Sunday Morning Yoga and Brunch at Nuba in Kits - June 30

 Join us at Nuba on Sunday, June 30 for Morning Yoga and Brunch with Whit Hornsberger of Soul Arch Yoga. Yoga will take place from 10:30am till 11:30am with a healthy, vegan and gluten-free brunch to follow.

 

About Whit Hornsberger Whit discovered yoga after tearing his ACL in his final year playing basketball for the University of Calgary. It was a devastating end to his athletic career as he’d always dreamed of playing professionally. That disappointing turn of events led to a two-and-a-half-year global journey of self-inquiry and introspection. His teaching style derives from that inquiry and is laden with the Buddhist teachings of mindfulness and compassion that were paramount to his healing. As a teacher, his intention is to create an experiential learning environment, whereby everyone feels welcomed and accepted. For only when we accept ourselves exactly as we are, can we then begin to change. Whit looks forward to meeting you on the mat! www.soularchyoga.ca   Brunch Menu This healthy, gluten-free, and vegan wake-up plate includes Mjadra (lentil stew with crispy onion), avocado, sautéed spinach, mushroom, and peppers. Served with potatoes and tomato. A non-vegan option includes Dukkah crusted eggs and house made lamb bacon.   Brunch includes your choice of 6oz fresh juice or coffee or tea.   Cost $25 per person (Vegan) $30 per person (Meat)   Reservation and 50% deposit required.

Safar/Voyage: Contemporary Works by Arab, Iranian and Turkish Artists at The Museum of Anthropology

 Be sure to stop by the Museum of Anthropology at some point between now and September 15th to check out Safar/Voyage. This is the first major exhibition of contemporary art from the Middle East to be shown in Vancouver. Featuring 16 artists, their diverse artworks speak to the universal theme of voyage (a translation of the Persian safar), from the external and geographical to the internal, emotional, and existential. They acknowledge the realities of political turmoil and revolution, and how politics frames both trauma and desire, whether individual or collective. Voyage is seen to take many forms. Expressed in media ranging from painting, sculpture, and video installation to performance and a carpet. It is as innocuous as tourism (with a twist), as disturbing as war, and as philosophical as the transience of life. The artists of Safar/Voyage are positioned as our guides, their visions mined for reflections on some of the most urgent issues of our time.   Visit the Museum of Anthropology website for more details and exhibition hours.   Everyone who attends Safar/Voyage will be given a voucher for a free juice or veggie mezze at Nuba (with purchase). You can also enter to win passes to Safar/Voyage at all Nuba locations.
