Ruth and Carl J. Shapiro Family Courtyard (130.9)
Ticket Required

Come see the MFA in a new light, with a one-of-a kind experience of a morning yoga practice in the soaring glass Shapiro Family Courtyard, before the Museum opens for the day. Yogis are encouraged to bring their mats, build friendships, and feel the energy of the art that surrounds you. After class, explore the galleries, visit that exhibition you’ve been meaning to catch, or grab a post-workout cup of coffee in the New American Café.

Emily Tevald is the co-founder of Boston’s newest old-school yoga studio, Boston Yoga Union, which she opened with her business partner and friend Tim Kelleher.  Emily believes that a yoga practice is a place to find a quiet strength and grace to carry back out into the world. Her classes offer space for exploration, expansion, and stability to her students. Emily focuses on weaving awareness and joy into intelligent sequencing that is strongly grounded in alignment and breath. At Boston Yoga Union we genuinely love it all; the poses, the philosophy, the hard work; to the mystical, the playlist, the sweat AND the surrender. Our teachers first and foremost consider themselves students; and our collective experience shows us that regular practice of yoga is vital to physical health, emotional wellbeing, and spiritual connectedness. At Boston Yoga Union we believe that yoga is a practice for everyone and we are dedicated to sharing our learning with you!

Doors open at 8:30 am. All attendees must enter through the Huntington Avenue entrance.

All participants will be required to sign waivers upon arrival to event. Yoga mats must be checked at coat check after class if you plan to explore the Museum.
