Get Your OM On in 2012

New year's resolutions are one of those ridiculous concepts invented by women's self-help/flagellation magazines designed to give us yet another reason to feel that we have failed to achieve some goal. Not that we're bitter or anything. But let's start this year out right: Your NYE vow was to live healthier in 2012? Of course it was. The Sixth Annual West Palm Beach Yoga Day at Meyer Amphitheater (104 Datura St., West Palm Beach) is just the event to help you ease into this while mostly spending the day walking around and shopping. Yoga is not about competition or tallying up your achievements. It's about being calm and centered and doing something good for yourself -- and we could probably all use a little more of that. The event itself is free, with shopping and services available in the Market Place from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. There will be 21 different classes throughout the day on the East Berm, in front of the center stage, or in the Education Tent. There will be musical performances at intermission, around noon, and again just before closing, when the Tibetan Singing Bowls will ring out.

KEEP NEW TIMES BROWARD-PALM BEACH FREE... Since we started New Times Broward-Palm Beach, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of South Florida, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
Rebecca McBane is the arts and culture/food editor for New Times Broward-Palm Beach. She began her journalism career at the Sun Sentinel's community newspaper offshoot, Forum Publishing Group, where she worked as the editorial assistant and wrote monthly features as well as the weekly library and literature column, "Shelf Life." After a brief stint bumming around London's East End (for no conceivable reason, according to her poor mother), she returned to real life and South Florida to start at New Times as the editorial assistant in 2009. A native Floridian, Rebecca avoids the sun and beach at all costs and can most often be found in a well-air-conditioned space with the glow of a laptop on her face.
