The Times Square Alliance is pleased to support three of our favorite yoga charities this year, Bent on Learning, Exhale to Inhale and Urban Zen. While you register, please consider contributing to one or all of these great NYC-based yoga-related charities. Since all Solstice classes are free, consider a donation equal to the amount you would normally pay for a yoga class.
This year, there is an exciting new development. The United Nations General Assembly has declared that June 21st is the International Day of Yoga, and is planning a global celebration, with New York City and Times Square playing central roles, in part because of our 13-year tradition of having a Solstice yoga event here at the Crossroads of the World. Times Square is the leading official public site in New York City for the International Day of Yoga, and dignitaries from the UN and the Government of India are scheduled to attend our event on the 21st.
