Forget yoga in a studio. Get inspired at this affordable class surrounded by beautiful stained-glass windows.

Too many yoga classes are like slow forms of Pilate: meant only as physical exercise. If you want something far more contemplative, closer to yoga’s original spiritual nature, come to Yoga on the Labyrinth Tuesday nights inside Grace Cathedral.

Yoga teacher Darren Main incorporates live music into the practice, adding relaxing ambiance to top the beautiful inlaid labyrinth on the stone floor and stained-glass windows of the cathedral.

Live music for ambiance: The teacher Darren Main feels that by adding a live musical guest, it’s easier to get into a deeper state of meditation and relaxation. Five different New Age musicians play their forte: Indian chanting, harps & chanting, bamboo flutes, singing bowls & native instruments. Upcoming schedule of musicians.
