About that clock:
The Great Gravity Clock stands fifty-two feet tall and is the biggest kinetic energy sculpture in Florida.
Located in the Museum’s Grand Atrium since 1993, this unique timepiece is one of the only three that exist in the world. The other two are in Mexico and Japan.
More than twenty years ago, Jim and Jan Moran and JM Family Enterprises partnered together to bring the Great Gravity Clock to Broward County. Twenty-four years of exposure to the elements compromised its ability to tell time so a major restoration was undertaken in late 2016. JM Family Enterprises, Inc., and The Jim Moran Foundation generously funded a complete restoration of the clock, which was completed in early April 2017. Now a new generation of museum visitors can enjoy telling time with the Great Gravity Clock.
About Felix Rodriguez:
Coming from a martial arts background, Felix was always very active. He started yoga at 16, being initially intrigued by a scorpion pose he saw in one of his dad’s books . At age 22 Felix got serious about his practice while in San Francisco, but it was still very much asana based; He craved knowledge of the history, philosophy and science of Yoga and began to seek a teacher training program.
Felix enrolled in a teacher training shortly after moving back to south Florida. Along with the aspects of Yoga he sought to learn, Felix put his body through one of the greatest physical challenges he had ever experienced.
Part of his commitment to teaching is to generate a community of dedicated yogis looking to physically challenge their bodies. Taking it beyond that, Felix beleives we can build social connections in our community so we can help each other through our lowest moments as well as share the beauty in life when we see it.
As a yoga teacher, Felix is also passionate that people learn to be comfortable in their own skin and show compassion to themselves .
He says “We live in a society of disconnectedness and we are constantly reminded we are not enough or we don’t have enough.
Comparison is the thief of joy, and I encourage my students to find joy in every little thing they can.”
