Art, yoga, and silence: April’s Fourth Friday’s events

Spring has come and there are many things up and coming (flowers included). Check out the cool stuff happening in downtown Guelph on Friday!

Art Exhibition

Come experience the uniqueness of A Corner Piece art at 10 Carden as a preview for next month”s art workshop featuring Wayne Matthews. The space will be open from 7 pm to 9 pm.

Drop-In Yoga Class

Students of all levels are welcome to join Living Yoga & Health (located at 105 Wyndham St North) in this drop-in class from 5:30 pm to 6:30 pm. The focus is on breathing and moving with awareness through specific warm-ups to open the body in preparation for the yoga poses being taught. Benefits of poses and modifications for different abilities will be offered.

This class reflects the yoga teaching on self-less service, and is often referred to as Karma Yoga. Teachers give freely of their time, and all funds raised through the “pay-what-you-can” (PWYC) donations ($5 to $10 recommended) are given to support charitable needs within our community. Drop-in classes are taught by various teachers.

Music Performance

Live music venue SILENCE presents music from Babel and Ballantyne Harms at 46 Essex Street. This event costs $10 or PWYC (Pay What You Can).

BABEL has been an outlet for the sound experiments and tonal explorations of improviser/composer Jakob Rehlinger since 1999.

Ballantyne Harms is made up of Kitchener musicians Ted Harms and Neil Ballantyne.

About Silence

“Silence is a one-of-a-kind musical space that opened its doors to Guelph almost two years ago. Half-hidden in a quiet suburban neighbourhood, Silence’s exterior is sprinkled with bright colours and stunning graffiti art. A section of the floor serves as the stage, making for an intimate experience between performer and audience. For those with eclectic musical tastes, Silence tends to attract experimental and non-traditional artists and performers. With a pay-what-you-can attitude, this is a welcoming space that was brought to life by Guelph’s generous art community.”
