July 1, 2018 - 1:30pm - 3:00pm

It's summer and there are many places to enjoy outdoor yoga and tai chi classes in Milwaukee, but the Lynden Sculpture Garden is unique. Our classes are set among 50 monumental sculptures sited across 40 acres of park, pond, and woodland, and because they are taught by artists, awareness of this environment has become a central part of their teaching practice at Lynden. Heather Eiden moves from yoga asanas to slow looking--at the sculptures at Lynden--as a technique for mindfulness. Angela Laughingheart combines the soft moving sequences of Tai Chi and Qigong with Lynden’s natural setting for an immune system-boosting experience. The class fee includes admission to the sculpture garden for the day.

Wear appropriate clothing and footwear (yoga socks, tai chi shoes, or something similar) for outdoor practice and bring a mat for yoga. Classes move into the sun room in inclement weather.

FEES
The five-class session is $40/$20 members.
Drop-in rate: $12/$7 members

YOGA IN THE GARDEN
Asanas and Art with Heather Eiden
Sundays, 1:30-3 pm - July 1-29, 2018

Find a quiet retreat for the practice of yoga, sheltered from the wind, level and clean, free from rubbish, smoldering fires, and ugliness, where the sound of water and the beauty of the place help thought and contemplation.
- The Upanishads
Over her years at Lynden, Heather Eiden has come to view steady contemplation of sculpture as a mindfulness practice, both restorative and enlivening. Yoga, which means union, refers to the interconnection of mind, body and spirit. Yoga is an ongoing process of discovery, an evolving art, and a pathway to holistic health. In this beginning/intermediate Hatha yoga class, Eiden focuses on mindfulness, centering, and alignment in relation to Lynden’s collection of monumental sculptures as she leads students through asanas (physical postures), pranayama (control of the breath), and relaxation. Eiden calls upon her background as a ceramic artist and art educator to teach slow looking, the act of looking deeply at a work of art. Each class will begin with chai tea, and end with reflective journaling.
