Monument Square sees plenty of the unexpected. The flash mob that appeared there Thursday might’ve been a first. Local yogis rolled out their mats and did a choreographed performance to The Beatles’ “With a Little Help from My Friends.” And as quickly as they came together, they were suddenly gone again, leaving outdoor diners and passersby wondering…wha???
The yoga flash mob was in honor of YogaFest, which takes to Portland’s East End next month.
