Join us for an in-person all-ages participatory adaptive yoga class inspired by Robin Arseneault's exhibition 'Falling Off The Log'

About this event

Yoga and movement specialist Sharon Cavanagh will lead participants in a chair yoga experience inspired by, and surrounded by, sculptures and drawings featured in Robin Arseneault’s exhibition, Falling Off The Log. Participants of all ages and abilities are welcome to move together as we appreciate and celebrate our differences and similarities, embracing our imperfect bodies as they are.

This program will take place while Esker Foundation is closed to the public. We recommend that you wear clothing that is comfortable to move in. No supplies or experience required, but you may bring a yoga mat for optional movement off the chair if you would like.

The Atlantic Avenue Art Block building- where Esker Foundation is located- is mobility-device accessible, and the gallery has a single-stall accessible washroom.

All-ages workshop. Families, children and youth are welcome.

Registration essential. Please note that participants must review and acknowledge the Accident Waiver and Release of Liability Form: https://eskerfoundation.com/assets/AccidentWaiverAdaptiveChairYoga2022.pdf
