Service Opportunity of the Month

We don't only Practice Yoga by moving through postures on our mat, we also practice it out in the world. So every month Practicing Yoga chooses a different organization to help.

Every Sunday at 11:00am we will have a Fundamentals class that will be donation based (and of course you can donate any time).

The National Building Arts Center

Our Mission

The National Building Arts Center is a unique, emergent study center housing the nation’s largest and most diversified collection of building artifacts, supported with a research library offering broad holdings in architecture and allied arts. Our collection represents the single largest effort toward understanding the American built environment and the historical process of its creation. The Center strives to use its massive collections to educate the public on all aspects of the building arts from design to fabrication.

Our Vision

The National Building Arts Center (NBAC) wants to tell the full story of building culture. We aim to lead a new discussion about the American built environment – once in which architectural history opens into a holistic understanding of material, craft, labor, design and sociopolitical context. The material culture of American architecture long has been defined through study of aesthetic innovation divorced from a wider understanding of how building technology depends upon invention, economic and political factors, and inherited knowledge.
