Discover the connections between yoga and the traditions expressed in Himalayan art.
Yoga is a system of philosophy and practice that seeks to help people align their body and mind in order to transform their experience. One translation of yoga is “yoke,” the tool used to connect an ox to a plough. Like yoga, the art objects in our collection, intended for ritual purposes as well as aesthetic ones, seek to link the worldly and the transcendent.
This month Abbie Galvin joins us to discuss a work of art that will inspire a conversation about yoga, its philosophies, and its visual representations. A breathing exercise will allow participants to internalize the discussed concepts.
