Who knew that Matisse, Picasso, Derain and van Gogh were yoga masters as well as groundbreaking Modernist artists? Starting Tuesday, and continuing for four Tuesdays thereafter, Cincinnati Art Museum will hold “Yoga With the Masters” classes from 6-7:15 p.m. in its Modernist galleries, allowing practitioners to stretch and meditate in the after-hours presence of art's 20th Century Modernist greats, who themselves knew a thing or two about how to inventively stretch bodies and change perceptions.
The sessions are led by Katy Knowles, owner of YogaOMe studio, and are among the first in the country set in an art museum's galleries. If one purpose of yoga is to “touch the soul,” this environment should do plenty to help. Each session costs $12; $6 for museum members. Price includes parking.
