Yoga at the Miró

Yoga series linked with Miró's work

From an early age, Joan Miró aspired to become a universal artist. Around 1920, he embarked on a path linked to a spirituality that would always remain with him. His interest in Taoism and the influence of Zen philosophy are present in Miró's work and in his worldview. The merging of the natural world and his inner self, a progressive stripping down of elements on the canvas, an understanding of emptiness, and the communion of painting and writing are all elements that tie into the essence of yoga.

Bearing in mind this spiritual sense that is so relevant to Miró's work, the Fundació is offering Yoga at the Miró, a series of sessions combining yoga with observations about works related to the seven levels of awareness in yoga. Participants will be able to view Miró's work as a path from the material to the absolute. Every week, two sessions will be devoted to each one of these levels of awareness and to a related piece by Miró: material awareness, creative awareness, life awareness, awareness of unity, communicative awareness, observational awareness and absolute awareness.

Fridays and Saturdays, from 6:30 to 8:30 pm
July, September and October 2020

In collaboration with:

Creative Awareness: Woman and birds at sunrise

Miró was disdainful of permanence. There is an ongoing sequence of themes and cycles in his work. A spot on a canvas or a stain on a sheet of paper could be the point of departure for the next piece. The first part of the session includes a visit to the Joan Miró collection and a reflection about creative awareness based on Woman and birds at sunrise; the second part involves practicing a series of asanas (physical exercises).

Life Awareness: The gold of the azure

The session will include a visit to the Joan Miró collection in the first part, reflecting on life awareness in front of The gold of the azure, and a second part with a session of asanas (yoga poses) led by a YOGA ONE instructor in the North Patio at the Fundació.
