The Times Square in New York resembled an immense outdoor yoga class as several thousand New Yorkers calmly invaded the place Wednesday, to salute the arrival of summer.

Some 1,500 yoga mats were distributed free for the occasion, and pedestrian spaces in New York's most frenetic crossroads were completely covered.

All day, thousands of yogis, beginners and veterans alike, dutifully sweated in the heat, following directions broadcast over loudspeakers.

The first of the free short courses began at 7:30 am, and the last was scheduled for 8:30 pm, to the delight of tourists.

And those who wanted to could follow the annual event, on the Times Square website, http://www.timessquarenyc.org.
