Last Call: NYPD gets heavy with yoga patrol

Anyone trying to contact the NYPD press room may notice an unusually terse manner in the pour souls: apparently, the department has banned yoga classes from the press auditorium at 1 Police Plaza.

About a dozen cops have been holding free yoga classes every now and then in the auditorium, which is more usually used for news conferences.

Participants say the class helps them forget about the stress of their jobs and allows them to put crime out of their minds, if only for a while.

But as part of an effort to clean up police facilities, the auditorium floors were waxed, the locks changed and the yogis evicted.

Bad karma, man.
