There’s been lots of Internet buzz this week for #MuseumWeek, a global celebration of culture. In exciting news out of Brussels, the Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium have launched a new yoga program so that visitors can “rediscover the museums as a place of contemplation.”

Starting on March 27, the monthly yoga sessions take place in the Bernheim room, where six monumental works by Gao Xingjian were installed at the end of February. A Frenchman of Chinese origin, the artist-writer was awarded the Nobel Prize of Literature in 2000. These six works were exclusively created for the Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium. The new yoga classes, held in English, are a means to immerse visitors in the artist’s universe, as he seeks to create connections between Eastern and Western worlds.
