Louise Nevelson’s Standing Figure (Proud Oriental Figure) is a sculpture made of terracotta, a type of ceramic, and the Eagle yoga pose alludes to its physical form. To create the yoga pose, one must sculpt one’s own body, moulding oneself into an upright posture by crossing arms and legs while standing.
Part of Let Art Inspire, the Museum’s wellness initiative, Artful Movements provides an opportunity to practice a series of gentle yoga poses inspired by artworks in the galleries. These free sessions begin with a deeper look at an artwork, followed by a series of gentle poses and meditation led by Kathleen Leisure Haberstock of School Street Yoga. While we’re closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we’ll bring Artful Movements to you in the safety and convenience of your home.
The session will be appropriate for all yoga levels, families, and children. Wear comfortable clothing that will allow you to stretch.
