Prospect Park Tennis Center now offers summer yoga classes

When Deb Stern discovered a gorgeous outdoor deck going unused at the Prospect Park Tennis Center, the Brooklyn yoga teacher rallied the racquet-wielders to use the space for summer yoga classes. Her wish was granted! You don’t need to be a tennis player to attend the one-hour classes:

Monday at 6:30pm Open
Wednesday at 6:30pm Beginner
Saturday at 12pm noon Open
Saturday at 1pm Kids (age 10+)
Sunday at 6pm Beginner

Stern has a sunny disposition and a solid sports background: She trained in Vinyasa Flow at Wake Up Yoga in Philadelphia with Corinna Benner and Jill Manning (voted best of Philly, Editor’s Choice and Citypaper Best Yoga Studio) and with Shiva Rea in the Prana Flow–style at Exhale in Venice Beach for two years.

“A typical class at the Tennis Center offers breath awareness, centering and meditation, well-sequenced and clearly explained asanas (physical postures), and always Savasana,” says Stern, who also surfs and studies martial arts. “Plus it’s surrounded by trees and sky!”

Yoga classes cost $15 at the Prospect Park Tennis Center, 50 Parkside Ave., at Coney Island Ave, in the clubhouse, 718-436-2500 (reservations are requested; mats are provided).
