BK skate park pairs yoga and skateboarding

PROSPECT-LEFFERTS GARDENS -

A Brooklyn skate park is pairing the philosophies of yoga with the art of skateboarding.

Skate Yogi in Prospect Lefferts Gardens offers classes for adults and children who want to learn how to nose grind or kick flip while drawing inspiration from yoga.

The idea for the skate park studio came from owner Kevin Banahan, a former yoga teacher.

Banahan says he found that the two activates share similar qualities.

"Kids learn a lot about social dynamics of getting along, encouraging one another and competing with themselves and not each other," he says.

Skate Yogi also offers afterschool programs and day camps.
