Do the downward dogrun!

A bunch of yogis got loose and limber during Yoga in the Park on June 26, sponsored by state Sen. Marty Golden (R–Marine Park). Breathing in and out, and stretching out your body is the best way to unwind at the end of a busy day, said one Gerritsen Beacher.

“It was very relaxing,” said Michael Zwosta. “It’s just a very peaceful way of ending the day after all the chaotic moments, just to put your mind at ease.”

The routine is perfect for beginners just learning the moves and those looking to advance their skills, said novice yogi Maxine Weinhaus, who suggested the instructor raise her voice a little louder for the people in the back.

“This is my second time. I’ll definitely go back. It was good,” said Weinhaus, whose favorite pose is downward dog. “A lot of people showed up, a lot of people are interested obviously.”

Golden’s Yoga in the Park is offered several Mondays and Thursday evenings at 7 pm through August, including July 10, July 27, August 7, and August 24.

Yoga in the Park at Marine Park (Fillmore Avenue between Marine Parkway and Madison Place). Free.
