Feel refreshed and rejuvenated! Join the Lyman Allyn for a 5-week virtual meditation and yoga series inspired by our current exhibit, Encountering Resonance: Aaron Taylor Kuffner’s Gamelatron.
Set to the melodic sounds of Kuffner’s site-specific kinetic sculptures, participants will be introduced to fundamental meditation practices as well as yoga techniques suitable for all levels, beginners included!
To lead participants through this unique series, the Lyman Allyn has partnered with Trish Rayburn from Blisswork Yoga and Healing Arts and Amy Zazulka from Mystic Yoga Shala.
Every Monday, our Education Department will email new videos to those registered for the series. The videos will be available for download and can be used repeatedly in the comfort of your home. Participants may also practice learned meditation skills in the Gamelatron galleries. The soothing atmosphere among the art offers the perfect space for inspiration and reflection.
Registration is required for the series.

Trish Reyburn is the owner and director of Blissworks Yoga & Healing Arts, LLC, established in 2004 in New London, Connecticut.. After dealing with the symptoms of of Rheumatoid Arthritis and Lupus, Trish decided to explore the field of natural healing and now is since 25 years symptom-free! She took her first yoga class in 1995 and then explored different types of yoga and yoga teachers until she found her niche in an alignment-based practice. She received her first yoga certification from the Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health in 2000 and was certified Anusara-Inspired in 2009. Although based in alignment, Trish’s classes range from challenging to slow and contemplative. She shares from everyday life experiences and relates them to the highest teachings of yoga. Trish believes that yoga is an empowering practice that can help anyone advance on their path to self-knowledge. It is not important the level of poses that one achieves, but rather the attitude one cultivates wherever they may find themselves.
