A wide range of attendees participated in Downward Facing Riverdog despite the looming threat of a torrential downpour on Saturday morning. Yogis of all ages came out for a fun, high-energy class at the Joe with Kathryn Budig, yoga teacher, writer, and founder of Poses for Paws, a charitable organization dedicated to raising money for animal shelters through yoga. After about 40 minutes of the supposed-to-be hour-long event and some light drizzling, the skies opened up sending guests out of the stadium.
Event vendors included Orange Theory Fitness, Pet Helpers, Verde (presenting sponsor), Charleston Coffee Cup, Blend Juice Bar, Blue Bicycle Books, Oxbow Designs, SchoolWheels Direct, Headley Family Chiropractic, Kitchen Magic, Laura Jane Louise Designs, Yoga House, and Crews Subaru of Charleston. Chris Dodson provided live entertainment for the crowds and Budwig held a book signing at the end of the morning.
There was a large turnout for the Saturday morning event.
While participants practiced their poses, Budwig had helpers going around to correct and help with positioning.
The class remained cheerful depsite the ominous sky.
