What’s better than experiencing the work of Mexico’s iconic artist couple? Experiencing it after a calming yoga session, when all your senses are alert. On September 9, an expert yoga teacher will guide you in connecting with yourself through the gentle practice of mindfulness. During the 2-hour session, you’ll awaken the yogi inside of you and experience a private walk through the Mexican Geniuses show — bridging the physical with the mental and spiritual.
Bluebird Sky Yoga will be guiding you through the immersive yoga practice. As you breathe consciously, Frida and Diego’s pieces will be swirling gently around you, helping you dive deeper into the present moment. All levels are welcome to the yoga practice, as it is focused on relaxation. The session will even include a meditation that will reset your body and mind to fully take in the Mexican Geniuses’ work.
Once you get off your mat, a private viewing of the Mexican Geniuses show awaits. Dedicated to Frida & Diego’s artwork, the exhibit will immerse you in the artists’ paintings using 360-degree technology and an enveloping sound system. Explanations and details on the legendary couple will take you to distant lands, bringing you closer to Frida & Diego’s work and lives than ever before. And if you’re up for a surprise, the next section of the exhibit will blow you away: taking you on a VR journey to Mexico, while you stay right here in D.C.
Note: Bring your own mat to ensure you have proper gear. Bring water and dress in yoga-appropiate clothing.
