The Art of Yoga and Meditation at Wâpikwanew: Blossom

Come explore the intersections of art, yoga and meditation! This yoga and meditation class allows you to explore the Wâpikwanew: Blossom exhibit at the Karsh-Masson Gallery (located at City Hall). Participants will be guided through an all levels yoga and meditation practice that encourages them to mindfully engage with art through both movement and stillness, while also embodying the feelings and emotions behind a piece of art in their yoga practice. A fun exploration of art, the body and movement, and mind and spirit. All are welcome! Please bring a yoga mat.

About the exhibit: 

Wâpikwanew means blossom in Nehiyawewin (the Cree language), and blossoms are a form of natural beauty that emerges in the wake of a winter’s sleep. From floral beadwork to ink on eggs, from paint on canvas to birch bark bitings, floral images are a source of symbolism that support self-identification, cultural identity, memory, traditional knowledge and meditation. 

This free event is a partnership between Epic Fitness + Lifestyle and the Karsh-Masson Gallery. Please register through Epic: http://bit.ly/2sk6L3m
