SAM Body & Mind

Mar 25 2023

Olympic Sculpture Park

Grounds and Pavilion

9 AM – 1 PM

Restore and reconnect with yourself through movement and art with SAM Body & Mind. Join us in the Olympic Sculpture Park Pavilion on the fourth Saturday of each month this winter for yoga, sound bowl performances, and art activities hosted by local community partners.

9–10 am: Yoga by Take Care Yoga

Many of us are lucky if we can afford an hour of our day to take care of ourselves. Participate in a 60-minute Vinyasa flow focused on building strength, balance, flexibility, and heart. All levels are welcome. Yoga mats and other exercise materials will not be provided. Please bring a water bottle, a yoga mat, and any other items necessary for your practice. Take Care Yoga is a community hub based on progress, never perfection. A yoga studio born from the goal of creating a diverse community, where we can learn from each other and grow together. We keep it simple: Good Yoga. Good people. Take Care Yoga.

10:30-11:30 am: Sound Bowl Performance by Biom

Biom is sharing a one hour experience of sound healers playing in concert. Biom uses sound, plant, and light therapy to help clear the mind, release stressful energy, and reach a deep meditative state. All of the instruments are acoustic, using the resonance of crystal bowls and metal gongs to wash your body with waves of healing frequencies. The vibrations help to loosen up stagnant energy throughout the body which can relieve tension. Biom is a studio space located in Seattle's International District.

Noon-1 pm: Art Activity by The Feels

For SAM Body & Mind, The Feels is creating an art activity focused on self reflection. The activity will be inspired by the artwork in the park and will encourage artists to tune in to how they feel and showcase these feelings in an artistic and beautiful way. The Feels Foundation is developing projects and initiatives, at the intersection of art and community to create economic opportunities for creatives; encourage confidence and support academic achievement for our youth; promote cultural pride while breaking down cultural barriers; and develop spaces for community building and engagement. With a focus on racial equity, we fund, support, and advocate for arts and culture through creative expression and education. We’re committed to continuing our model of being an accessible, low barrier community organization that amplifies emerging artists from traditionally overlooked backgrounds.

All programming is free and accessible to all. No tickets are required. Space is limited so all activities will function on a first-come, first-served basis. SAM Body & Mind will take place from 9 am–1 pm on February 25, March 25, and April 29.

Seattle Art Museum respectfully acknowledges that we are on Indigenous land, the traditional territories of the Coast Salish people. We honor our ongoing connection to these communities past, present, and future.
