New York - Several thousand New Yorkers calmly invaded Times Square on Wednesday, transforming it into an immense outdoor yoga class to salute the arrival of summer.

Some 1 500 yoga mats were distributed free for the occasion, and pedestrian spaces in New York's most frenetic crossroads were completely covered.

The first of the free short courses began at 07:30, and the last was scheduled for 20:30, to the delight of tourists.
