Weekly Yoga in the Gallery

January 12th, 2016

Was your New Year’s resolution to improve your health and see more art? Starting January 21, enjoy yoga in the gallery and expand your mind, body and creativity with weekly yoga practice in the Isabel McLaughlin Gallery, led by local yoga instructor and RMG Volunteer Meg Cox.

Join us for a six ­week session and grab a glimpse of the works on display while centering and relaxing the body and mind. Classes are suitable for all levels. Sessions will begin with introductory poses, mindfulness and breathing techniques. Make your health a convenient habit in 2016!

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.
