Dear YogaFish friends: our classes are fuller than ever this time of year, which is wonderful- but we need your help! If you are visiting the studio, please help us to be good neighbors by NOT parking in front of our neighbors’ businesses. The two spots in front of our studio or any of the spots away from the buildings are available for use. In order to be sure that we will have space for you in class, please reserve your spot online (and cancel if you can’t make it!) for classes you wish to attend. We cannot guarantee that we will have space if you choose to drop in.
Schedule Change and New Class: Our Saturday morning 8 am class format has changed from Hot with Laura to Vinyasa with Kim Cook. We’re also pleased to announce a BRAND NEW class on Sunday mornings at 8 am- Yin/Restorative with Kim! A luxurious class to restore the spirit and open the body. Dim lighting, relaxing music, and the support of props such as bolsters, blocks, and blankets make this a favorite practice for many students. Treat yourself to an quiet experience that feels as good as it is good for you.

Breath In Motion: The Gross(set) Anatomy of the Diaphragm: Saturday April 25, 1-3 PM. What do you think of when you think of breathing? The lungs? The diaphragm? The FOOT?!? Join YogaFish’s own Sue Wattenbarger, LPN, RYT-500, for anafternoon delving into the heart of your breath. We’ll explore anatomy, the effects of the breath on the body, and how you can integrate this knowledge and put it into motion. This workshop will include a lecture exploring the intricate anatomy and physiology of the diaphragm to deepen understanding of our body layer. Then we’ll expand on this knowledge by putting it to practical use through breathing techniques and a short asana practice, matching breath with motion. We’ll uncover the anatomy and remove blockages to discover a means to breathe more deeply and comfortably, on and off the mat.This will be a very light yoga practice with very few poses, accessible to all capabilities, followed by (of course!), a delightful guided relaxation in savasana. This informative workshop is for anyone who breathes: yoga practitioners, seasoned and new, healthcare providers, all who move! No experience required. Tuition: $30 before April 20, $35 after.

Yoga Nidra often leads to deep relaxation, assisting the body in dropping out of “fight or flight” and back into “rest and digest” state for a calmer mind and a more efficient immune system. The practice is done lying down on your yoga mat for at least one hour. Please bring anything you need to help yourself be comfortable, including a pillow and/or blanket. Tuition: $20.
