Y'all know the drill. Tomorrow we feast. From turkey to honey-baked ham to sweet potato casserole to green beans however you please, Thanksgiving is all about the food. And being thankful and stuff. Be thankful for your bod and get out there for a morning workout before hitting the table. (And while you're at it, check out ClassPass, a new-to-Charleston fitness program, which is currently running a free trial for flexible fitness folks.)

Here's where you can sweat before (or after) ya stuff:

Spend Thanksgiving Eve with the folks at Satsang Yoga. The ever-popular Rockasana (yoga and rock music, duh) kicks off at 6:15 p.m. Wednesday.
