It's mind over madness as New Yorkers greet the sun at the annual, all-day solstice yoga fest in Times Square in 2007.

Best known for a winter festivity—New Year's Eve—the vast intersection has hosted the summer stretch-a-thon since 2003, when just a handful of practitioners showed up. In 2007 more than 800 people registered.

The 2008 event will be held on June 21, the day after the solstice.
