Asian Art Museum Yoga Exhibition

On my 45th birthday this weekend I visited the Yoga exhibition and attended a lecture in Yoga as Science I was inspired to create both a restorative and an intro to yoga sequence focusing on the midline. This sequencing focus was from my learning at the lecture that yoga is about yoking - bringing opposites together into a whole. The midline is the vertical centerline of the body and we explored in the classes how to bring our left and right sides of our body parallel to, towards, away-from, across and on the midline. This balancing of the body allows for balancing of the breath and the focusing of the mind: Asana, Pranayama and Meditation.
