NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – The Great Lawn in New York’s Central Park is about to be infested with thousands of downward dogs.

That’s because next Tuesday (Jun. 22), the arts and culture blog Flavorpill is holding the world’s largest yoga class there.

Flavorpill founder Sascha Lewis is expecting 10,000 yogis to participate and help break the U.S. record for the largest yoga session in history.

Not only will yogis get a chance to mingle with one another and practice their favorite form of exercise, they’ll also be sending positive vibes out to the world with their body- bending moves.

Lewis explains, “Yoga can make the world a better place through its tremendous health benefits and as a conduit for greater awareness. Yoga at the Great Lawn will make those benefits accessible to a much larger community.”

He believes the monumental amount of yogis at the park will “inspire us all” to be conscious of the world around us.
