A “meditation mob” hits the High Line


meditation mobFlash mobs generally involve disruptive people doing loud things in public spaces—but not this one. On Thursday, June 5, Chelsea’s Yoga 216 is leading a 10-minute “meditation mob” on the High Line at 17th Street and 10th Avenue (in the “Fishbowl”).

Part of what 216 really strives to do is offer people a respite in the middle of the crazy city, to be an oasis of calm in the madness,” says owner Nicole Katz. “That doesn’t mean we don’t also LOVE being New Yorkers—we can have balance, we can have both!”

There won’t be any formal instruction, so if you’re in the area, you can just show up, sit down, meditate while tourists snap your photo, and then get back to your day (or go to Yoga 216 for refreshments).

The studio will also be taking a video of the whole thing from below and posting it online later. So we’ll all be able to gain some insights into that whole “finding calm” thing Katz is talking about. —Lisa Elaine Held
