LA Dodgers’ Andre Ethier Wants to Practice Yoga With You! (fees apply)

in Events, Yoga in Sports


hey! If we told you there was a chance you could meet superstar LA Dodger outfielder Andre Ethier, practice yoga with him and get your own Dodgers yoga mat would you pay $100 for it?

We received an email from the head office of the LA Dodgers and are feeling super cool and sporty, and we’re so not even! Apparently they saw we were total dorks “pretty excited” about yoga being added to baseball spring training, and that superstar players we’ve even heard of like Russell Martin and Manny Ramirez taking yoga seriously.

Well they sure had us pegged right when they sent the following info (warning: you might want to clear Dodgers/Andre Ethier fans away from the computer right now):

“On July 18th, we will be offering a 1-hour yoga session with our star outfielder Andre Ethier and his personal yoga instructor, Johanna Epps*. The session will take place on the actual field at Dodger Stadium and is a truly unique experience for yoga enthusiasts and Dodgers fans to get to know one of our players, enjoy the sun and have some fun doing yoga.  Every participant will receive a DodgersWIN yoga mat, carrying case and an autographed photo of Andre.”

Whoa, cool! we thought. Then…

“The cost for the event is $100.”

*thunk* that was the sound of our hopes being dashed. Ah well, we’re not in LA anyway! Yes indeed a hefty price tag, which we found out is actually for-profit, even though it’s being hosted by the Dodgers Women’s Initiatives Network (DodgersWIN), which endeavors to welcome more women to the sport and often participates in community outreach programs. But nope, this event is no charity (unless of course you’re a Giants fan.. zing!).

andre_ethierYou know what though? If we were Dodgers fans and we had occasion to splurge like for say a birthday, anniversary, or perhaps coercing your significant other into actually practicing yoga  (heh) this sounds like an awesome time. Plus you get schwag! (also, side note of complete unimportance – he’s 27 and he looks like this ->)

PS. yes men are encouraged to attend.
