Deep Dark Yoga - Free
Sunday, May 23 - 2:30 pm to 3:45 pm
(Online) Livestream via Zoom
Oh what do we have here? Well, it sure looks like we have another session of the fantastic yoga stream Deep Dark Yoga. If you like doom metal and need to stretch, this is the perfect event. This livestream yoga class instructs all levels of participants in basic yoga, all while doomy metal plays in the background. Don’t worry, it’s not like it’s all blast beats and growling, but the music offers something new for those who like a little bit of background doom and gloom in their Sunday. This recurring yoga course is free, though donations to the studio are encouraged and waiting lines tend to form to get into the Zoom chat.
