Bharatanatyam and Yoga: A Shared Connection

Mon, Apr 19, 5:00 - 6:00pm CDT
Northrop; Live Stream Option available.
FREE and open to the public, registration required.

Aaron Asmundson and Ragamala Dance Company dancer

As an art form, Bharatanatyam demands the conscious understanding of body, mind and spirit; this often translates as the balance of multiple qualities within each movement: strength and flexibility, inner relaxation and focus. Ultimately, both Bharatanatyam and yoga ask the practitioner to find their inner divinity in order to transcend the distractions and obstacles of the physical world.
 
This free, in-person and online workshop begins with an introduction by Ragamala’s Artistic Directors Ranee and Aparna Ramaswamy, followed by an all-levels yoga practice led by Aaron Asmundson, Program Director for Leadership Enrichment Programs at the University of Minnesota. Bring your own yoga mat and wear comfortable clothes--or join from the comfort of your home.
