The Wichita Art Museum now is offering monthly yoga sessions after a successful experiment in May.
Like other art museums across the country — including those in Baltimore, Cincinnati and New York — the Wichita Art Museum invited yoga novices and enthusiasts earlier this summer to stretch out among its artwork in a class in the Farha Great Hall under Dale Chihuly’s “Confetti” chandelier.
“We had such a good response with the first class, we thought we would try and continue the class,” Debbie Deuser, museum membership manager, said.
Classes are scheduled from 8:30 to 9:45 a.m. on the second Saturday of each month through November, with the first one being this week. Arrive at the museum, 1400 W. Museum Blvd., early for a prime spot.
“If attendance maintains or increases, then we will continue them past November,” Deuser said. “If attendance is really good and the instructor is on board, then we will look at the possibility of expanding.”
The first class had 20-plus participants, but the museum can accommodate double that, she said.
“Anyone can participate,” Deuser said. “Bring your own mats, and stop by the cafe after for a healthy smoothie.”
Cost for the class is $10. For more information, call 316-268-4912.
