One of the best things about the neighborhood I’m living in is it’s proximity to everything. So much (parks, restaurants, nightlife, shopping) is within walking distance – which is one of the best things about living in a city. One attraction is Grace Cathedral, a large stone church right on the top of Nob Hill where they hold a free yoga class every Tuesday evening for yogi’s of all levels. Everyone gathers in the sanctuary around a large labyrinth and enjoys an hour and fifteen minutes of the ancient zen practice. The leader reads meditations at the beginning and end of the practice and a harp player plays and sings while you work through the poses. Sitting in a massive cathedral on yoga mats surrounded by strangers (and ornate stained glass and thousands of strands of ribbon hanging from the ceiling) is an amazing way to feel connected to yourself and your surroundings.
