The RMG proudly holds the largest collection of art works by Painters Eleven in Canada. Join us each week as yoga instructor Meg Cox connects the artwork to a yoga theme, including:

  • Movement
  • Grounding
  • Balance
  • Wild Spirit

Each yoga class will focus on a work of art and weave details of the piece into the yoga practice, for an art-focused and art-inspired experience. Students will gain appreciation for the art in the gallery as well as enjoy the buzz from an uplifting and creative yoga session.

Together, let’s connect creativity and yoga with an art-inspired yoga series.

“I was attracted by the concept of practicing yoga at an art gallery & I was so pleased & happy that I got to be in Meghyn’s class. She’s knowledgeable, friendly & inspiring. Her class was well timed, challenging but doable & enjoyable. The venue is superb & I am just glad the RMG & Meghyn partnered to make this happen. Attending to any of Meghyn’s classes won’t disappoint you. Cheers.” — Valentina K.

About the Instructor
Meg Cox is based in Oshawa and an active volunteer at the RMG. Her classes are a light­hearted and welcoming environment. She enjoys teaching people who, like her, never thought yoga was something they could practice or enjoy. Cox initially started yoga to help strengthen her back from rowing injuries, but was captivated by the body ­accepting and nurturing nature of the practice. Now, with over 10 years of practice, her knees and back have strengthened and she has a kindness towards her body and life she never thought possible before.

Studying with a variety of teachers around the world, Meg completed her first teacher training in 2014 through the AyurYoga Eco­Ashram in Mysore, India. She has since completed trainings with Yogaworks Yin Yoga with David Kim and attended international yoga conferences with Kathryn Budig, Kia Miller, and Forrest Yoga teacher Sinhee Ye­McCabe.
