Every Tuesday spiritual worlds unite in a darkened cathedral, illuminated with colorful light trickling in from the stained glass windows. Multicolored mats cover the floors of the vast cathedral as a yoga session begins, accompanied by beautiful live instrumentals. It’s fair to say that yoga sessions at Grace Cathedral are simply divine. And lucky for us, they are back in business post-pandemic.
Hundreds of people flock to Yoga on the Labyrinth, creating an epic scene. Classes take place every Tuesday evening from 6:15pm to 7:30pm, and cost $15.
The session is a gentle Hatha yoga practice that’s open to all ages and abilities, taught by well-known local yoga teacher Darren Main. During your practice, you will be accompanied by live music from world-renowned musicians, all within the stunning architecture of Grace Cathedral. As you lay down your mat on one of Grace Cathedral’s characteristic labyrinths, you’ll realize that this is not your typical yoga experience.
While many of the participants aren’t members of the church, keen yogis will attest to the spiritual nature of the experience that is said to transcend religion. Although, that doesn’t stop the church from delivering a brief reflection from one of the reverends at the start of each class.
Remember to reserve your spot at Yoga on the Labyrinth, happening Tuesday evenings at Grace Cathedral! Bring a yoga mat, any yoga props you need, water, and warm exercise clothes as the cathedral can be quite cool. You’ll find the Cathedral at 110 California St.
