The relaxation technique, somewhat like yoga, makes you feel as though you are floating on water.

You may experience yourself drifting in and out of sleep during the gentle and quiet sessions. You will gain a deeper sense of well-being and relaxation, with a better understanding of your body and how it feels. If you suffer migraines or back or neck pain, the instructor will advice you on the specific technique to alleviate the area of concern.

Mats and materials are provided. Come in loose and comfortable pants and clothing. Most people remove their shoes.

Get ready to have an amazing experience. This is a very popular class.

On Sunday, November 10, in conjunction with the Parks Department and the Department of Sanitation, the Staten Island Athletic Club will be holding the first ever race at Freshkills Park. The Scholarship Cross-Country Race, a 5.8-mile race that traverses the hills and valleys of Freshkills Park, promises participants a sweeping 360-degree view of the Manhattan skyline, the rolling hills of Staten Island, and the New Jersey Highlands.

The purpose of the race is to provide scholarships for deserving high school seniors living on the Island. Since 2003, the Staten Island Athletic Club through the Scholarship Cross-Country Race has raised over $25,000, money that has helped many high school students pay off their college expenses.

The first 125 registered runners of the race will receive a race T-shirt. All runners will be given free coffee and pastries courtesy of Starbucks of Hylan Boulevard. About a dozen businesses from Staten Island and Brooklyn will be sponsoring the event. L.A. Fitness of Travis will be awarding the top finishers a 3-month membership to their gym.

Yearn for adventure? Join the Freshkills Park Staff as they hike areas they are developing into new parkland on Staten Island.

This hike will bring you behind the scenes into natural sections of the park, typically restricted from public access, to introduce you to the beauty of the hills and creeks in Freshkills Park. Take advantage of this opportunity to learn about the park development while getting out in nature and staying in shape.

At 2,200 acres, Freshkills Park will be almost three times the size of Central Park and the largest park developed in New York City in over 100 years. The transformation of what was formerly the world’s largest landfill into a productive and beautiful cultural destination will make the park a symbol of renewal and an expression of how our society can restore balance to its landscape.

Hiking programs feature intensity levels ranging from light (a leisurely stroll on mostly paved paths), moderate (longer, faster paced hikes on rugged terrain), to vigorous (long distance, with hills and rugged terrain). This hike includes elevations with gravel and dirt terrain. For all hiking programs we recommend wearing comfortable shoes or boots, and packing water, sunscreen, bugspray and a light snack.

Fitness Hikes feature less talking and more walking, for those who don’t mind a vigorous two hour hike. Hiking programs feature intensity levels ranging from light (a leisurely stroll on mostly paved paths), to moderate (longer, faster paced hikes on rugged terrain), to vigorous (long distance, with hills and rugged terrain). For all hiking programs we recommend wearing comfortable shoes or boots, and packing water and a light snack.

The relaxation technique, somewhat like yoga, makes you feel as though you are floating on water.

You may experience yourself drifting in and out of sleep during the gentle and quiet sessions. You will gain a deeper sense of well-being and relaxation, with a better understanding of your body and how it feels. If you suffer migraines or back or neck pain, the instructor will advice you on the specific technique to alleviate the area of concern.

Mats and materials are provided. Come in loose and comfortable pants and clothing. Most people remove their shoes.

Get ready to have an amazing experience. This is a very popular class.

This is a great trail run for all abilities. There will be a 10K, 25K, and for the hearty, a 50K course – all in the beautiful Staten Island Greenbelt. The trails are tight and technical. As you climb (yes there are some killer climbs in Staten Island) you can see views of NYC and New Jersey. You can travel for miles and miles through the Greenbelt and forget that you’re in NYC. All trails are completely marked so all you need to worry about is running. Start time for 25 and 50K runners is 8:00 a.m.; start time for 10K runners is 10:00 a.m. There will be plenty of food, snacks, and energy drinks at several aid stations along the way. When you finish, there will be a huge party just for you!! (OK, for the other finishers as well.) This is one event you don’t want to miss! Register at http://www.onestoprace.com/search/event.aspx?id=17786.

A volunteer opportunity: Volunteers are needed to assist with setting up the event and handing out refreshments to runners. Meet at the Henry Kaufmann Camp Grounds, 1131 Manor Road. To volunteer for any of our events you must be age 14 and up/under 14 with an adult. If you are interested in volunteering, please RSVP by calling (718) 667-2165 ext 311 or emailing Jeanne.Paliswiat@parks.nyc.gov.
