Organizers of Yoga at the Great Lawn hope to draw an even bigger crowd than this Bryant Park event.

If you've always wanted join in on a Guinness World Records-worthy activity, all you'll have to do is break out your downward-facing dog. Yoga at the Great Lawn will bring 10,000 people to NYC's Central Park for what organizers call the "World's Largest Yoga Event, Ever." But to take part in the pretzel-twisting-poses fun, you have to register now.

The free class takes place June 22, but you have to register online by June 15 to get tickets, which are given out in pairs. Winners will be chosen at random. The event, which is sponsored by Flavorpill and JetBlue's TrueBlue rewards program, is open to yoga practitioners of all levels.

The massive yoga class will be led by yogi-to-the-stars Elena Brower, whose clients include Gwyneth Paltrow, Naomi Watts, Eva Mendes and Christy Turlington. Prior to the class, there will be some entertainment, including a poetry slam and live music.

Doors open at 5 pm and the class begins at 6:45 pm. Arrive early to snag a good spot. You won't need to bring any gear, since 10,000 yoga mats and water will be provided. The workout session will last about an hour and 15 minutes. Afterward, there will be a live drumming session.

In case you don't live in NYC but still want to get a chance to show off your warrior pose, JetBlue's having a contest, where you can win round-trip airfare to NYC, a two-night stay at The Standard, VIP access to the event and yoga apparel.
