Special Summer Solstice Yoga Session
We welcome you to join us for a special Summer Solstice Yoga session from 8–9 am as we celebrate the second installation of Tempus volat, hora fugit by Christian Sampson.
This second installation of Tempus volat, hora fugit brings additional color to the Conservatory, as Sampson focuses not just on the wall of water-facing east windows, but grows his artwork to encompass windows on the south and west sides of the buildings, allowing for a geometric flooding of colored light from multiple angles. The Summer Solstice marks the first astronomical day of summer in Earth’s northern hemisphere. It is the longest day of the year, when the sun reaches its highest altitude. Sampson has focused on the clerestory windows on the south side of the Conservatory, drawing the eye to the top reaches of the Museum’s architecture.
We will have a relaxing morning of stretching, breathing, meditation, and mindfulness. This “Yoga for All” class, taught by Latreca Ali, is designed for every age and skill set. No previous yoga experience is necessary. Participants are encouraged to move at their own pace and skill set.
Bring a mat or towel. Participants must sign a waiver to participate. Please plan to arrive early as the class will begin promptly at 8 am. Space is limited, so sign-up early to guarantee your spot!
Museum admission not included.
