Celebrate the Summer Solstice: Do Yoga in Times Square

Image placeholder title

How should you salute the sun when it reaches its highest point in the sky this weekend? By doing yoga, of course!

This Saturday, June 21, Solstice in Times Square: Athleta Mind Over Madness Yoga (#SolsticeTSq) will pay tribute to the Summer Solstice, also known as the longest day of the year and the first day of summer, with a free day of yoga classes, starting at 5:30 a.m. with Sunrise Vinyasa and ending with an 8 p.m. Sunset Flow class.

The free event @TimesSquareNYC is currently at capacity, but The Times Square Alliance and Athleta will stream the event live on YogaJournal.com so you can join the classes right from your own yoga mat at home!

Locals can also participate in day two of the event on Sunday, June 22, by registering for the MINDBODY Sol Conference, featuring master classes in yoga, meditation and more, taught by luminaries like Rodney Yee and Alan Finger ($20 per class). Happy summer!
