Jane Marsching, former E&E artist-in-residence and professor at MassArt is partnering with E&E PhD candidate Sarabeth Buckley and Professional Yoga Instructor Meredith Sills for an evening of Yoga for the Climate on our BU Rooftop Carbon Farm. Join us for yoga for the climate on a rooftop at BU where we are experimenting with spinach grown with exhalations of CO2 from breathing buildings and human lungs inside them. What is yoga for the climate? Is it poses that reach for the sky, poses that help us process fear, poses that are challenging and strengthening for times ahead, poses that create lightness, airiness, and make us feel like molecules floating through the atmosphere? Is it breath practices that focus on our interconnectedness with all things? Is it meditating on our bodies, minds, and hearts as links between soil and climate? Meredith Sills, yoga instructor, will lead us through 45 minutes of poses and a 15 minute guided meditation. Bring your own yoga mat if you can, as well as a water bottle. Arrive at 5:45 to prepare yourself for the class. We'll have some time after the class to learn about Carbon Farm, meet the scientists, artist, yogi, and each other. RSVP to by October 8. Limited to 20 people.
