New Year Reflections
Magazzino Italian Art Foundation and Ascend Yoga Studio partnered to present an afternoon of yoga, art and self-reflection with renowned yogi, teacher and author Elena Brower. All proceeds from event ticket sales went to RxArt, a nonprofit organization whose mission is to help children heal through commissioning contemporary artists to transform healthcare facilities into engaging and inspiring environments. In a marriage of art and mindfulness, Ascend and Magazzino will host this event on Saturday, January 5th, 2019 from 3:00-5:00 p.m.
Led by Elena Brower, yoga students explored methods for charting a personal course in the new year – one founded on physical, mental and emotional alignment. Participants received a copy of Practice You, Brower’s bestselling book, to be used for crafting new paths for our practices, more empowered relationships with ourselves and a deeper appreciation for the world around us. From alignment to flow, meditation to a deep restoration, participants felt recalibrated and revitalized by this unique experience.
Community-based yoga studio Ascend offers yoga and Pilates classes and organizes events, workshops and festivals. Magazzino and Ascend were thrilled to collaborate to help Cold Spring residents celebrate music, art, yoga, mindfulness, community, and health.
