Yogasanas: Mind-Body Alignment (Isha Hatha Yoga) - Isha New York Center,
October 19, 2019 - New York

Yogasanas: The word asana literally means a posture. Out of the innumerable asanas a body can assume, 84 have been identified as Yogasanas, through which one can transform the body and mind into a possibility for ultimate well-being. Yogasanas are not exercises, but rather very subtle processes to manipulate one's energy in a particular direction. In an untrained state, the human body is a constant manifestation of various levels of compulsiveness. By consciously forming the body into a certain posture, one creates a conducive passage for energy flow that can elevate one's consciousness. Yogasanas are a way of aligning the inner system and adjusting it to the celestial geometry, thereby becoming in sync with the existence and naturally achieving a chemistry of healthfulness, joyfulness, blissfulness, and above all, balance. The practice of Yogasanas provides countless benefits including: - Relief of chronic health conditions - Evolution of body and mind towards a higher possibility - Stabilization of the body, mind, and energy system - Deceleration of the aging process

PAPER BORDERS - International Print Center New York
Through December 18, 2019 - New York

International Print Center New York is pleased to announce its first two-person exhibition, Paper Borders, which brings into dialogue the works of Emma Nishimura (b. 1982, Toronto) and Tahir Carl Karmali (b. 1987, Nairobi), artists who share a commitment to unearthing historical and ongoing stories of migration, trans-generational memory, and xenophobia. Using the materiality of print and handmade paper, the two- and three-dimensional works in this exhibition speak to cross-cultural and deeply embedded global struggles. Here, the precarity of paper becomes a metaphor for the precarity of place.
