Zumba, Zumba Gold, and Yoga

The Department of Parks and Recreation is pleased to announce three adult programs.

The community spoke and we listened!!!

Zumba, Zumba Gold (low impact for beginners and seniors) and Yoga will be offered once per week. One hour per class.

Winter session starts the week of January 11th
will be offered every Monday night. Classes will be at East End School (Community Room) from 7pm-8pm.
Zumba Gold
will be offered every Wednesday night, same location, same time.

Please note: These classes will be conducted in a Board of Education building. Board of Education activities may cancel a class on any given night. In the event of a cancellation, every effort will be made to change the location just for that evening. This is something that Recreation has no control over.

Zumba and Zumba Gold will be instructed by a certified instructor Ms. Diana Ehling, a North Plainfield resident.

Yoga, is well suited for the newcomer to Yoga and for those who love to continue focusing on the fundamentals of the basic Yoga poses and correct breathing. The class consists of relaxation, gradual stretching, Yoga poses, breath work and guided visualization.

Yoga will be instructed by a certified yoga instructor, borough employee, Ms Dana Biggs.

Classes will be held every Thursday evening at the Vermeule Community Center.

Our plan is to offer these programs weekly up to Thanksgiving, take a break until after the winter holidays and resume in January.

Starting Tuesday April 7th, 2020, we will be offering a new Yoga program.The adult advanced beginner yoga class is for anyone that has experience with the basic yoga postures and alignment. In this class we will offer classic hatha poses (asanas), breath work( Pranayama) and meditation. This class has a different format than the adult beginner class. The class begins at 7:00pm and ends at 8:00pm. Please bring a mat and towel  and dress comfortably. This program will be offered on Tuesdays only at the Vermeule Community Center.

Fees: Recreation will be offering daily passes for either program for $10. If you like the class and are interested in purchasing a “10” class card, you may purchase the card for $80 and save 20%. The 10 class card may be used for either Zumba, Zumba Gold and/or Yoga. Each time a class is taken the instructor will punch a hole in your card. When all 10 holes are punched, it’s time to buy a new card.

Want to bring a guest for him or her to try? No problem, the instructor will punch two holes on that particular day.


Our instructors will not accept payment for classes. All passes must be prepaid through the recreation department.
