The Museum of Contemporary Art Australia (MCA) is set to inspire mind, body and soul this season with a new Spring Yoga Series on its rooftop Sculpture Terrace from October 15 to January 28, in partnership with lululemon athletica.
Every Thursday evening, as part of the MCA's late-night program, Sydney-siders and out-of-town visitors will be invited to soak up the setting sun and panoramic views of the Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge and join a free 45-minute, all levels Vinyasa yoga class hosted by lululemon athletica. This fun, lighthearted practice will be accessible to beginners while providing enough challenge for seasoned yogis.
After the class, participants will be able to linger on the Terrace, relax with live music from Sydney DJs and a bite to eat at the MCA Café, participate in hands-on creative workshops or head down to the MCA Galleries to immerse themselves in world-class contemporary art.
Exhibitions on display at that time will include MCA Collection, Aleks Danko: MY FELLOW AUS-TRA-ALIENS (until October 18), Primavera 2015: Young Australian Artists and Matthys Gerber (22 September – 6 December), Grayson Perry: My Pretty Little Art Career as part of the Sydney International Art Series (ticketed, 10 December – 1 May), Being Tiwi and Mikala Dwyer: MCA Collection (21 December – 21 February).
Museum of Contemporary Art Australia Director, Elizabeth Ann Macgregor OBE, said: “We're always looking at ways to creatively engage with new audiences and introduce them to contemporary art. This Spring Yoga Series will offer visitors a truly memorable experience: a spectacular setting boasting the best views in town, expert yoga teachers and a chance to get up close and personal with world-class contemporary art. And all of it is free – what's not to like!”

• Eion Finn, Blissology (travelling to Australia as a special guest of Wanderlust Sunshine Coast)
