200+ gather for yoga in Times Square

More than 200 yoga enthusiasts gathered in New York's newly car-free Times Square for a massive early-morning workout session.

The Levitate Yoga class, which began at 10:30 a.m. Sunday, is one of five workshops planned by the Times Square Alliance to celebrate the dawning of summer, the New York Post reported Monday.

It's amazing to be in the middle of Times Square and feel yourself actually get calmer, yoga aficionado Daniela Vargas, 22, said of participating in the massive class. You look up at the buildings and just say, 'Wow.'
