There is just something about the greater Boston area yoga community that is incredibly special. I can't put it to words perfectly but walking into Gillette Stadium Field House each year for Yoga Reaches Out's New England Yogathon, I can just feel it. The energy in the room is palpable. It's the day of the year when everyone gets together to rally for a connected cause, giving back to the community, giving back to children and families in need. This year, together, we raised over $300,000 for Boston Children's Hospital and Yoga Reaches Out, specifically benefitting the Hale Family Center which will be expanding its yoga, meditation, reiki, massage, zumba, and all things lovely offerings to the families and patients at Children's. If that doesn't sound like the perfect beneficiary, then I don't know what does. At one of our committee meetings this year, I was able to tour the facility and can tell you first hand, this place is incredible. If my family had a facility like this when I was going through my cardiac surgeries at age three, I know they would have benefitted from it tremendously.

I have photographed this event for five years now and I have gotten to know so many of you. You are all amazing people. Thank you for all that you do, for raising money, for joining together as a community, for being there, and for always giving me a smile or hug. Congratulations on an amazing job well done! Namaste.

And now, enjoy some photographs of your gorgeous selves! Click here to view all photographs from the day. Make sure to click on the three bar menu on the top left of the page to see all of the galleries.

  • Time Saving Tip - You can favorite your favorite images and download them as a group. After you favorite them, click "download all" and check the box next to "my favorites" and follow the instructions to download just those photographs and not all 1,000,000. How cool is that?
  • Printing Tip - The first three menus have my copyright on the photographs and are labeled "FOR SOCIAL MEDIA". The second two do not and are labeled "FOR PRINTING". If you'd like to order prints from the event, you'll want to use the second two menus. If favoriting first, make sure to favorite from these menus. If you order from the FOR SOCIAL MEDIA menus, your prints will all arrive with my copyright on them! Whoops.
  • Sharing Tip - You can share right from the gallery if you'd like!

Six Tips On How to Get Photographed at Yogathon

There is something pretty incredible about walking into the Field House at Gillette Stadium each year and seeing it fill up with 1,000 other like-minded yogis all there together to support Boston Children's Hospital. The collective Yoga Reaches Out energy in the room is truly palpable.

In case you're wondering what 1,000 yogis at Gillette Stadium looks like! Here is a panoramic shot at last year's yogathon!

The only downside to there being 1,000 of you is that, well, there is only one of me. In total there will be four photographers {shout out to Ashley Bilodeau, Tamar Melen and Jay Kiely!}, 1,000 students, and hundreds of additional amazing contributors - presenters, speakers, marketplace vendors, in-kind donors, volunteers, etc. - so while we usually are able to cover an incredible number of people, we may not be able to get a shot of everyone individually.

 

Given that, I've put together some tips on how to get you your next profile pic and your studio their next newsletter highlight photo by moi.

  1. Go to Yogathon! {Hey, I had to put the link in somewhere! Join my Team or Create a Team.}
  2. Enjoy yourself! Dance, laugh, smile, meditate, get into it!
  3. Ask me! Tap my shoulder, call my name, introduce yourself and show me where you are on the field!
  4. Participate in the group activities like linking arms, hands, feet, etc. I love group shots!
  5. Get your team together! And then call me over to photograph you as a team!
  6. Go viral with last year's photographs! If I know you are going to help spread the word about Yoga Reaches Out, Yogathon, and Tracy Rodriguez Photography, I want to get photographs in your hands! The photography is not only a gift to you but a major fundraising vehicle for the organization so help us spread the good word!
