Spring 2013 Community Programs
Community Yoga Workshop
Please join us for multi-level yoga classes (appropriate for beginners to advanced students) designed to bring mind, body, and spirit into alignment. This is a hatha yoga class. Introduced by Yogi Swatmarama, a sage of 15th century India, traditional Hatha Yoga represents opposing energies: hot and cold (fire and water, following similar concept as yin-yang), male and female, positive and negative and attempts to balance mind and body via asana (poses), pranayama (breath control), and the calming of the mind through relaxation and meditation. Please wear comfortable clothing and bring a mat. Email us for additional information »
Suggested $5 admission fee for instructor.

Reception for Asian Roots / American Soil
This reception recognizes our current exhibitions Asian Roots / American Soil: Photographs of Corky Lee, which was recently profiled in the New York Times, and Chee Wang Ng’s Five Elements: Six Roots Contemplate Origins in the Spoon-Fed World. Part of the tenth anniversary season of the Charles B. Wang Center and our celebration of Stony Brook University’s Asian American Heritage Month. Please join us, meet the artists, and enjoy some light refreshments.
This reception extends our celebration of Asian American heritage at Stony Brook University by honoring student winners of our Eye On Asian Pacific American photography contest. Judged by Corky Lee, this contest asks Stony Brook students to document Asian and Asian American life and culture. Asian and Asian American students, faculty, and staff are an important part of our campus community, and it is our privilege to exhibit these explorations of their lives, experiences, and cultures.
