Yoga Flash Mob at Grand Central Terminal NYC
Uh-Oh, Today's Yoga Flash Mob Gets the Kibosh
UPDATE: We hear that the yoga flash mob has been called off due to serious MTA repercussions. Who would have thought that an event meant to inspire peace and unity might have resulted in arrests and strife? No, thanks. Instead, you can meet the dashed flash mobbers for a quiet picnic in Bryant Park. All's well that ends well.
This year is all about the reinvention of conventional yoga. First, new schools like Breakti and BuddhaXtreme emerged; then, yoga dance parties became a thing. While I wouldn't label this a trend just yet, c'mon, flash mob appeal mixed with diehard yoga enthusiasts? Sounds like a crowd pleaser to me. NYC-based yoga nonprofit Storm Yoga is spearheading yoga's first foray into public spectacle tomorrow evening. Are you down(ward dog) to strike a pose in one of New York's busiest transportation hubs?
At 6 p.m., you can leave behind your regular 9 to 5 and become an official flash mobber. All you have to do is meet at Grand Central Terminal, mat in tow, for what Storm Yoga describes as a "bold display of an emerging consciousness that's built upon focus, presence, and boundless energy." Given that this semispontaneous act of yoga sequences is taking place smack dab in the middle of rush-hour commute, I wonder how Zen the experience will prove for passersby in transit as well as for the actual flash mobbers midsalute.
