The Museum of Fine Arts of Belgium is an undeniable Brussels landmark. Discovering their temporary expositions is a perfect rainy-day getaway, and so is hitting the gift shop (which has a lot of nice art and Belgium-related paraphernalia). I have also been practicing yoga for some time now (not very successfully but there’s still hope…); combining these two interests – art and yoga – seemed like an awesome idea, and thanks to Yoga in the Museum, it can come true.
Yoga in the Museum is an activity offered by the Museum of Fine Arts approximatively once per month. The Museum organises a lunchtime yoga session in a temporary exhibition room. The paintings are incorporated in the practice. For this season, the exhibit room that serves as a yoga studio is Gao Xingjian’s art. The yogis get to channel the masterpieces’ emotions and incorporate it in their yoga session.
They run out places fast, so make sure to register online quickly. I found it to be special to experience and an interesting new way to “visit” the museum. I left feeling zen and inspired after Yoga in the Museum. Namaste.
