History of Afrikan Yoga - A Special Equinox Lecture with Pablo Imani
Sunday, 22 September 2013 from 17:00 to 19:00 (BST)
Pablo Imani has been the inspiration for the some of Alvin Kofi's newest work (which is currently in development). Join us as we learn more about Afrikan Yoga, the philosophy and the man behind the organisation (AfrikanYoga.com).
Kofi Arts in collaboration with Afrikan Yoga present a special Equinox lecture by renowned Afrikan Yoga practitioner Pablo Imani:
'The History of Afrikan Yoga (Tamare Smai Tawi) - From There to Here'
Pablo will take you on an historical journey exploring the narrative, movement, music, images and postures highlighted in the hieroglyphs of ancient Egypt - providing a template for the health and Yoga postures that we can enjoy today.
The talk will be followed by breathing techniques (Smai Breath Hikau) and meditation for health, life and vitality.
This is a FREE event. Donation to Afrikan Yoga and the work that they undertake in Uganda will be welcome. (www.afrikanyoga.com)
When & Where
At KofiArts we aim to make art and the history and culture behind it, more accessible to a diverse audience through exhibitions, walks, talks, artist's mentoring, workshops, activities and events. Join us on our journey of cultural, historical and artistic exploration.
Alvin Kofi is the driving force behind KofiArts. He established a career in the UK art world as a fine artist in the 1990's, and lead the way in his field by producing The Humble range - the first UK distributed black print collection in 1998. His work has been exhibited internationally in the USA, Europe and the Caribbean. As a fine artist he plays with the human form using a rhythmic bold stylized language that gives his work a distinct and unique contemporary expression.
