BOSTON, MA - For the second year in a row, the Red Sox Foundation, in partnership with KIND Healthy Snacks, will hold yoga sessions at Fenway Park on Sunday, June 8. "FenwaYoga" will raise funds for two of the foundation's cornerstone programs, the Red Sox Scholars Program and the RBI Youth Baseball and Softball Programs.
Two classes, each accommodating 222 participants along the warning track, will be taught by celebrity yoga instructor Mandy Ingber, a New York Times bestselling author and the creator of Yogalosophy. For over 18 years Mandy has motivated people with her light-hearted approach and unique teaching style. Her public appeal grew as a celebrity yoga instructor when she did a magazine spread in 2006 with client Jennifer Aniston. Other clients include Kate Beckinsale, Ricki Lake, Brooke Shields, and Helen Hunt to name a few.
The two morning classes will take place at 9 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. and are geared towards all levels of experience. Each participant must commit to raising a minimum of $250 for the foundation. There will be prizes awarded for the top three fundraisers. KIND will provide snacks made from nutritionally-rich ingredients following each session.

The Red Sox Scholars Program is presented by Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and provides college scholarships, tutoring, mentoring, and enrichment programs to academically talented, financially disadvantaged Boston public middle school students. The RBI Youth Baseball and Softball Program serves more than 2,000 inner city teens each summer using the sport to promote healthy choices and valuable life-skills.
