Hope you are all enjoying the long weekend. I wanted to pop in quickly to share some details about an upcoming fitness event in Boston that I’m super excited about, yoga at Fenway Park!
The Red Sox Foundation will hold the first-ever yoga sessions at Fenway Park on Monday, September 23. Equinox and Anue by New Balance are presenting this event and calling it “FenwaYoga.” The event will raise funds for two of the foundation’s cornerstone programs, the Red Sox Scholars Program and the Reviving Baseball in Inner Cities youth baseball and softball programs. The Red Sox Scholars Program provides college scholarships, tutoring, mentoring, and enrichment programs to academically talented, financially disadvantaged Boston public middle school students. The RBI program serves more than 2,000 inner city teens each summer using the sport to promote healthy choices and valuable life-skills.
The 2013 Fenway Yogathon is scheduled for Monday, September 23. There are two classes to choose from, one held at sunrise and one held at sunset! The classes, taught by Equinox instructors, will accommodate 222 participants along the warning track each session. The classes are geared towards all levels of experience. Each participant must bring their own yoga mat and commit to raising a minimum of $250 for the foundation. There will be prizes awarded for the top three fundraisers, and each registered participant will receive an event t-shirt.
I will be there with bells on and sporting my new Anue New Balance gear! I hope to see some of you local readers there. If you are interested in signing up, you can register at fenwayoga.com.
