Albert Bierstadt’s Hetch Hetchy Canyon
The first session in the series is perfect for beginners and those looking to include some simple, full-body movement in their day. We begin with gentle movement through the spine, then explore making space in our sun salutations, and finish with a basic balance pose, the tree pose (vrksasana), and a short savasana. Enjoy this simple, foundational session for the Art and Yoga series! Artwork introduction by A'mara Braynen '22, and yoga flow led by Anabelle Farnham.
Martine Gutierrez's Tlazoteotl
This session is designed for those ready to boldly embody their most authentic self. Through a Warrior series, we recognize and explore the courage it takes to be unapologetically you, and the holistic beauty that shines through when we find that strength. Come for a challenging but invigorating sequence and a gentle hip opener at the end. Artwork introduction by Jennifer Villa '21, and yoga flow led by Anabelle Farnham.
Miriam Shapiro’s Frida and Me
The sequence in this session is inspired by the lively and exuberant colors in a print by Miriam Shapiro. Through a series of simple but challenging postures, we will explore finding more space in our heart to open up to joy and love. Artwork introduction by Mariam (Mamou) Samaké '21, and yoga flow led by Anabelle Farnham.
