Organic Yoga - Connecting to yourself and to nature
Saturday 14 May, 09:30
A yoga session to rethink our relationship with nature while promoting our well-being. Permanent exhibition. Saturday 14 May at 9.30 am.
Generally speaking, yoga, from the Sanskrit word for "union", consists of linking the mind, body and soul, thanks in particular to a series of physical, spiritual, mental and breathing exercises and practices. Beyond this inner work, yoga is also about developing a more harmonious and respectful interaction with nature and other beings.
To rethink our relationship with nature in all its manifestations, while promoting the well-being of participants, sequences of postures, or âsana, have been specially designed for the MEG by Michelle Kamerzin (Yoga Lab).
Four dates are proposed from May to August. Each of these sessions is unique, tackles an original theme and takes place in a different space of the Museum: exploration of fluid movements in front of Ange Leccia's work "Mer", a 17-metre long wave that reminds us of the interdependence of the living and the non-living. A special blindfolded session will take place in the MEG Foyer. Another meeting will take place in the Garden for a session with vegetation. The session in the temporary exhibition "Environmental Injustice - Indigenous Alternatives" will be an opportunity to explore the cycles of life and the importance of care.
The session is set to the rhythm of a selection of meditative music chosen from the MEG's Archives internationales de musique populaire (AIMP).
In this first session we will focus our attention on the element of water. We will explore various postures and transitions, establishing a harmony between movement and breath, and then as the practice progresses each person will create their own movements and postures.
11 June from 9:30 to 10:30 in the MEG Foyer
16 July from 9:30 to 10:30 in the garden
6 August from 9.30 to 10.30 am in the temporary exhibition
