Mindfulness and Meditation Tuesdays, May 14, and 28, 2024, 12-12.45 PM EST

Join us for a centering practice of meditation inspired by the teachings of yoga and mindfulness-based stress reduction techniques. These meditations are free for all and are sponsored by Smithsonian's National Museum Of Asian Art.

Art has the power to move us deeply and when combined with the practices of meditation and mindfulness could help us explore these inner experiences from the place of a witness. Each week, our meditation practice is inspired by a work of art from the museum’s permanent collection. The meditation will be followed by a spotlight talk by Donna Jonte, Manager of  Art and Wellness, The Phillips Collection .

Online Restorative Yoga @ Yoga District, Sunday, 2.45-3.45 PM

Restorative yoga involves the practice of meditative poses in which the body is supported with props and held for extended periods of time. We’d be using yoga blocks, blankets, bolster and strap.

 

You can easily substitute these with: shoe boxes, hardcover books, extra firm pillows for blocks; cord, belt, sarong, detachable purse strap for yoga strap; rolled up yoga mats and pillows for bolster. Additional support can be brought in using a light-weighted chair and wall.

 

 This practice emphasizes conscious relaxation, thereby facilitating calm, restfulness that helps regenerate our mind-body.

Online Yoga Nidra @ Yoga District, Sunday, 4-5 PM

The class applies guided meditation techniques, breath awareness, guided imagery to enter Yoga Nidra, or yogic sleep, as an ancient meditation to transform, heal, transcend and inspire. Typically you can set an intention toward yourself to help keep the mind centered and focused, but you can also just come and get relaxed and happy!
