Some say that technique is most important when doing yoga. Others say that it’s all about the teacher. Then there are those who feel that it’s all about location, location, location. When it comes to inspirational yoga settings in Buffalo, there are many. But there are some that stand out from the crowd… such as the Albright-Knox Art Gallery.
Could there be a better spot to become one with mind, body, and spirit than on the portico of the gallery? Once again, Power Yoga Buffalo has teamed up with the Albright-Knox to bring about this unusual offering. There will be a one-hour yoga session that will take place on the Elmwood-facing portico, on the following days/times:
|Thursday, March 21||6:30 – 7:30 p.m.||Meditation|
|Thursday, April 18||6:30 – 7:30 p.m.||Revive: Meditation at the Museum|
|Thursday, May 16||6:30 – 7:30 p.m.||Power Yoga|
|Thursday, June 20||6:30 – 7:30 p.m.||Power Yoga on the Portico|
|Thursday, July 18||6:30 – 7:30 p.m.||Meditation|
