Lunar Eclipse Yoga // Workshop with Caravan Age Yoga at Cairo
4:00 pm16:00

Lunar Eclipse Yoga // Workshop with Caravan Age Yoga at Cairo

  • Cairo

On Sunday October 5th Cairo is hosting a yoga workshop from 4-6pm. This workshop is an opportunity to delve into the more cosmic and metaphysical aspects of yoga through a discussion of the upcoming total lunar eclipse--or blood moon--in relation to yoga philosophy and ayurveda. The session will also include a yoga practice designed to get you in touch with the lunar energy and allow you to work with it on the physical, energetic, and psycho-spiritual levels as you head into the eclipse period. Led by Rena Luelle of Caravan Age Yoga, the workshop will provide a chance to pause, reflect, and set a clear intention for the eclipse--which takes place on October 8th--and the changes it may usher in, individually and for the collective. The small group setting will provide a safe, supportive space to explore our shared connection to the cosmic event that is about to occur. Prior experience with yoga or meditation is helpful, however, the workshop will be accessible for all.

Rena Luelle is an artist and designer who works under the name Caravan Age. She also makes music and performs in the duo Ecstatic Cosmic Union. Rena began practicing yoga eight years ago and has found yoga to be integral to her development as an artist and human. She completed her 200 hr teacher training through Lotus Yoga in June and is now teaching yoga to kids and offering Caravan Age Yoga sessions and workshops at various venues around Capitol Hill and on the south end.

Please bring a yoga mat and wear clothing that allows you to move freely.

Workshop is $35 and includes a workbook with a yoga sequence, pranayama (breathing exercises), and meditation suggestions (including mantra and mudra repetition) for practicing at home. A limited number of sliding scale spaces are available. Please contact to request a sliding scale spot.

Preregistration is required and space is limited. The last day to register is Saturday October 4th. Please send $35 via paypal to or swing by Cairo to pay in cash only.

Thank you and we hope to see you there!

CAIRO: INTERIORS. Art by Gabriel Stromberg



CAIRO is excited to announce a very special art show featuring local artist and graphic designer Gabriel Stromberg

In his new series titled INTERIORS, Stromberg explores the intricacies of silkscreening with color, light, geometry, and space. The pieces take inspiration from architecture, interior design, and graphic design.

Gabriel Stromberg is the Art Director for Seattle's graphic design firm Civilization

Interiors opens Thursday, June 12th, and will be on display until July 8th. 

Join us on June 12th from 7-9 PM for art, drinks, and conversation!


What was your first creative outlet?

When I was a kid drawing was my thing.  I was never without paper, pens, pencils, and markers. I remember in second grade having a drawing club with my friends. We would hang out all day drawing robots and monsters.

What is the most satisfying element of design for you? What do you enjoy most?

I love surprises—when things come together in an unexpected way. Randomness and chance can be really important parts of the design process.

What are you most inspired by?

I am really inspired by design history. I am constantly looking to the past for ideas and visual references. Most of my design heroes made their mark in the sixties or seventies—designers like Otl Aicher, Ken Garland, and Wim Crouwel. For the pieces in Interiors I was particularly inspired by the Bauhaus—the German arts and crafts school that existed in the twenties and the thirties. 

Where do you draw inspiration when you need a creative boost?

My favorite inspiration destination is the downtown library.  I can easily spend all day there. When I go there, I always dress up and bring all my supplies—pencils, paper, exacto knife, glue stick. I usually snag a window table in the spiral and a stack of about ten books—much more interesting than a google image search. My favorite part is the crappy black and white xerox printer. It makes the best copies for collaging.

How long have you been affiliated with Cairo?

I have been a fan from the beginning. 

Do you have a favorite piece or series you’ve ever created? 

I always like what I am currently working on the most. When a project is finished the party’s over and then it’s on to the next one. 

Do you have anything you want to share specifically about INTERIORS?

For the past eight years or so I have regularly kept a sketchbook — I am constantly doodling and jotting down ideas, rough sketches, freeform drawings. The result is usually very unresolved and for the most part meaningless but I started to realize that many times these rough ideas would inform my design work. About a year ago I started taking more time with these doodles and sketches—putting more effort into them to make them finished things. These became the first pieces I did for Interiors. 

See you Thursday, June 12th!
