People lying on the floor in yoga class mistaken for “mass murder” in Britain

People lying on the floor in yoga class mistaken for 'mass murder' in UK

The yoga practitioners performed Shavasana.

In a peculiar twist, police rushed to a community in Britain after local dog walkers misinterpreted a group meditation exercise during a yoga class as something akin to a “ritual mass murder”.

Police officers received a call to the North Sea Observatory in Chapel St Leonards, Lincolnshire, on Wednesday evening over concerns of a potential large-scale criminal incident.

However, it was later discovered that the group of people involved had simply been lying on their backs with their eyes closed and participating in the relaxation phase of a class.

The yoga practitioners performed Shavasana (Corpse Pose).

The unusual incident was documented by Seascape Cafe and shared in a Facebook post.

Lincolnshire Police later said everyone was safe and well, and acknowledged the call had been made out of well-intentioned concern.

Yoga teacher Millie Laws told BBCthat she thought reports that she was a “mass murderer” were a “joke at first”.

The 22-year-old teacher told the news outlet that she was teaching seven students at the Seascape Cafe, which is inside the building, when she saw two dog walkers peering closely through the glass window during the Shavasana, or relaxation, phase of class.

“They are [students] lying with blankets over him; their eyes are closed. It’s very dark in there. I just had candles and little tea lights lit up the whole room and I just walked around playing the drum. I was wearing a nice flowy top with big bell sleeves,” she said.

“A couple with some dogs came right up to the window and looked in, but they quickly walked away and I didn’t think anything of it. I didn’t know until after we left that these people called in. said there was a mass murderer ; they were wearing a cape and they were walking over all the people and it was like some kind of ritual and that the people on the floor were actually dead,” Millie Laws told BBC.

“I guess from the outside it might look like that because they’re all really quiet, very nice and laid back. I’m sure their imaginations were running wild with what was going on.”
