This will loosen up those joints.

The City Parks Foundation is providing free yoga for seniors at Cunningham Park in Oakland Gardens one of the best-kept secrets in town, seniors say.

Youre out in the open, in nature. Look at the sky here! said Stephen Liebman, 64. Youre meditating with the trees.

The class runs Tuesdays and Thursdays through June 20 at 10 a.m., and has a loyal group of about 10 all over the age of 60, who say the deep stretching and exercise is like WD-40 for their bodies and keeps them one step ahead of their children on the coolness curve.

I feel great, said Sandy Mounsey, 65. My asthma has improved 100% since I started!

Even the groups instructor, Bill Ryan, is nearly a senior, a 57-year-old tractor trailer driver for Con Ed who took up yoga in 2008.

A lot of guys dont realize the benefit, they think its a girls thing, said Ryan, who has tried to get his son into the practice.
