It’s happening. June 21 is the Summer Solstice (we know, already??) and that means it’s also time for saluting the sun in Times Square. As of today, registration is open for you and approximately 9,999 of your yogi friends to get your Mind Over Madness—that’s what they call it, no it’s not a protest march.
Your 2017 schedule is similar to previous years, as are the sponsors—it’s a day of yoga tastings paired with yoga (and yoga-piggybacking) corporations, as to be expected with a free event. Co-founder Douglass Stewart kicks off the longest day of the year with a 7:30am class, you have your stalwart Yee and Saidman Yee appearances, there’s the now traditional (and still OK with using his name) Bikram lunchtime class and a curiously titled #AerieREAL Empowered Flow with Catherine Gignac which we can only assume is aerial yoga swinging from skyscraper-strung Aerie lingerie. The day ends like all yoga events these days, with a DJ’d dance party and free snack bars.
Here’s the full lineup:
7:30am – 8:30am Douglass Stewart
9:30am – 10:30am Sarah Finger
11:30am – 12:30pm: #AerieREAL Empowered Flow with Catherine Gignac
