Chances are strong that if Luna Bars and Soy Joys comprise your daily grub intake, you’re probably already familiar with foam mats and the Downward Dog. But even if chakra-balancing stretch-a-thons aren’t usually your racket, rookie guru, you’ll want to meditate ‘til your shattered spirit is renewed at the free Second Annual Yoga Day at Meyer Amphitheatre (104 Datura St., West Palm Beach).

This ain’t just for trail mix-fueled upper-tax bracketers; actually, there’s no requirement to join in on the festivities. “Some people think they need to be flexible in order to perform yoga,” Yogi Therese Abair gushes. “They say, ‘I can’t touch my toes, so why bother?’” Not a prob: Yoga poses here are awfully basic (the Tree, the Whooping Crane, and Mountain are a cakewalk – just beware the Scorpion), so flop down today from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Call 561-281-5895, or visit
