Solstice in Times Square: How to Bring the Event to Your Studio

June 21 is a huge day for yoga. It’s both the summer solstice (or winter, for those of you in the Southern Hemisphere), which marks the beginning of Dakshinayana, and the International Day of Yoga. Not only that—it’s the very first time that these days have aligned, as the International Day of Yoga was just declared in December 2014 by the United Nations General Assembly. To celebrate, thousands of yogis will gather for the 13th Annual Solstice in Times Square: Athleta Mind Over Madness Yoga, bringing tranquility to the Crossroads of the World. All day, participants will take yoga classes led by celebrity instructors; however, even if you’re not physically in attendance, you and your students can take part in this celebration. Organize an event to bring Solstice in Times Square: Athleta Mind Over Madness Yoga to your studio, where you can stream a live webcast of the event and the classes. The webcast is available for free, courtesy of MINDBODY Connect™, so wherever you are, you can share in the Solstice experience.

Set up a one-day event
The live webcast will be available on the Times Square Alliance website, and it includes all classes at Solstice. And access is easy—you won’t need to pre-register or provide any information in order to view it. All you’ll need to do is click the link!

  • Choose a time
  • Solstice in Times Square: Athleta Mind Over Madness Yoga will take place from 9:00AM to 7:30PM (EST), and you can choose to hold your event during any or all of the live webcast. The webcast will play on the link above through Monday, June 22.  If you wish to host an event after that, you will need to visit TimesSquareNYC.org/Solstice to find the link to the LiveStream page.
