What is Bliss at the Ballpark?
Bliss at the Ballpark is a large scale yoga event at Progressive Field. Hundreds of yogis gather to practice in the Right Field District over looking Cleveland’s own field of dreams.
We flow through a 60-minute All Levels practice and then attend the game later that evening. The Indians play the LA Angels at 7:10pm. Go Tribe!
What makes this event special?
Practicing yoga inside one of Cleveland's most magical and historic landmarks is unforgettable experience. After the practice we gather back at the Progressive Field and are invited to participate in the Pre-Game Parade around the Warning Track. Being on the field looking up into the stands is indescribable and adds another amazing experience for the Bliss at the Ballpark students.
We are extra lucky this year because August 4th is also a Rock 'n' Blast night! There are only two for the entire season and our event takes place on one of them. Rock 'n' Blast is an awesome fireworks and light show that is set to music! There are so many amazing offerings for this year's event, you definitely wont want to miss it.
Do students have to be experienced yogis to attend?
Nope! Students of all levels are welcome to be a part of the days events.
What type of yoga training do the Indians players do?
Inner Bliss Yoga Studio is both proud and honored to be the Official Yoga Provider to the Cleveland Indians and their affiliate teams.
Tammy Lyons, the owner of Inner Bliss worked with the Cleveland Indians staff to develop a specific baseball yoga program designed to fit both the players' and the organization's needs. We have a team of teachers from our studios that travels to the affiliates to offer a consistent and baseball-specific practice to the players all around Ohio.
How does yoga make an athlete perform better?
Many athletes are practicing yoga as a part of their training not only for the physical benefits it offers but for the mental benefits too. A consistent yoga practice can improve strength, flexibility and balance, decreases the chance of injury, improves core strength and body control and offers a chance for athletes to recover. Yoga also increases focus, concentration, body awareness and can reduce stress and anxiety.
