Crowds gathered to watch as the mass yoga session was held to mark the longest day of the year and the start of summer – with some participants coming from the other side of the world.
For those who could not attend the yoga session, event organisers Times Square Alliance streamed it live on their website for people all around the world to take part at home.
There was a morning, afternoon and evening class held on Tuesday – and each participant required a yoga mat, although a sponsor provided free mats and gifts to the first 1,000 people at each class.
