Healing through Art with Esther Gokhale

Date:     Saturday, May - 21, 2016
Time:    12 pm - 2 pm
Location:   200 Larkin Street, Asian Art Museum, San Francisco

Human beings are natural mimics. We copy what we see around us and unfortunately, posture in modern cultures has been deteriorating over the last 100 years. We can overcome this obstacle toward living our best lives by learning to treat our bodies as the natural wonders that they are. Join Esther Gokhale at the Asian Art Museum as we uplift ourselves, both physically and figuratively, by identifying patterns and mimicking the posture of ancient art and sculpture throughout the gallery collection. SACHI invites you  to explore Hindu, Buddhist and Jain artworks in the Asian Art Museum galleries for a novel posture and wellness workshop.

Fees:  $25.00 plus museum admission;  Limited to 20 participants
