Join HCCC for a unique way to experience the new exhibition, A View Within, with a yoga session with Constance Braden of Houston Iyengar Yoga Studio.
Participants are encouraged to arrive 15 – 20 minutes early to view the current exhibitions, and bring their own yoga mats. This event is free and open to the public; however, donations to Iyengar Yoga Studio are much appreciated.
About Houston Iyengar Studio
The Houston Iyengar Yoga Studio has been thriving since 1995, and at 4916 Main Street–next to Lawndale Art Center, and just a bit south of Houston Center for Contemporary Craft–since 2013. Iyengar Yoga is based on the philosophy of the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, an ancient text which details the yogic life of non-violence, truth, practice, and non-attachment. The goal of Patanjali’s philosophy is the quieting of the mind so it can be filled with lucid awareness. Though physically challenging and physically beneficial, Iyengar Yoga is too deeply mindful to be “exercise” in the normal sense. It may begin as a purely physical practice, but other layers—intellectual, moral, spiritual—reveal themselves to the serious practitioner over the long term.
