What’s New at YogaFish?
Dear friends: we are in our busy season! 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!
Prenatal Yoga Sessions are ongoing! Join our resident prenatal expert, Gina Peruski and a wonderful group of mothers-to-be. Classes run from 1:30-2:30. The next session starts February 21 and runs through March 20. Practicing yoga in pregnancy helps to strengthen and stretch muscles, release tension and maintain good posture. Prenatal yoga also aids in relaxation and communing with your baby. There are many benefits in attending a prenatal yoga class during pregnancy beyond what you can receive in a general yoga class. Our prenatal yoga classes teach postures and breathing techniques that help prepare you for labor and delivery. We ask that you commit to the full series of classes to assure that you become familiar with these techniques and reap greater benefits. The program, conducted in a calm, peaceful environment will help strengthen the uterus and pelvic muscles, improve circulation, aid in digestion, exercise the spine and increase overall comfort. A safe, open community allows you to freely discuss any issues, from discomforts and concerns, to the wonderful new changes your body and baby are experiencing. One of our YogaFish mamas recently sent us the following:
“I thank God for the prenatal yoga you provided. I could rely on my breathing and mind/body/soul connection to get me through. Prenatal yoga also prepared me physically bc the baby was facing the wrong (OP/sunny side up) during pregnancy but she naturally turned on her own during delivery. The service you & Yoga Fish are offering is doing mamas and babies some good!”
Beginners are welcome. No previous yoga experience is required. Prenatal students should eat something light approximately one hour before class. Register online to reserve your space in class today!

Your method of teaching is thorough and entertaining, too.”
