Om Street

Yesterday morning, West Hartford closed two major blocks in the Center for an hour.  About 1,000 people appeared to do group yoga exercises.

Kate said...

Makes me tired just to look at the photos. I would have done exactly what you did...snap photos...no Yoga for me!

Michelle said...

Looks pretty cool!

Luis Gomez said...

Wow!

Sharon said...

That is quite a lot of yoga all in one place!

Sylvia K said...

That's amazing! Definitely the most Yoga "joiners" I've ever seen in one place! Good for them! Now, which row are you in, Jack???? Love your captures!

That's the most 'planks' (second shot) I've ever seen in one spot all together Jack, good on them!

RedPat said...

Great shots of the event, Jack! It must have been fun.

Great reason to close a couple blocks of downtown streets, but I would have to be an observer rather than a participant.

Stefan Jansson said...

Looks like fun, at least for the onlookers. I have never tried yoga.

Randy said...

Wish I was there.

What a great crowd! Was this for a charity or something?

I tried yoga, once. Julie promised I wouldn't be the only guy there. She was wrong.

I was lousy at it. I can't stand on one leg due to an old tennis injury.

Near the end they had us all lie down and relax. I fell asleep. Julie was embarrassed, unpersuaded by my protestation that I did really well with the relaxation part.

Julie never invited me back.
