The summer solstice yoga festival -- for everyone from beginners to the most experienced practitioners -- started early in the morning and was expected to continue until sundown.

Free mats were handed out to the first 1,200 at each class, and pedestrian zones in Times Square were entirely covered with the colorful rectangles and the yoga enthusiasts, most of them women in exercise attire.

Participants carefully went through a series of yoga poses, following instructions from teachers, broadcast via loudspeakers. Organizers said the oldest yoga teacher was 94.

The spectacle, which delighted tourists and photographers alike, takes place each year to mark the summer solstice.

Those not wishing to take part could still watch the proceedings at the following website: www.TimesSquareNYC.org.
