Based on the Feldenkrais® Method of Somatic Education

Feldenkrais® at the Denver Art Museum

UNPLUGGED: Mindful Movement & Self-Image
4-6 pm, Friday, March 15
Free with museum admission

Wind down your week in the galleries with Unplugged, a program that explores different ways to turn down the tempo and step into a state of relaxation, reflection, and calm. In March, enjoy mindful movement in Jordan Casteel: Returning the Gaze.

How do you see yourself? How do others see you?
With Jordan Casteel’s portraits as our inspiration, we'll explore these questions and our self-image through mindful movement sequences with Feldenkrais® practitioner Joan Pacos Jordan. These gentle, meditative movements are designed to connect body and mind, helping you perceive unknown aspects of yourself. You’ll never look at art, or yourself, the same way again.
Please wear comfortable clothing; yoga mats and chairs will be provided.
