Free yoga, fitness walking

City Parks Foundation welcomes all New Yorkers, age 60 and over, to participate in CityParks Seniors Fitness presented by Airbnb. 


The Spring 2015 season of Seniors Fitness programs will begin the week of April 27th, and will offer free tennis lessons, yoga instruction and fitness walking in 15 parks across the city, including Soundview, Pelham Bay, and Van Cortlandt Parks in the Bronx. 


CityParks Seniors Fitness has served over 7,000 participants since it began in 2006 and aims to keep neighborhood parks a great place for community activity. The program encourages New Yorkers to maximize the health benefits of staying active at all ages. Even in moderate amounts, exercise can help participants feel better, maintain or lose weight, reduce risk of heart disease and diabetes, and minimize the symptoms of arthritis. 


“Exercise is so important at all ages, but it is especially important for seniors who typically lead more sedentary lifestyles,” says Mike Silverman, Director of Sports at City Parks Foundation. “We’ve found that exercising even just once a week helps participants feel better mentally and emotionally. Seniors Fitness is a great opportunity for seniors to be social and meet new people in their neighborhoods, while getting outside and having some fun.” 


All activities in this eight-week fitness program take place once or twice a week at each location through June 19th. 


For more information about City Parks Foundation’s free Seniors Fitness programs, please call the Sports Department at (718) 760-6999. All equipment and instruction is provided free of charge. Sessions are one or two hours, once or twice a week.

And then, of course, Friday evening is the first evening of Night Lights. Hooray!
