If you missed it live, here are some perty shots of yogis in the heart of Times Square mania and video of Times Square Alliance President Tim Tompkins explaining the concept of “Mind Over Madness.”
“We’re trying to create a little ocean or perhaps just a little lake or just a drop of serenity in the midst of all this madness. It is easy to go out into a beautiful a green field or the top of the a mountain and find peace of mind while you’re doing yoga.
The challenge, and really what yoga is so much about, is nurturing your spirit, staying grounded even as you are living a full life in the middle of the world. And there’s no place where life is lived more fully than the middle of a place like Times Square.”
“It’s an attempt, on the longest day of the year, when the sun is shining brightest, to tap into that energy and have it help carry us through the rest of the year.”
Heh. Yeah! Who needs those green fields and mountains anyway? ahem Wanderlust. *cough* Hanuman, Telluride, Ojai, Bhakti Fest *cough* Aw, we still love you nature.
More video. Most of the coverage was for the Bikram midday class. Apparently the media are booked with croissant breakfasts and martini dinner meetings at night.
Shhhh…NYC is savasan-ing
