What do yoga and baseball have in common? Absolutely nothing unless you spent your Thursday night like I did! Last week I drove down to Charleston to attend Downward Facing Riverdogs. It was a yoga class taught by one of my yoga-idols, Kathryn Budig, at the Riverdogs field in downtown Charleston.
I have always wanted to take a yoga class from Kathryn after reading her book, Aim True last year. When I found out she was coming back to her old stomping grounds, I knew I had to go!
I drove down early enough to hit up The Daily near downtown Charleston. People rave about the food which includes avocado toast. That’s exactly what I ordered and let me tell you, it’s the best I’ve ever had!
After fueling up, I went for a stroll around downtown Charleston. There were so many tourists out and about so it was a little crowded on the sidewalks. But nothing could stop me from enjoying the gorgeous lowcountry weather and the sights of rainbow row. After an hour or so I headed to Joseph P. Riley Jr. Park for Downward Facing Riverdogs!
A part of my ticket was to meet and greet with Kathryn. When we got to the field the staff took a few of us up to the exclusive club house where we would meet her. I’m not going to lie…I was fangirling a little bit! I brought her book along with me so she could sign it but they also provided books for anyone who didn’t have one.
The class began promptly at 7pm as the Carolina sun set behind us. The weather could not be more perfect! It was a gorgeous 73 degrees with a light breeze and not a cloud in the sky. Despite getting a bunch of baseball field grass on my mat, the experience was amazing! Kathryn’s teaching style is so much fun! She had us laughing, falling out of poses and all in all having an amazing time. I didn’t want it to end!
