Take a journey of the senses From the Outside In with Lori McAlister, where art, sound, and yoga come together. Feel inspired by colorful envisionings of empathic bodies by artist Saya Woolfalk, the sounds of a live accompanist, and the power of the collective breath and movement. Rediscover your forgotten unity and merge with innate rhythms, energies, and impulses. Enter a flow state and enter a portal into the deepest layers of your humanity.

Yoga in PAFA's Rotunda is a series of three unique offerings led by prominent Philadelphia yoga teachers, each designed to open awareness and survey the body's response to the visual space. Surrounded by the immersive art installation by Saya Woolfalk, We Emerge at the Sunset of Your Ideology, participants will experience yoga that merges the worlds of art, sound, and movement. Every class is open to all levels of yoga experience. Participants must be 18 years and older. Please bring your own yoga mats, props, and water.

The museum will be open after hours for registered participants, from 5:30 - 7:30 pm. Participants are invited come early and stay longer to explore Artists As Cultivators, an exhibition of drawings, paintings, prints, sculpture, and digital installations, selected from PAFA’s permanent collection, that reveal how American artists have cultivated discourse, care, critique, and change by way of engagement with nature.
