Tired of doing downward dogs in an ordinary studio?
The Texas Museum of Science and Technology in Cedar Park is launching a new yoga series that includes classes among fossils, in a planetarium and amid a physics exhibit.
The program, dubbed MuseOm, marks a collaboration between the museum and Trybe Yoga. It begins Friday, Aug. 5.
The classes will rotate monthly between three themes:
- Ohms & Oms: One’s a unit of electrical resistance, the other is an energy-flowing yoga mantra. Together, they describe a yoga class held in the physics exhibit of the museum’s main gallery. It’s scheduled for August, November, February and May.
- Stellar Asanas: The stars always shine in the museum’s planetarium, where this flow class will unfold in September, December, March and June.
- Stretch of Time: Participants will move their mats through fossil-filled galleries depicting life on earth through the ages, ending with some relaxation in the planetarium. It’s scheduled for October, January, April and July.
Classes are scheduled for 8:15 to 9:15 a.m. the first and third Friday of each month. The first Friday class is designed for adults with children; the third Friday class is for ages 12 and up. (For fees, go here.)
The museum is located at 1220 Toro Grande Drive in Cedar Park.
