5 Boro Power Yoga hosted the free class near Turtle Circle at Midland Beach Saturday.

Assemblywoman Nicole Malliotakis and the New York City Parks Department sponsored the event.

She says she first thought of the idea to help people after Hurricane Sandy, and its been a hit ever since. 

"They were going through an extremely stressful period in their lives, and I thought what better way than to bring yoga--

even if its just for an hour, they can get their minds off of their troubles," Malliotakis said.

"We're getting out in the environment and not using any resources except for our breath," stated instructor Karen Torrone.

"People should try it and they'd find that it is very relaxing and keeps you focused throughout the course of the day," said resident William Abell.

The next beach front class will be Monday August 24th. To reserve your spot call (718) 987-0197.
