New Workshops & Events at YogaFish!
Dear friends: Please keep in mind that our space is limited. Reserving via MindBody’s online scheduling system is the best way to ensure your spot in class. We also ask that when visiting our studio, you park in the middle of the lot (not in front of a building) or in one of the two spots directly in front of our space. This keeps our neighbors happy, which is very important to us. Thanks for your help!
Connected Warriors with Maggie Turmel is ongoing, Mondays from 3-4. This is not a YogaFish class for the public but is offered through Connected Warriors only for active service members, vets and their families. Please visit the Connected Warriors website for more information. If you know someone who may be interested, please help us spread the word.
The Gift of Present Time with Robin Jillson. Saturday, January 14, 1-3:30. “Be in the moment.” “Stay present.” “Enjoy the Now.” Most of us have heard those expressions, but few of us have learned exactly what that means and how to achieve it. This fun and experiential workshop teaches you to be fully present in your body and emotions and give you tools you can use immediately to improve your happiness and well-being. Our time together will acquaint you with the right brain and how it perceives time, teach you to recognize physical and emotional present time, and provide you with guided experiences of present time. There will be plenty of time for questions, discussion and suggestions for everyday practice. Tuition: $20. For yogis and non-yogis alike- no experience required!
