For the 11th year in a row, the Times Square Alliance and title sponsor Athleta, is hosting free yoga events during today’s Summer Solstice on the busiest stretch of Manhattan real estate. Time Square might not be a place where you expect find peace and serenity, but that is exactly the point of the Summer Solstice yoga event.

Another inspirational moment came from 94 years young Tao Porchon-Lynch, who led the masses in a meditation, reminding us all to smile and embrace that “there is nothing we cannot do if we harness the power within us”.
