Art is the expression of human creative skill and imagination through different forms such as painting or sculpting. Yoga is a Hindu spiritual and ascetic discipline. It is a form of expression and way to practice health and relaxation by tapping into your mind, body, and spirit. Both art and yoga are forms of expression, so why wouldn’t they go hand in hand? Come celebrate and learn about both during the Family Yoga Workshop at Kaneko presented by Kaneko and The Block Yoga and Art Studio. Kaneko is a public non-profit cultural organization that encourages the process of creativity and the impact it has on our lives. Supporting and promoting freedom in creativity is Kaneko’s mission which can be found on their website. This organization has four major programming ideas: Design, Ideas, Performance, and Innovation. The Block Studio is a communal space for anyone and everyone and this organization is all about finding ways for people to heal and find focus and meaning in life through a combination of massage, yoga, and the arts. This event allows participants to receive an introduction to the practices of yoga through solo or group activities, while experiencing art in a whole new way. The WATER exhibit currently on display at Kaneko will provide a tranquil background while families learn the basics of yoga, mindfulness and meditation. The activities will be led by professionals from The Block Yoga and Art Center in Council Bluffs, IA. To register for this event visit the website listed above.
