Health & Wellness Events


With the return of Black White Blue Yellow (BWBY), the immersive four-channel video and sound installation by artist Steven Yazzie, the Heard Museum is teaming up with Rooted Community Yoga Project for a special opportunity for visitors to practice yoga in the exhibit. The in-gallery yoga experience will be held on the second and fourth Saturday of each month, starting July 29 through October 14. The yoga sessions will be closed off for one hour from 9:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. in the Jacobson Gallery. All levels of experience and ages are welcome.

Black White Blue Yellow explores the four sacred mountains that border the Diné/Navajo people:

  • BLACK(North): Dib’e Nitsaa/Hesperus Mountain
  • WHITE(East): Peak/Sisnaajini /Blanca Peak
  • BLUE(South): Tsoodzil Mount Taylor/south
  • YELLOW(West): Dookʼoʼoosłíí/San Francisco Peaks 

The exhibition is a journey and departure to sacred land and space, the source of cultural continuities: indigenous knowledge, mystery, discovery, fear, connection and exploitation by contemporary societies. BWBY is a culmination of video and sound documentation that will bring the viewer into the complexities of these geographies in a temporal conceptual experience, designed to touch on the mountain’s symbolic nature residing deep within our human memory.

Yoga is free with museum admission and free to members. Yogis will receive 2-for-1 admission for attending yoga classes. Each class is limited to 30 people. To reserve your space and learn more about the yoga experience and exhibit, visit here.
