10,000 yogis dressed in white will take over Central Park this summer


LoleIf you see mobs of people dressed in white moving towards Central Park on September 2, don’t be alarmed.

Montreal-based fitness fashion brand Lole just announced it’s bringing its popular White Tour to the iconic green space this year to attempt to host the largest yoga class the park has ever seen—with 10,000 students.

“We wanted to share the Lole White Tour on a much larger basis this year,” Lole CEO Bernard Mariette says. “We decided the best place to present that is in New York, where life is very stressful, since the whole concept of Lole is about having a good life in an urban environment.”

Since 2011, Lole has hosted the traveling mega-yoga event series in cool locations around the world, like the Grand Palais on the Champs-Elysees in Paris, and the Museum of Modern Art in New York City, with 30,000 people total participating in the events to date.

This year, the Lole White Tour will stop in six cities—Paris, Whistler, Montreal, Toronto, New York, and Los Angeles—from June to November.

Yoga dynamos Elena Brower, Colleen Saidman Yee, and Rodney Yee will co-teach in Central Park (yeah, you need multiple instructors for that many students), and complimentary tickets that include entry, a Lole yoga mat, and access to onsite activities that will be released through a weekly lottery on Lole’s website starting on June 21. (One thousand tickets will also be held for VIP entry at $115, which guarantees you a good spot closer to the stage.)

Whichever ticket you choose, you should probably start cultivating good karma now, since mega yoga events in Central Park have a kind of curse hanging over them. Flavorpill had to pull the plug on its 7,000-person Yoga on the Great Lawn class in 2o1o due to a thunderstorm after just one sun (rain?) salutation, and then canceled its attempt at a reboot as GLBL Yoga in 2012, due to lack of funding. Maybe this is finally the year Central Park yoga will prevail?—Jamie McKillop
