Auguste Rodin is famous for the way he captured "movement" in his sculpture. To do that, he had live models walk around his studio as he sketched, so he could capture the accurate movement of the body. Now on view is Auguste Rodin: The Human Experience | Selections from the Iris & B. Gerald Cantor Collectionsand the exhibition’s many sculptures that celebrate the body has inspired the museum to hold a series of six yoga classes, Nov. 13 to Jan. 6, led by Heidi Hopkins of Aloha Kula Yoga in Kailua.

Each class begins in Auguste Rodin: The Human Experience, where participants will look at a selected sculpture that leads to the themed yoga sequence of the day and discuss this part of the anatomy. The class then moves to a courtyard or gallery for a related yoga practice.

What you need to bring: mat, block, straps, blanket.
