New York, NY – The Times Square Alliance welcomed more than 12,000 yogis on June 21, 2017; for free yoga classes at the 15th annual Solstice in Times Square: Mind Over Madness Yoga, presented by Aerie. A key theme this year for co-founders Tim Tompkins and Douglass Stewart is “Ahimsa,” a Sanskrit word ofien translated as “do no harm” or non-violence.”

“The theme of Ahimsa is especially relevant as we witness new waves of anger and violence erupting around the country and around the world, including in Times Square itself just a few weeks ago,” said Tim Tompkins, President of Times Square Alliance and co-founder of the event. “Even at a time when it seems impossible, one can, and should, take a moment to find harmony within their mind, body, and the world around them.”

“Thousands of yoga practitioners come to Summer Solstice in Times Square/Mind over Madness Yoga to cut through the noise of inner unsteadiness and outer distractions to bathe in their own deeper stillness,” said Douglass Stewart, co-founder of Solstice in Times Square.

“Aerie is so excited to sponsor this year’s Solstice in Times Square,” said Jen Foyle, Global Brand President of Aerie. “The #AerieREAL message is our commitment to empowering everyone to feel happy, healthy and confident inside and out. This event is an amazing way to share our message and empower thousands of yogis to love their REAL selves.”

Yogis of all skill levels participated in seven free yoga classes
