*m.f, ta for info on world yoga day - great idea - I probably won't be able to participate as I'll be running parkroadpilot (www.parkroadpilot.org) a fundraising arts event/party that very weekend, but praps we can raise money for the same charities.
Also, thought I'd send this on. Sadly, I am sending it too late as it's happening today, but another great idea methinks - one that I would've liked to participate in had I been in the country! Keep an eye out on youtube...

I am from a company called Roundtable Films in London and we are arranging an Flash Mob event for Saturday
18th December to take place in London, LA and Kenya all on the same day. The Flash Mob is a launch to an
awareness campaign that supports Kenyan Yoga teachers at The Africa Yoga Project who are teaching yoga to
have an affect on Tribalism in Kenya. Many of the teachers were idle youths from the slum areas in Nairobi who
have recieved a personal transformation through learning yoga and they are taking this experience to thousands
of individuals across the county, in an attempt to heal tribal boundaries.
The Flash Mob style event in London will take place in Covent Garden at 1pm, the idea is that yogis guised as
shoppers at precisely 1PM roll out their yoga mats and drop to the floor to do the Sun Salutation Series for
5 - 10 minutes. Before end the Flash yoga session with the yoga "Om" and disperse. This event will be filmed
and the video will be edited together with the footage from LA and Kenya into a video for Youtube to promote
the AYP teachers and the documentary film that is being made about them.
