Assemblywoman Nicole Malliotakis (R,C,I-East Shore) is joining 5 Boro Power Yoga and the Staten Island Zoo to offer free yoga at the zoo on Wednesday, June 22, from 3:30pm-4:30pm. Malliotakis and 5 Boro Power Yoga have been partners for the past few summers in bringing free yoga classes at the Midland Beach Promenade, and will now offer a special session for kids and families. The children will learn a series of fun poses named after animals including cat, dog, cow, and snake poses.“Yoga has proven effective in enhancing focus and concentration and improves flexibility and posture. The Staten Island Zoo is one of the most beautiful locations on all of Staten Island, and they’ve provided the perfect space for these kids to get a wonderful yoga experience as they start their summer break. This is a great way to celebrate the last day of school, see the zoo animals, and get some exercise,” said Assemblywoman Malliotakis.
“We are so excited to join Assemblywoman Malliotakis at the Zoo to give the kids of Staten Island a playful and unique after school experience. This practice is an interactive and fun way to exercise outdoors and to learn about the animals at the zoo in a whole new way! We welcome everyone to join us…kids and those that are kids at heart – no experience necessary!” said Karen Torrone, owner of 5 Boro Power Yoga.
“The Zoo campus may offer a perfect setting for the yoga experience,” said Kenneth C. Mitchell, Executive Director of the Staten Island Zoo. “The environment here celebrates the natural world where yoga techniques emulate nature’s expected harmony and appreciation for our own well-being.”
Free yoga for kids will be held: Wednesday, June 22, 2016 3:30pm-4:30pm Staten Island Zoo 614 Broadway Staten Island, NY 10310
This event is suitable for all children ages 5 and up. Please bring a yoga mat or towel and arrive 15 minutes early to prepare. Space is limited, so please reserve a spot by contacting Malliotakis’ district office at 718-987-0197 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
