Free Yoga in the Park - Forest Park - 5/30 - 9/12

For all those who have been following our planning and creation of a Yoga in the Park program in Forest Park we have excellent news. After much planning and coordinating with sponsors, the Parks Department, Yoga Instructors and our local Kew Gardens Council for Recreation and the Arts we can finally announce that we have a Free Yoga in the Park program in place! Our Yoga instructor will be Gillian from Living Yoga in Forest Hills. We will be having the free 1 hour sessions every Saturday morning starting on May 30, 2009 going until September 12, 2009 from 10:00 - 11:00 am (weather permitting) in Forest Park at Sobelsohn Park which is between Park Lane and Union Tpk in Kew Gardens. This spot is very open and beautiful providing tree cover for very hot days and open field for normal days. As well it is very centrally located within short walking distance from all of Kew Gardens and Forest Hills. All ages and skill levels are welcome (minors must bring a parent or guardian) Bring your own mats or towels. An official event page in being created on the NYC Parks Dept. website and I will post that link when it is done.
