After watching the San Francisco Giants play the St. Louis Cardinals at 1:05 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 3, attendees can walk onto AT&T Park’s diamond and stretch out their limbs just like their favorite baseball players.

Led by premier yoga instructor Janet Stone Yoga, Yoga Day in the Park will begin 30 minutes after the game ends and will be accompanied by live music. This is the sixth year the event has been hosted.

Yogis also will get free, Giants-themed yoga blocks to keep the fun going at home and off the field.

The event is free with a purchase of a ticket for the game, which ranges in cost from about $37 to $167. For more information, visit m.mlb.com/sf/tickets/info/special-events.
