Did you make it into this year’s YoGA at MoMA? Luck you! We hear it was a spectacular affair with over 300 yogis parked under the massive whale skeleton strung from the 60ft high ceiling. Gorgeous!
The event was masterminded by Flavorpill co-founder Sascha Lewis, who can up with the idea back in 2004, but only got to convincing the folks at MoMA (Museum of Modern Art) when Pipilotti Rist’s playful installment last year screamed for a downward dog extension. The thing is, yoga-ing amidst creative works is like a living breathing art installation in and of itself, but only so many sweaty bodies can fit within the confines of a gallery. In fact, this time over 1,500 eager beavers emailed for a mat spot and only 300 got in! Right, so what’s the only natural next step for organized synchronized sun salutations? Take it to the park!
In light of such overwhelming interest, Lewis is focusing on a way to make these yoga spectaculars accessible to a much larger community. He won’t divulge the date, but says city officials have agreed to make Central Park available during the summer.
We’re not holding our breath for Woodstock proportions, but surely this has the potential for epic awesomness. That’s right Simon and Garfunkel, yogis are coming to make history in Central Park!
If you went to YoGA at MoMA, tell us how it was and send pics!
