A slice of Solstice in Times Square


By Alicia Leeds Meyers (roving alignyo reporter and director, Full Life)

I am rifling through the gift bag I received this morning at Solstice in Times Square. There are passes for free yoga classes, a Luna Bar and Yoga Journalʼs peppermint lip balm, among other goodies from the event sponsors. As title sponsor, lucy provided yoga mats to the first thousand comers, and skillfully led a throng of sleepy yogis along a line that snaked around a city block on Broadway.

Cool retreat added to our site... check it out


This retreat sounds amazing! Why isn't it August now?  Montauk, surfing, paddle boarding and yoga with Sonic Yoga's Lauren Hanna and Tracy Mohr.

Sounds Bowls and YOGA... these are VERY cool


This past weekend I checked out the Raw Food / Yoga Conference and met Andrew Clark.

We chatted and I kept talking about gongs and he kept talking about bowls... we were both talking about sound vibrations but I wasn't listening to what he was saying. Then he said, "wait - just take a minute, check this out".
