Down Dog Is for the Birds? Nope, It's for the KIDS!

If you know me, you know that yoga is my second religion.  Which means that most of the time, I am a lapsed yogi.  But, like my Catholic roots, I am comforted by the fact that whenever I am ready, and whenever I need it, yoga is there, patiently waiting for me.

You may also know how much I love a good cause.  I took an Archetype quiz recently that ranked me squarely as an advocate.  More than anything else.  

When I saw that there was a local event that combined advocacy and yoga, I knew that I had to be there.  So, this June 8, 2014, I will be in Fenway Park, doing yoga on the warning track, in support of the Red Sox Foundation.  (It's on a Sunday, so I am going to say that this counts as church!)

The Red Sox Foundation endeavors to support at-risk children in the Boston community.  This yogathon will benefit two programs: the Red Sox Scholars and RBI Youth Baseball and Softball.  You can read all about them here.  In my former life, I worked at the Colonel Daniel Marr Boys and Girl Club in Dorchester so I know how important it is to have high quality programs for at-risk kids.  

In addition to the very cool crowd of yogis who will be joining me on 6/8, our class will be led by none other than the lovely Mandy Ingber!
"Having the body you want begins with loving the body you have."  Mandy Ingber, who many may know is Jennifer Aniston's yoga guru and friend, is the founder of Yogalosophy.  She is a celebrity fitness, self-love expert, speaker, producer, instructor and author.

I am so excited to be a part of this event.  My kids are beyond thrilled to come watch me down dog on the warning track, and visit the Expo in the stadium.  Won't you help support my fundraising goal, the Red Sox Foundation and kids in Boston?  You contributions are greatly appreciated!

And, of course, a quick shout out to the major sponsors who are helping to make this day a reality!
