Yoga at the graveyard

Yoga at the graveyard

image Do yoga, leave a beautiful corpse, I say. And now you can work on corpse pose at Hollywood Forever Cemetery, which, if you haven?t noticed, has rebranded itself as ?not your grandfather?s graveyard.? (Who knew death could be so much fun?)

Toward that end, Antebellum Gallery is presenting Yoga Forever, a yoga class held at Hollywood Forever, on the lawn in front of the mausoleum (where they show the movies) every Tuesday at 7 PM.

This week, Yogi Camille Hines will lead the class with DJ Shawn Parker providing the soundtrack. Bring your own mat? and a blanket and warm clothing, they advise, to ward off the chill.

Bend, stretch, reach for the stars? the ones in the sky as well as those interred all around you.

Hollywood Forever Cemetery, 6000 Santa Monica Blvd. Los Angeles CA 90038. Yoga class is $20, includes parking.

CBS 2 sent a camera and reporter to last night’s yoga class at Hollywood Forever.
