Join yoga instructor, Vicki Rodriquez, select Saturdays for an 1.5-hour yoga session in our Mayer Gallery overlooking downtown Boone. All skill levels are welcome and mats can be provided if you don't own one.
Registration begins at 10:15am.
The word Yoga comes from the ancient language, Sanskrit. It literally translates to the word yoke. The practice of yoga is intended to yoke or join the mind, body, and spirit. There are many branches of yoga that move toward achieving this goal. In this class we engage in a body-centered yoga practice where we move our bodies into poses (asanas) and become observers to our experience. By offering up the mind and body to the experience we allow ourselves to touch upon the truth within. We learn to be fully in the moment by focusing on our breath. The results of this practice tend to be strength, flexibility, wisdom, and ease.
We are fortunate to be able to be a part of this ancient lineage in the contemporary setting of the Turchin Center for Visual Arts. At play is the integration of the old and the new as well as the inspiration of the ever-changing exhibitions. These concepts illustrate the very nature of Yoga.
