Inspired: Gallery Yoga

Yoga Peach recently ran this photo of Yoga in the Galleries, an offering at the Blanton Museum of Art at The University of Texas at Austin.

I always feel like a gallery is its own kind of sacred space, so this type of pairing makes sense to me. New York has offered gallery classes in the past at the MoMA and at theBrooklyn Museum‘s Vishnu exhibit last year. So this is certainly not a new idea. But why not a persistent one?

Here is Elena Brower practicing at the Pipilotti Rist “Pour Your Body Out” installation in 2009.

So absolutely beautiful. Do you think the art distracts from the practice or adds to it?

This is where I found the video, along with a small review of the event.

  1. I believe doing yoga in this kind of setting provides a whole different experience. Its clearly entertaining and beautiful but one can easily lose the mindfulness aspect of the asana practice. I imagine if you could lose the focus on the surroundings and just flow in the space without being distracted it could be terrific.
