Every year now there’s a summer solstice celebration in Times Square.
This year it was held Sat June 21, starting at 5.30am and going until 9.15am.
1’000′s bring yoga mats and with the help of a yoga teacher calling out the next pose, New Yorkers who love yoga celebrate the summer solstice in their own way.
It’s a very New York celebration – all that quiet and disciplined intensity on one of the most crowded and busy places on earth even at 5.30am in the morning. See the video and feel the peace.
It takes money to put on something this big and the event is supported by the Times Square Alliance and Athleta, Gap’s exercise wear brand. And thank you to both for that support.
It’s a very ‘in tune’ celebration for what is a major natural event. The calm, unhurried and graceful practice of yoga is itself all part of natural process of being fully in touch with the body.
