There’s nothing quite like attending a baseball game on a warm, summer afternoon. From the cheering fans in the crowd to the wide variety of mid-game snacks, the atmosphere is unbeatable. 

Yet in a few weeks, for the second time this summer, a day at the park will become even more exciting, as Nationals fans will have the opportunity to participate in a group yoga practice following the ballgame. 

The 45-minute class will be led by Chris Parkinson, a certified-instructor of VIDA Fitness, a boutique studio with several locations in NoVA and Washington, DC.

Parkinson is no rookie in the outfield, as he’s led this event several times for participants of all ages and skill levels. While Parkinson leads the crowd from a large stage within the stadium, between 10 to 20 other instructors from VIDA will be present to assist new yogis with the proper movements and align poses of those with more experience.

In addition to a relaxing lesson, individuals will get to take home a unique yoga mat, stemming from the Nationals Partnership with Kaiser Permanente, as well as other surprise giveaway items. Plus, be on the lookout for a few of the racing presidents who may be practicing their downward dog alongside fans in the outfield. // Nationals Park: 1500 S. Capitol St. SE, Washington, DC; Aug. 18, 1:35 p.m.; $46-$80
