Art After Dark: Yoga—the Art of Being

March 26 6:00 am - 7:30 pm

LCVA hosts upcoming Art After Dark: Yoga—the Art of Being

Join Cosima Smith at the LCVA on Tuesday, March 26th at 6:00 for a yoga class and discussion about the practice of yoga. This program is completely free of charge and open to the public.
No prior yoga experience required. Be sure to wear clothing for movement and bring a yoga mat.

When asked about the workshop, Cosima stated this program will be a chance for guests “to accept and examine the self through mindful movement, bringing awareness to the breath, the body, the mind, and all their interactions. We will work on developing a non-judgmental attitude toward the body, and lean into the teachings of Vedic tradition. In the discussion portion, we will talk about Yoga as a method of artistic living, the ways Americans (and the West at large) have co-opted and transformed Yogic practice, and touch on the intimacies of a developing Yoga practice.”

Cosima Smith is a Farmville native with 15+ years of experience practicing yoga. From an early age, their natural flexibility drew them to the practice long before their collegiate studies led them to India. After college, they returned to Dharamsala, India to study Yoga anatomy, practice, and philosophy with Indian teachers who were raised and grew within the tradition. Cosima notes that “yoga is all about recognition and exploration—the ability to dive deeper into the self, lean into our interpersonal relations, and offer our support to our community.”

Art after Dark replaces the formal lecture format normally associated with museums with interdisciplinary activities. The evening gatherings have a relaxed atmosphere that encourages engaging conversation.
