Art & Healing: Wellness Classes with Ambiente432
Energizing Standing Yoga Poses with Marcia Gossard
Saturday, June 25, 10:00 a.m.-11:00 a.m.
Pavilion Gallery, Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art WSU

Join us for an energizing yoga class with Marcia Gossard at the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art WSU. This class encourages interaction with Ambiente432. Created by the artist and composer Trimpin, the sculpture is comprised of 12 motion-responsive resonator horns suspended from the ceiling and organized in strategic configurations, tuned precisely to 432Hz. Known as Verdi’s ‘A’, this vibration frequency recurs in the tuning of ancient Tibetan singing bowls and Stradivarius instruments, and is thought by many to be a healing frequency. Sessions are drop-in and open to the public. No advance registration required.

Classes are by-donation and all proceeds will go to support humanitarian efforts in Ukraine. WSU Unity of Ukraine founders will be present to say a few words about the healing efforts needed for Ukraine at the start of each class.

Marcia’s class at the museum will combine the tones from Ambiente432 with energizing standing yoga poses. Beginners are welcome. Please bring your own yoga mat and come dressed appropriately for class. Yoga participants will be asked to sign a standard assumption of risk and release of liability form. See below for upcoming classes and Marcia Gossard’s bio.
