Art of Yoga at the AK

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

The yoga and meditation classes are brought to you by BlueCross BlueShield of Western New York and the Albright-Knox Art Gallery.

Sometimes the authors at Buffalo Rising work on collaborative efforts in order to cover various events and stories. These posts can not be attributed to one single author, as it is a combined effort. Often times a formation of a post gets started by one writer and passed along to one or more writers before completion. At times there are author attributions at the end of one of these posts. Other times, “Buffalo Rising” is simply offered up as the creator of the article. In either case, the writing is original to Buffalo Rising.
