I’ve spent many days at Wrigley Field, beginning when I was a young child. My grandparents, loyal Cubs fans, lived on Cornelia and we often incorporated a visit with a walk to a Cubs Game.
I’ve entertained work clients, watched playoff games and also listened to some of my favorite musicians including Elton John, Paul McCartney and Sting inside the historic stadium in the middle of our city.
Never have I seen Wrigley Field as peaceful as I did Sunday morning, as a thousand yogis quietly filed inside the empty stadium and lined up their mats along the infield.
Lululemon sponsored this complimentary event to celebrate their new Southport store. Local ambassadors Sharon Wentz, Laurdes Paredes and Wade Gotwalls led the multi level hour and a half class. The serene music echoed through the sound system and the instructors inspired us in a challenging practice that included a fun forward fold wave and a catcher’s squat.
The sun was beating down of us, yet we felt the lakefront breeze as my bare feet touched the pristine grass where many great players once stood.
Looking out at the empty bleachers during Warrior Two, or gazing at Harry Carey’s Announcer Box during Tadasana, made for a history making morning.
