Yoga will take place on the second floor of the museum’s Thomas T. Solley atrium or, when weather allows, outdoors on the museum’s sculpture terrace. A Vibe Yoga Studio instructor will lead a one-hour class inviting participants to stretch their minds and bodies as they meditate on the beauty and serenity that surrounds them. Due to the popularity of this program, and in order to maintain a peaceful environment, indoor classes will be capped at twenty-three people. Participants must bring their own mat. We also recommend bringing a water bottle, dressing comfortably, and arriving early as these classes will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis. No registration is required. Yoga at the Eskenazi Museum of Art is made possible in part by Vibe Yoga Studio.

After winning numerous art awards and honors as a boy, it became apparent that Wyatt would pursue a career in the arts. Wyatt’s passion for painting is matched only by his passion to teach. His desire to share his knowledge and skill with students of all ages has led to many teaching opportunities and rewarding experiences as an educator. It is Wyatt’s intent to continue pursuing opportunities as an educator, whether it is in the public school arena, artist workshops or from his own studio.
