Come see the MFA in a new light, with a one-of-a kind experience of a morning yoga practice in the soaring glass Shapiro Family Courtyard, before the Museum opens for the day. Yogis are encouraged to bring their mats, build friendships, and feel the energy of the art that surrounds you. After class, explore the galleries, visit that exhibition you’ve been meaning to catch, or grab a post-workout cup of coffee in the New American Café.
Danielle Barmash, our January instructor, says of her practice, "I have been practicing yoga for almost 20 years, and I believe in its transformative power. Yoga gives me space; space to pause, to breathe, to be less reactive and more mindful. Through yoga, I have found a true connection to my body. I practiced for many years at Baptiste studios in Boston. I also took an intensive Hatha Yoga course in Thailand, and I completed my 200-hour yoga teacher training through Prana Power Yoga in May 2015. My classes offer a balance of structure, alignment, space and play. My intention is to guide you toward a deeper awareness of your body, both its strengths and its limitations, knowing they are both impermanent."
Doors open at 8:30am. All attendees must enter through the Huntington Avenue entrance.
All participants will be required to sign waivers upon arrival to event. Yoga mats must be checked at coat check after class if you plan to explore the Museum.
