How To Be A Bird - Yoga for Families at Leeds Art

How To Be A Bird - Yoga for Families at Leeds Art

Details

Taking the Holden exhibition as a basis, this family yoga workshop explores what it might be like to be a bird.

Learn how to use the ancient practice of yoga to focus and find your inner feathered friend – balance like a Flamingo, spread your arms wide like an Hawk, or fly like a Crow. 

Looking at movement and shapes, we'll investigate what it might be like to be a bird and our differences as human beings; what we do differently, how we stand differently, and why we use our bodies to move the way we do. 

Working in a group, we can jump, and hop, and squawk and flap, and using yoga principles of mindfulness and breathing get an understanding our own bodies, finding ways to explore and use them more adventurously.
