All the events are on Broadway, between 43rd - 47th Streets. Gothamist is interested in the yoga event, which the website describes as a way to "soothe the soul of the city as part of a larger Solstice in Times Square celebration. Together, through the practicing of basic yoga, including Hatha yoga and sun salutations, experienced Yogis and beginners alike will honor the balance of excitement and calm, inner stillness and dynamic motion, activity and acceptance." Calm and inner stillness in Times Square? Hee!
