Deathly Hallows Yoga | image via @isabelb12om

Yep. Add it to the growing list of themed-yoga classes, Harry Potter is just another distraction. Students show up at a brewery (another hot trend) decked out in HP gear, are treated to a reading of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows and are given a magic wand.

by Kelly Benshoof A 2016 study found that 36.7 million people practice yoga in the US. Let’s say the average cost of a class is $15 (a steal in most yoga-dense areas).

They call it "a counterpoint to New Year's Eve" — the Summer Solstice Yoga in Times Square is already underway, ringing in the longest day of the year with sun salutations and down dogs in NYC's busiest intersection.

Limber up, folks. The Yoga Olympics are inevitable. We'll just leave this right here: Think you can do a perfect surya namaskar? You could be up for a medal later this year. International Yoga Day promises to be bigger and better, with "Olympic-type" competition likely to be on the cards. That's from Friday's Economic Times.

New York City is full of cultural treasures. And with yoga studios on every corner, yoga mats an ubiquitous accessory bopping through the streets, and kirtan pouring out of windows on a wave of incense, the city also happens to be full of India's cultural treasures, too. Or at least, remnants of them. Luckily we [...]
