ATHLETA SOLSTICE IN TIMES SQUARE MIND OVER MADNESS YOGA 2014

the  inspiring  Bethany Lyons of Lyon's Den Yoga studios- Power Yoga-we felt the "heat' in our muscles….




How do you salute the sun...
 "Mind over madness" yoga---major muahs goes to our lived in the most apparel brand ATHLETA and the Times Sq. Alliance….in their annual, we hope forever sponsorship of Solstice in Times Square-June 21st…saluting the sun and the longest day of the year.
"pre-event" entertainment-demo-four gals worthy of Cirque du Soleil...








All told---about 10,000 yoga practices---in one hour sessions starting at 5:30 AM through 9PM.




striking a pose …lots of cameras everywhere
NOTICE---wearing Athelta and the apparel holds up with comfy stretchy fabrics…flattering on all body shapes.

We chatted with Bethany Lyons afterwards…we wondered why yoga is so dominated in this country by female enthusiasts…she felt the nutty crunchy ---and 'girly' (our word) stereotypes of all the different types of 'practices' is changing. And that guys will be challenged and inspired by the poses-fast moving or slower forms.

Realistically we only do yoga 1x a year at this event-but in reality, most of the stretches we do after rather hard core athletic endeavors have yoga equivalents…child pose, fish pose etc. 

And let's face it…just about everyone on the planet needs a dose of awareness/mindfulness- to just take a deep breathe…and slowly exhale------
