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.

Since 1979 Clayton Patterson has dedicated his life to documenting the final era of raw creativity and lawlessness in New York City’s Lower East Side, a neighborhood famed for art, music, and revolutionary minds. Traversing the outside edge, he’s recorded a dark and colorful society, from drag to hardcore, heroin, homelessness, political chaos, and ultimately gentrification. His odyssey from voyeur to provocateur reveals that it can take losing everything you love to find your own significance.
