These seniors are about to sweat!

A pair of citywide organizations will offer free, twice-weekly exercise classes for senior citizens at a trio of Kings County parks this spring.

City Parks Foundation and the New York Road Runners will co-sponsor the sweat sessions for seniors ages 65 and older at Marine Park, Coney Island’s Kaiser Park, and Fort Greene’s South Oxford Park beginning April 22. Offerings include:

• Hour-long yoga classes at Marine Park’s Nature Center, at Avenue U and E. 32nd Street, on Mondays and Wednesdays from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m.

• Three-hour-long tennis lessons at Kaiser Park, at Neptune and Bayview avenues, on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9 a.m. to noon.

• Hour-long yoga classes at South Oxford Park, at S. Oxford Street and Atlantic Avenue, on Wednesdays and Fridays from 11 a.m. to noon.

Active oldsters can register for the classes — which will take place through June 14 — by signing up online.
