Art, Creativity, and Yoga

Kimberly Wilson, director and founder of Tranquil Space, recently taught two inspiring chair yoga sessions during Phillips after 5. Kicking off their shoes in the galleries, visitors of all ages and experience levels participated; they stretched their creativity and focused on the beauty of the art in the museum and around them and in their daily lives.

The classes were designed to complement the evening’s theme:  Spirituality in Art. The program also featured a live video remix by artist Robin Bell and tea tastings by Silence Tea. 2011 marks the 100th anniversary of Wassily Kandinsky‘s seminal treatise Concerning the Spiritual in Art, which served as the inspiration for the night’s events.
