According to the New York Post, yoga teacher Rodney Yee and his wife Colleen antagonized Sag Harbor, NY, police by holding a class in Marine Park without a permit on July 3. “As the class started, cops descended and threatened to arrest the couple, but were talked down and the group was allowed to disband without a violation being issued,” reported the Post. According to Yee, however, the story was exaggerated — he was approached simply by a park supervisor. Despite his best intentions to facilitate yoga to overflow students from Colleen’s nearby studio, the supervisor forced the spontaneous class to disband. A bit of an extreme reaction by the authorities, no?
