How to find inner peace in our busy lives? Reconnect your mind and body through a series of creative movement and art exercises in this workshop.
Our bodies and minds are closely connected, and through relaxing and loosening up our bodies, we can give ourselves more space to create, think and feel. In this workshop, art educator and yoga and mindfulness instructor Lau Tin Ming will guide you through exploring your body’s potential, breaking away from your usual habits of moving and challenging you to think differently about your own body. Through a series of playful movement-based exercises, you will use different body parts and body languages to express yourself, respond to some abstract concepts and interact with others creatively. As you move through different spaces of the museum, this experience will enhance your awareness: you will find yourself more engaged and be able to feel your surroundings and the works in the galleries with your body and mind.
This is part of a series of three Wellbeing Workshops at M+ that focus on the body and the mind – themed seeing, feeling and breathing – inviting you to create room for yourself and embark on a journey of contemplation and meditation. Through a variety of art and museum experiences, you will be guided to tune yourself to the present, become aware of your thoughts and feelings, and recharge your physical and mental batteries. No prior experience in artmaking or mindfulness is required to participate.
