Yoga ‘Crescent Pose’ = Moon Phases
This Crescent Pose variation is a dynamic balancing act that symbolizes the waxing and waning phases of the ever-changing moon. The key is to aspire to steadiness and joy while embracing the inevitable wobbles.
Watch yoga instructor YuMee Chung demonstrates a 7 step adaption of Crescent Pose at the Aga Khan Museum.

Light , Pattern & Shadows
Award-winning architect of the Aga Khan Museum, Fumihiko Maki, was inspired first and foremost by light.
“He ensured not only that light is ever-present in the building, but that, depending on the time of day or season, light will animate the building in myriad ways: throwing patterns on the exterior walls of Brazilian granite, enhancing interior spaces, or illuminating the open-roofed courtyard.”
In October, guests were treated to a spectacular display of sport cars including the very elusive Pagani Automobili Zonda F under the stars on the perfect fall evening at the spectacularly designed Aga Khan Museum.
Also during the same month, Wheels.ca profiled the futuristic 2017 Protonic Red Edition BMW i8 at the beautiful and austere Aga Khan Museum against the backdrop of the stunning and serene Ismaili Centre, Toronto.
