New York’s Times Square, one of the world’s busiest crossroads, has come to a standstill to allow yoga enthusiasts to mark the summer solstice.
The Manhattan square became a sea of yogis exercising in time on their mats, beneath the billboards.
Tim Tompkins, co-founder of event, said part of its appeal was finding stillness and calm amid the city rush on the longest day of the year.
They can only fit 600 at a time into Times Square so the rest are at other locales, different times.
Free yoga classes began at 07:30 local time and were due to continue until sunset.
The oldest of the teachers in the square was 94, the AFP news agency reported.
Bravo. For all the right reasons…fitness, calming, relaxation, health.
Of course the nutball brigade in the Republican Party will call this further proof of NYC as a center of Satanism.
