Join Shreya for a relaxing Hatha Yoga practice and the celebration of ancient tradition surrounded by the work of artist Mulyana. The class will take place in Ocean Wonderland(2019), one of Mulyana’s most comprehensive installations. We will explore all aspects of yoga – from gratitude exercises, pranayama (breath work), and asana (exercises), to traditional meditation to relieve stress and cultivate inner peace. Come as you are, no experience is needed. Yoga mats will be provided. Space is limited. Registration is required.

Hosted by the USC Office of Religious and Spiritual Life (ORSL).

 

About the installation:

Ocean Wonderland (2019), depicts a celebratory vision of the ocean habitat that includes many plant and animal life forms. A school of thousands of yellow and orange felt fish is suspended above an underwater landscape of coral reefs, creatures, and a life-size whale. With his work, Mulyana intends to appeal to our collective consciousness and instill a sense of urgency about climate change. His focus on sustainability is evident in all aspects of his studio practice. He maximizes all of his resources by recycling foam and fillers, using repurposed yarn, and acquiring overstocked art materials

About the instructor:

Shreya Ranganathan is a certified Hatha Yoga instructor and senior Journalism student at USC Annenberg. Ranganathan fell in love with Hatha practices when she traveled to India for the first time, and they helped her find light in darker situations. Shreya’s philosophy is that yoga should be a practice for everyone, regardless of race, class, and other barriers that have historically prevented BIPOC communities from participating. Ranganathan believes in yoga storytelling with the heart, the head, the mind, the spirit, and the breath. Through a holistic and authentic approach, true to ancient scriptures such as Patanjali Yoga Sutras and The Bhagavad-Gita, she hopes to change the stigma surrounding yoga and assist her peers on their journeys of healing.
