Ernest Blumenschein uses dreamy colors in Untitled (Mountain Wood Gatherers) to depict the landscape of New Mexico, merging the human figures and landscape into one. The Revolved Triangle yoga pose prompts one to mimic the form of mountains, embodying their true colors, and thus stretching and strengthening the arms, back, and legs.

Part of Let Art Inspire, the Museum’s wellness initiative, Artful Movements provides an opportunity to practice a series of gentle yoga poses inspired by artworks in the galleries. These free one-hour sessions begin 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 7 and older are welcome. A limited number of yoga mats will be available; guests are encouraged to bring their own. Wear comfortable clothing that will allow you to stretch.

All participants will meet in the Williams D. Adams Gallery/Museum lobby.

For questions, please contact Jordia Benjamin-Sands.
