Here’s How Yoga is Made Better With Art

October 19, 2015

Instructor Tori Lunden, known for her lighthearted Vinyasa classes, leads students through an hour of mind-body-soul stretches in a new section of the gallery every two weeks, with this fall’s session beginning amidst an exhibition of Alberta artist Chris Cran’s work, entitled "Sincerely Yours." For a $10 drop-in fee, you, too, can do triangle pose, happy baby and pigeon while admiring some of Canada’s best artwork (case in point: Cran’s large-scale technicolour pop-art portraits). Classes are on each Thursday until November 15th, with all levels of yogic experience welcome.

Om plus art equals perfection. —Miranda Post
