Spotlight On: Queen Street Yoga

Queen Street Yoga is excited about NIGHT\SHIFT! Here’s why.

Queen Street Yoga was one of the first venues to come on board for NIGHT\SHIFT. Located on the upper floor at 44 Queen St. South, QSY is offering three free yoga classes during NIGHT\SHIFT, at 8:00, 10:00 and midnight, with a soundtrack provided by DJ Miss Herbasshifts . When have you been to a DJ’d yoga class?

QSY is also hosting a performance piece in their second studio. At 9;15 and 11:15, Sarah Tolmie & Dawn Parker of the Raw Nerve Research Group / Waterloo Institute for Complexity and Innovation at the University of Waterloo present In Case of Emergency Please Break Glass, an intervention on Philip Glass’ Knee Play 4 featuring a dozen local performing artists playing instruments, singing and ballroom dancing.

We asked Leena at Queen Street Yoga what they’re excited about and what they hope people get out of their NIGHT\SHIFT activities, and this is what she said:

We’re excited to see so much collaboration and energy Downtown. This will be a great event to explore new places and see things in new ways in the Downtown landscape. We’re excited to welcome people into our space for a unique experience of an all-levels DJ’d yoga flow.

Yoga can help you feel more at ease and connected to your body and people and spaces around you, so we think after the practice people will take in the art and performances in a new way.
