Metal Yoga Is a Thing, and You Can Take It in Somerville

If you haven’t found your zen during regular yoga—or cat yoga, goat yoga, Himalayan salt room yoga, and so on—try this on for size: Once Somerville is hosting metal yoga next month.

The class is exactly as it sounds. You’ll flow to an hour-long soundtrack of doom and heavy metal, instead of, say, Enya or soothing flute music. It’s the perfect class for all the Health Goths in your life.

The session will be taught by Tina Moroney, the instructor behind Salam-based Black Widow Yoga. Metal yoga is Black Widow’s specialty, and Moroney teaches it in locations ranging from Salem’s Satanic Temple (naturally) to Beverly’s the Black Veil Studio of Tattoo and Art.

Once Somerville’s class will take place on Tuesday, May 23, at 6 p.m. Mats are not provided. As for the dress code? Black seems like a safe choice.

$17, 5/23, 6 p.m. Once Somerville Ballroom, 156 Highland Ave., Somerville,
