Celebrate summer solstice with yoga

Local Events - NYC by Liz Eustace

We would be remiss not to mention the class happening over at Times Square with Solstice in the Square. Over 10,000 people are estimated to drop in and tune out to do a little yoga in the concrete jungle. We can almost see it from our offices in Midtown and it’s a trip. But hey, it’s the longest day of the year, so why limit yourself to just one fantastic yoga event? Get charged in Times Square and then chilaxi-nate elsewhere in the city.
