Yoga in the City
New York City, that is. In the middle of NYC, as a matter of fact! Yesterday was Summer Solstice when we experience the most number of daylight hours of the year, and some New Yorker yogis and yoginis celebrated by doing their sun salutes in the middle of 42nd Street!
While we often seek to do our yoga practice in idyllic retreats nestled in forests or overlooking the ocean, it can, and should be practiced- wherever we are.
I remembered that one of the best classes I had was a tiny yoga room at a Sivananda Center in India, situated at one of the busiest intersections in Delhi!
In the middle of the cacophony of city noises (and NYC pales in comparison to the sounds of a city in India), you can really test your center, your focus, and being in the middle of it all – without being swept away by it!
Solstice Blessings to our city bravehearts!

What a fabulous idea! I will have to keep this in mind for next year’s solstice. This might be more fun than Times Square on New Year’s Eve…
