Chelsea Rec Center, 25th and 9th NYC. Best thing ... it's free to members, and membership is a recession suppression super deal - $75/year, $10/year for seniors - pools, access to all sister centers etc.
I was asked if I would teach a senior class, since their needs are underserved a world where we worship the youth we all lose ...
Since I already teach at Hudson Guild Senior Center, I'm aiming this class at Fit 50+.
And I've called it BOOMA! YOGA to be less ageist.
(f-o-g-i-s did cross my mind but I'll wait til I'm 50 before I dare float that one).
So don't expect any serious pretzel moves, but feel perfectly free to upstage me, as Colin Freestone, one of my customers, is doing in this picture. Colin's a long time yogi who offers yoga to cyclists on the trips he leads to Indonesia.
So yes! Cyclists welcome - in which case bring on the pretzels or you might find yourself looking like this.
I was certified in 2009, which is just the start. Although I've had taught various cycling groups since then, this is my first regular gig. It is not a paid position, so by coming along, you'll not only helping me build my teaching practice, you'll help and keep underfunded centers like this alive for people who can't afford the fancier gyms.
Please pass on to any couch potatoes with flexible remote control arms - we need to get cracking on the other arm, right?
