We’re big fans of all things yoga. Especially those pop-up yoga events in breweries and museums around Boston. And this weekend, it’s actually possible to roll your mat out at one of the most sacred spots in the city.
That’s right, gang. It’s time to take your yoga practice to the ballpark. FenwaYoga is here.
As diehard Sox fans and yogis, combining two of our biggest passions into one event is a dream come true. It’s even sweeter because FenwaYoga is a charitable event that benefits local youth through the Red Sox Foundation.
FenwaYoga includes a one-hour, all levels, Vinyasa-style yoga class taught by Tim Samp, a Boston-based CorePower yoga instructor. CorePower is all about combining a tough physical workout with the mindfulness of the yoga practice, so expect the class to challenge and calm you. You won’t be on the field for the event – that’s reserved for players only – but you’ll be pretty close, lining up around the park on the warning track.
But! To register for FenwaYoga, you must commit to fundraising or donating $125 (plus a $10 registration fee). Not cheap (almost as much as a beer at the game), but it seems like a small price to pay for getting to practice yoga at Fenway. And don’t forget that the money raised goes to a really good cause – the Red Sox Scholars and RBI Youth Baseball and Softball.
All participating yogis will get a new Kulae yoga mat, which means you won’t need to schlep yours on the T this weekend. Plus, there will be refreshments, exhibitors, and vendors hanging out after savasana.
It’s all going down this Saturday, September 24 at 9am at Fenway. The early start time ensures you’ll have plenty of time to catch the Sox beat the Rays later that day. Maybe even at one of these outdoor drinking spots in Boston…many of which also show the game.
Better than playoff baseball!
There are only 250 spots available for Saturday’s FenwaYoga. So if you want to participate, it’s time to reserve your space for an event you’re sure to never forget. Oh, and let’s go Sox.
