City envy: there's a heavy metal yoga class in Pittsburgh

Yoga is said to have been first devised by Indian ascetics seeking to make their way calmly into self-betterment. Thousands of years later,a group in suburban Pittsburgh has brought the practice to its logical next phase - by pairing it with screaming stoner metal. Black Yo)))ga, set up by a husband and wife duo, offers sun salutations, tree poses and downward dogs set to a soundtrack of drone, metal, industrial, 'space doom' and more. The organisers were inspired to create a space for people who 'might not fit into traditional yoga classes', and might be dealing with issues including depression, anxiety and drug addiction. We like everything about the idea -not least because there-s no chance of nodding off at the back in this one. Plus, you'll remain blissfully oblivious whenever a fellow yogi lets one rip. Aurally, at least.

We also want San Francisco's ballpit cocktail bar and an arty minigolf course like Nottingham.
