Colored Vases, 2006-2008 uses Neolithic pottery (5000-3000 B.C.E.), represents a pivotal development in the Chinese artist Ai Weiwei’s exploration of sculpture as a medium for social and political criticism. The garland pose alludes to the shape of the vases and when practicing yoga one can strengthen their mind-body connection which in turn prompts one’s understanding of themselves on a deeper level.
Part of Let Art Inspire, the Museum’s wellness initiative, Artful Movements provides an opportunity to practice a series of gentle yoga poses inspired by artworks in the galleries. These free sessions begin with a deeper look at an artwork, followed by a series of gentle poses and meditation led by Kathleen Leisure Haberstock of School Street Yoga. While we’re closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we’ll bring Artful Movements to you in the safety and convenience of your home.
The session will be appropriate for all yoga levels, families, and children.Wear comfortable clothing that will allow you to stretch.
