Esther Yang says…
The pandemic hit New Yorkers hard. It deeply saddened me to see shops closing down and people getting sick and dying. I also lost some of my closest friends from Covid-19. So I wanted to bring something positive to this great City and give back during this difficult time.
Since I’ve been a yoga teacher for over 20 years, teaching free daily 15-minute yoga classes was one way I could return blessings to the community. It also allowed me to create an informal neighborly support group so we can check in on each other, especially with those who are living alone.
I know that sometimes we make up excuses like I’m not flexible or strong enough, or I don’t have time or money. But with my FREE, easy-peasy, 15-minute strengthening yoga and meditation daily classes you’ll be able to fit these classes into your schedule and become stronger and more flexible. You can join in and do the exercises on a mat, the floor, or a chair, or just come to keep us company. So no more excuses!
I have taught yoga for over 20 years, including at Gilda’s Club, Cancer Care, Chair Yoga – Assembly Member Rebecca Seawright’s office, Senior Centers, Schools, Hospitals and other organizations.
Wherever you are in your life, always be mindful and check with your doctor, especially if you are starting a new exercise regime.
Yoga has been around for 5000 years. So, something has to be right about it to last this long. My late wise herbalist grandmother always said that when we take care of our bodies, our bodies take care of us. So come join me Mondays – Fridays, 10:15am – 10:30am! FREE

An Elevator Storehouse once sat alongside the Queensboro Bridge. Much more than a place for storage, it was torn down in 1970, before Welfare Island became Roosevelt. But a significant, salvaged piece returns home tomorrow. By David Stone The Roosevelt Island Daily News All photos courtesy of the Roosevelt Island Historical Society. An Elevator Storehouse
