In recent years, outdoor yoga has become a popular way for yogis to connect with nature—but Blue Lotus Yoga in North Carolina is hosting its classes in an unusual setting.

At the historic Oakwood Cemetery, more than 150 yogis gathered before dawn and practiced sequences by the light of candles and headlamps. As well as inspiring a connection to nature, the unusual setting is bound to be a place that reminds of the importance of breath to life.

Although tombstones, rolling fog and other aspects of the spooky setting definitely have some spine-chilling properties, many attendees regard the outdoor yoga class as a celebration of life. As Carrington Jackson, a teacher at Blue Lotus Yoga puts it: "You’re halfway between heaven and earth, right here."
