What is Solstice in Times Square?
Each year, thousands of yogis from around the world travel to Times Square to celebrate the Summer Solstice with free yoga classes in the heart of New York City and to find their center in one of the city's busiest places. On the northern hemisphere’s longest day of the year, become part of this global celebration with one of the classes taking place all day long.
