ATHLETA MIND OVER MADNESS YOGA IN TIMES SQUARE 2013 SOLSTICE



Check check check check check...

The Longest Day of The Year

Beautiful blue skies and sunshine (thank-you weather G-ds!)

Crowds of people---not pushin'+shovin'  at the crossroads of the world---really NOT in a hurry...but taking a deep breath...

Good subway karma...that got us there right in time :)

And a big MUAH to our fav athletic brand of performance wear- ATHLETA---for once again sponsoring an amazingly successful free all day yoga fest...played out through the Broadway Plazas-from 43rd-46th streets.



Cameras were snapping everywhere...including moi....


from 7:30 to 9PM..classes by major yoga instructors ---Rodney Yee and Colleen Saidman Yee, and Douglass Stewart-the visionary co-founder of Solstice in Times Square

Athleta model/athlete Drisana Carey led the masses at the early AM session

downward dog----




there were yoga instructors throughout ready to help
All ages participate...JUST like the sign reads "we're open...we're open..."

Live streamed on www.athleta.com    and  www.timessquarenyc.org




several different areas to 'practice' one's practice...




giveaways including smartwater and Luna bars...with 9g protein/3 g fiber that tastes like dessert










sightseers to the Big Apple  probably got their best pictures....right there. Prob thinking ---these New Yorkers---so cool.





New York's Finest takes it all in...we chatted with him and he was REALLY impressed. "I'm thinking about it...one of these days" he told us--about giving yoga a go...Athleta will have to come out with a guy version of all these terrific tops/bottoms 



checking to make sure everyone got the right pose...if we were there--she'd probably have to stay there for the whole thing! Love-her space dye capri...Odyssey Charturangatm Yoga Knicker and Royal Pigeon Tank
FYI...love = Odyssey Charturangatm Yoga Knicker ...
