The Town of North Hempstead has announced that the Town’s Parks and Recreation Department is now offering outdoor drop-in summer recreation programs at Manorhaven Beach Park in Port Washington, Mary Jane Davies Green in Manhasset, and Michael J. Tully Park in New Hyde Park from May 18 through Sept. 2.
The classes are completely free and do not require registration. Each class is designed for adults and will be limited to 25 participants and individuals will be expected to wear masks and follow social distancing guidelines.
“We hope that our residents will take advantage of these fun exercise programs that are designed to increase physical fitness, while staying safe and keeping social distancing guidelines in mind,” said North Hempstead Supervisor Judi Bosworth. “With Flow Yoga, Yo Chi, and Cardio Strength there are different classes to fit all interests.”
This summer’s offerings will include Flow Yoga at Manorhaven on Sundays from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m.; Flow Yoga at Michael J.

Flow Yoga will feature a series of poses that stimulate the body, breath, and mind. The class will work to enhance balance, relieve stress and focus on the importance of breath in your life. Participants must bring a yoga mat and block.
Yo Chi is a unique class which will combine the stability of yoga and the slow mobility of Tai Chi with flexibility and balance – including mind and breath. Participants must bring a yoga mat.
Cardio Strength will focus on heart-healthy low impact cardio. This will include weighted strength exercises and mat floor exercises. The program will bring the mind to the muscles. Participants must bring a mat and light weights.
Classes will be held outdoors weather permitting. There are no rain dates. Each class are first come, first serve and for North Hempstead residents only. For more information, please call 311 or (516) 869-6311 from outside of the Town.
