Ahoy! Celebriyogi spotted on the lawn. Can you guess who? It’s DK of NY! We were waiting for the celeb sightings to surface from the ginormous media yoga event that was Yoga at the Great Lawn. While the class may have been a wash out, it sure did draw a record-breaking crowd. Thousands of yogadorks showed up despite daunting forecasts, including all-stars like Dharm Mittra, Alison West and Sadie Nardini, but no do-good downdogging celebs? Like Russell Simmons had anything else better to do? Seriously! Thank goodness yoga hero Donna Karan came out to represent, and she even braved the masses mixing with all the other yogs on the lawn (who we hope all got in for free…some degenerates with enterprising spirit were selling tix on craigslist for $200!). Anyway, maybe we’ll see more famous faces in updog come September for the do-over now that it was such a huge hit. Perhaps if it were somehow a charity event? Celebs love those!
Related: DK was recently seen down at the Community Board 2 meeting last Thursday to defend Urban Zen from pissed off neighbors. Apparently too much raising the roof raising funds for the charity org. (DK’s Urban Zen is behind the yoga wing at Beth Israel Hospital in NYC helping cancer survivors and gathering vital data on its effects on prehab/rehabilitation).
