New York went yoga crazy Session for a second day running as thousands of practitioners gathered on Central Park’s Great Lawn.

Under the guidance of acclaimed yogi Elena Brower, the masses assembled for a calming session under the open skies.

Sadly the event came to a premature end after a rain shower hit the area, but spirits were not dampened, and a revised date will be announced in the next few days.

The gathering follows a similar stunt in the city’s Times Square, which was held to mark the summer solstice.

The free annual 'Summer Solstice in Times Square Yoga-thon' attracted thousands of participants and many more who watched the day-long event.

The massive 'yoga-thon' marks the official summer solstice and the longest day of the year, June 21

Jennifer Lobo, from organisers Times Square Alliance, said it was an amazing sight as peace descended on one of the busiest places on the planet.

She said: 'If you could create tranquility in the most crazy, high energy place in the world that is a really great oxymoron, or a great opposite.

New York City is known for being a city that never sleeps.

'With taxi horns, construction and every other imaginable source of noise, it is often hard to find a quiet corner anywhere outdoors.

'New York yogis are some of the best in the world because they can bring that eternal peace to their practice and disregard anything going on outside, noise or whatever it is.'
