Bliss out at the opening party for the world's first major art exhibition about yoga
First introduced to the West in the mid 19th century, Yoga has since become a hugely popular means of physical and spiritual well being for millions of practitioners. Especially here in San Francisco, you’d be hard pressed to spend more than half an hour in the city without walking past a sweatpanted enthusiast with a foam mat slung over his or her shoulder. Yoga isn’t just some trendy way to stay in shape, though, it has an incredibly complex history stretching back thousands of years with a rich tradition in theory, philosophy and art. At the Asian Art Museum, enjoy this first ever major West Coast exhibition of the art of Yoga, with works dating from the 2nd century all the way up to today, including sculpture, illustration and film. Click the link above to win tickets to the opening night party, with DJs and a chance to stretch out in one of the galleries at a class led by Amanda Giacomini and MC Yogi.
Take a deep breath and dance the night away with MC Yogi, DJ Drez and DJ Sol Rising. Not your speed? Stretch out in a 60-minute yoga class earlier in the evening (for an additional $10). Either way, be the first to see the exhibition that The New York Times called “immensely pleasurable.” AcroYoga, Non Stop Bhangra with Dholrhythyms, gallery tours, storytelling, complimentary sips by Laughing Glass Cocktails, and cash bars make this a feel-good party for the body and soul.
