AYS Raleigh participating in the City of Raleigh's upcoming exhibit "Beyond Bollywood: Indian Americans Shape the Nation"
Beginning in December, the City of Raleigh Museum will begin offering bimonthly yoga classes in collaboration with local yoga studios as part of the opening of the Smithsonian Institution traveling exhibit entitled, Beyond Bollywood: Indian Americans Shape the Nation. The exhibit is the first national exhibit to celebrate the history and remarkable achievements of Indian Americans in the United States. Every first and third Saturday of the month from December to April the museum will offer yoga classes, varying in style, practice, and technique to showcase the ways in which traditional Indian yoga practices have been molded into a cultural phenomenon here in the United States. For more information about individual classes or attending a session, please stop by the City of Raleigh Museum or contact the museum by phone at (919)-996-2220 email@example.com
AYS Raleigh will be offering a FREE class as part of this event:
Guided Ashtanga Primary Series Practice 11am-12:30pm, Saturday, January 21st, 2017: This is a traditionally counted primary series class. The primary series is the first set of yoga postures, considered most important and foundational, that are taught in traditional Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga. This practice helps practitioners deepen focus inward, learn to extend breath, and is meant to help detoxify and purify the body. It is recommended that students have experience with Ashtanga or Vinyasa yoga before attending this class.
This class will be held on the Main Floor of the City of Raleigh Museum, 220 Fayetteville Street Raleigh, NC
