Quiet: Mindfulness Yoga and Calm Living Meditation 2021
Bend and stretch your way through Brisbane's major art galleries.
Art galleries are places of creativity and tranquility. Each month at the Queensland Art Gallery and the Gallery of Modern Art, they're places for yoga and meditation too. It makes sense — you're in a space known for its peace and quiet, and for contemplation and serenity. Breaking out your best downward dog pose or sitting in mindful silence just seems like a natural thing to do, really.
We don't recommend showing off your flexibility just anywhere, of course. Instead, make a date with QAG and GOMA's Mindfulness Yoga sessions. If you'd prefer chasing zen another way, you will find a chilled atmosphere across both sites in general; however, there are specific Calm Living Meditation classes as well.
The dates change each month, but there's always one yoga session from 8.45–9.45am on a Sunday, another from 6–7pm on a Wednesday, and a meditation class from 7.45–8.45am on a Thursday — giving you the option of starting your day or winding down after work at the galleries.
Taught by Miriam Van Doorn, the classes are open to all skill levels. Sometimes they're held at QAG, sometimes they're at GOMA — so you won't get tired of the scenery.
Bookings are essential. Yoga costs $12 for gallery members and $16 otherwise, while meditation will set you pack either $5 or $11, based on the same category. And classes are socially distanced, obviously.
