Kali MaYoga + Art: Kali and Kintsugi

Oct 15, 1-4pm, Columbia Yoga Center, $55
with Kelly Fisher and Roselyn Vanderpool

Kintsugi is the Japanese technique of taking something broken and transforming it into a work of art. Broken things are restored with resin and gold paint so as to highlight and honor the imperfections. Kali is the goddess of destruction who breaks things down in order to reorganize and create something new. Do some yoga, break something, and remake it in your own special way.
