I hit snooze after my alarm went off this morning at 5:30AM. The sound of rain coming down outside my window wasn’t very encouraging as I debated whether to get out of bed or not, but I’m sure glad I did! Today happens to be the first official day of summer, the longest day of the year, and International Day of Yoga! To celebrate, I signed up for a 7AM yoga class as part of the 13th annual Solstice in Times Square event hosted by Times Square Alliance and sponsored by Athleta.
The event was free although donations to yoga charities (Bent on Learning, Exhale to Inhale, and Urban Zen) were encouraged. Athleta even provided free yoga mats to all participants. How cute are these?
My class this morning was led by Crystal McCreary. Classes will be held throughout the day in Times Square. They are taking walk-ins if space permits, but if you don’t live in the New York City area you can follow along with the live webcast or see if your local studio is hosting something just as special.
Stay fit and fabulous,
