Group Experience Choices

Guided Meditation

Offer your team relief from the pressures of daily life and give your colleagues the skills to improve concentration and overall relaxation in the workplace. Meditation has been used to quiet the mind, open the heart, calm the nervous system, and increase focus, and today scientists and business leaders have embraced meditation as a vital tool for brain health.

Group Yoga

Yoga can relieve stress, pain, and fatigue that often results from working long hours at the office. Bring your team together and balance out the workday with a guided group yoga session led by Tara Glazier, founder of Abhaya Yoga and the Abhaya Yoga teaching team. Classes are appropriate for all experience levels and leave employees feeling strong, calm, energized, and focused. (Yoga mats provided)

*The Rubin Museum’s Director of External Affairs Susan Kotcher is also available to teach on special request.

Gallery Tour Experience

Let us be your guide as we make connections between your team and the powerful deities and themes (link to themes page) depicted in the Rubin Museum’s collection. Before the tour each participant will complete a brief survey to identify individual workstyles. Next your guide will facilitate a tour of the collection that connects traits of key figures in Himalayan art with those of your team members. Learn about the art in the collection while also learning to appreciate the diverse attributes of your team members.

Sound Bath

Float in a meditative sound experience created by Maraliz Campos. Even beginners can attain a state of deep calm amid the curated sounds of electronic vibrations, Himalayan singing bowls, overtone singing, and more.
