Yoga Local NYC has curated this Sunday morning outdoor yoga series for the BMW Guggenheim Lab. Please join us for challenging and inspiring classes from a selection of local yoga studios. The heart of yoga is both physical and mental: residing in the dynamic, living tension created by challenging one’s self to grow while accepting our human limitations. Yoga practice can be seen as the embodiment of the BMW Guggenheim Lab’s mission in New York: confronting comfort. Yoga mats will be provided.

Irena Salina’s award-winning documentary builds a case against the growing privatization of the world’s dwindling freshwater supply with an unflinching focus on politics, pollution, human rights, and the emergence of a domineering world water cartel. Interviews with scientists and activists intelligently reveal the rapidly building crisis, at both the global and the human scale. The film introduces many of the governmental and corporate culprits behind the water arms race, and highlights the people and institutions addressing the problem. All the while, it begs the question “Can anyone really own water?”
Filmmaker Q&A will follow screening
6 pm open seating
