HELLO AND HAPPY SATURDAY!!

 

Yesterday I participated in my first Summer Solstice yoga event in Time Square!!

 Into its 11th year, this event has grown from three people to more than 15,000

 

HERE’S A QUICK LOOK AT MY EXPERIENCE YESTERDAY!!

 The event started at 10am and we were advised to join at around 9:30am, but being my very punctual self I decided to get a head start and arrive around 9am lol

As soon as I arrived there were already tons of people waiting to get in and get their yoga on and the early birds were given a free yoga mat, water bottle, yoga dvd, and tons of info on yoga classes and upcoming events!!

To start my morning stretchins’ I brought my own yoga mat that I had custom made with the Eat drink shrink log via Yogamatics and my fresh Doctor Green Juice from the JUICE PRESS

HERE’S A FULL LENGTH VIDEO OF THE ENTIRE EXPERIENCE!! 

 

 Yoga enthusiasts celebrate the longest day of the year with an all day yoga fest. Attendees are challenged to find tranquility and transcendence in the midst of the world’s most commercial and frenetic place, Times Square.

 

Anyone can find tranquility on top of a mountain.

Can you find it in the middle of Times Square?

 

I personally loved this experience as not only did I get the chance to do downward dogs in the middles of the street without getting awkward stares from people passing by, but more than anything..

 

I got the opportunity to find peace in the center of the beautiful and chaotic New York City

MY FAVORITE PART?!

 

At the end of the yoga session we got to chant “Ohm’s” in unison together and you could literally hear it bouncing off of the buildings in Time Square

 

Filling the air with the sound of peace rather than car horns, sirens, and crazy people fighting was really neat.

 

I would definitely sign up to do this again!!
