"Escape to Yoga Island," Day-Long Yoga Celebration



    Outdoor yoga practitioners who are looking to connect with like-minded New York City folk may want to take note: Saturday, August 6, will see a giant congregation of yogis on Governor's Island for a day of free outdoor yoga classes.

    Billed as "Escape to Yoga Island," the Lulumenon-sponsored event will run from 10:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., featuring a "bold collaboration yoga, community and music on Governor's Island."

    It's the first-ever event of its kind, and is free to yogis of all levels. The only requirement is a yoga mat of your own.

    Well+Good NYC has a great breakdown of logistics for the event, including to get there and what to pack.

    Here's a schedule posted on the Escape to Yoga Island Facebook page:
