How do you find balance?
That is the question we are asking throughout the museum this spring in honor of 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.
Discounts of 10-25% are available to Rubin Museum members.
Doors at 10:15 a.m. Classes are open to all levels of experience. Please bring a yoga mat. Your ticket includes a free post-class gallery tour of Bodies in Balance: The Art of Tibetan Medicine, and gallery admission for the rest of the day.
Part of Nourish, Practice, Know, a series of events and workshops that explore the power of food, contemplative practice, and life-long learning to help us bring our bodies into balance.
About the Teacher
Bryn Chrisman of Yogamaya has been teaching yoga since 2003. Her teaching is deeply devotional, transportive and transformational. Fun, but far from frivolous, she is known for her entertaining personality and dropping unexpected and salient truths along the path of a creative and challenging asana class, always (usually) set to an inspired soundtrack.
Bryn is a long-time student of Iyengar teachers Carrie Owerko & Kevin Gardiner. Her vinyasa class taps into the beauty and art of movement-based sequences while integrating the texture and subtleties of focused alignment in each asana & purposeful sequencing overall in each class. Deeply drawn to Kirtan and the Bhakti path, Bryn spends her free time singing kirtan with great devotees at RadhaGovinda Mandir and hearing deep philosophy from Dhanurdhara Swami and other devotional teachers & practitioners from the Gaudiya Vaishnava tradition.
After graduation from Tulane University with a dual major in economics and business, she joined the corporate ranks in Washington DC. Less than two years later, she moved to New York City to seek a job in fashion.
After six months in a SoHo boutique, she discovered a yoga studio down the block from her apartment, and she knew instantly that she wanted to be a yoga teacher.
Bryn has led several Teacher Training courses and leads retreats in Mexico, Costa Rica, India, and throughout the world.
