How do you find balance?
Yoga Class with Elena Brower of VirayogaRubin Museum of Art (RMA) (150 West 17th Street, New York, NY 10011) Map it $20
That is the question we are asking throughout the museum this spring through the exhibition, Bodies in Balance: The Art of Tibetan Medicine. We offered the query to some of our favorite yoga teachers who hail from studios in our Chelsea neighborhood and beyond. They each created a yoga class in response. Come experience yoga as a tool for finding balance, strength and flexibility, not only in your body, but in your mind and spirit, as well.
Mama, founder and co-owner of VIRAYOGA, and co-author of Art of Attention, Elena Brower has taught yoga for 16+ years. After graduating from Cornell University in 1992 with a design degree, she worked as a textile and apparel designer for 6 years, and has studied with master yoga teachers for over 10 years. Through her teaching, influenced by several traditions including alignment-based Hatha and Kundalini yoga, Elena offers yoga as a way to approach our world with realistic reverence and gratitude. Her classes are a masterful, candid blend of artful alignment and attention cues for your body, mind and heart.
From the Museum of Modern Art to the Great Lawn at Central Park, from the playa at Burning Man to the Eiffel Tower, Elena is honoured to offer larger-scale experiences of yoga, but her true service is in shifting awareness within the smallest interactions; one family, one household at a time. She’s been featured in the New York Times, Yoga Journal, Element Yoga for Beginners DVDs, ABC News and NBC News.
