Mining the Miners opens on 24 June 2016 and will run until the end of 2017 at the Canadian Museum of History in Gatineau, Québec. Located on the lower level, next to the Canadian Stamp Collection.

Bryan Kest has been practicing yoga since 1979 and has been teaching since 1985. He developed his unique, distinctive style of yoga, Original Power Yoga, in 1979. Over the years, this style, an amazing workout for the body, mind and spirit, has made him a well-known, popular teacher across the United States and around the world. Weekend Outline: Orientation/Power Yoga Class - Friday, July 28, 7 pm – 9 pm This class is part lecture, part asana practice. Bryan starts by explaining the objective of Power Yoga, as well as the principles of the practice. We encourage students to attend this class because it is the foundation of the entire weekend. Power Yoga Class - Saturday, July 29, 10:30 am – 1 pm A well rounded flowing asana practice integrating mental practices that enhance everyday living. The class is intended to invigorate your body and help you practice developing a calm, less reactive state of mind with dynamic flowing routines. In a Power Yoga class, you are encouraged to focus on the process and not the end result. This allows ALL levels of yoga practitioners to enjoy and benefit from the class. Long, Slow and Deep Stretch Class - Saturday, July 29, 4:30 pm – 6:30 pm The Long, Slow and Deep class has at the very least a few ostensible objectives. “The first is I wanted to give people a deep and potent alternative to the myriad of Vinyasa and flowing Hatha yoga classes. I wanted people to know that they have a choice. There have been so many days in my life when I just didn’t want to do a salutation or a lunge series or even to be that physically active. Yet, I still had the time and ability to practice as well as the desire for all the pleasing benefits of yoga. I still wanted to maintain my practice. I wanted people to see how utterly potent this kind of practice can be even without focusing on strength, endurance or even acquiring much heat. I also wanted people to experience the benefits of holding poses a little longer, giving these massive areas (hamstrings, groin, hips, shoulders, etc.) more time to release deeper. This truly is an amazing routine. It’s a paradox. It is by far the most difficult class I teach, yet you don’t really get off your butt the whole class. The challenge here is mostly mental. You are probably going to want to run away from this one, especially in the beginning. Hang in there, be patient and keep breathing, deeply and fluidly. We’ll dim the lights, warm up the room and you enjoy, (at least how it leaves you feeling).” Full-On Power Yoga Class - Sunday, July 30, 9:30 am – Noon An integration of everything covered over the weekend. Cost: $375.00 per person for the weekend (Friday/Saturday/Sunday). The weekend is open to students and teachers of all levels.

VOLTA tells a spellbinding story about the freedom to choose and the thrill of blazing your own trail. WAZ, a popular game show host, has lost touch with his inner self in the pursuit of fame, pulling others in the trap of instant glory. But as doubt sets in, WAZ is enlightened by childhood memories as he encounters “free spirits” who open doors to his inner soul he has long kept shut. Inspired in part by the adventurous spirit that fuels the culture of action sports, the show weaves the adrenaline rush of acrobatics into a visually striking world driven by a stirring melodic score. For this new production, Cirque du Soleil collaborated with international artist M83 as the composer and musical director, adding his epic space-age future pop sound to the VOLTA stage for the first time. The name VOLTA refers to a sudden about-face, a change in emotion or idea often used in poetry. It also speaks to the jolt of energy delivered through the show.

Comprising three movements, “Dead Fire,” “Farewell of the Shadow,” and “Dance of Extremity”, Wild Grass unfolds as an evocative abstraction of Lu’s volatile elemental landscapes, accompanied by solo piano, strings, and experimental electronica. White paper leaves scatter underfoot as dancers alternate between balletic grace and tension, conjuring the fragility and vitality of the human spirit.
