Phish fan Chris Calarco has been teaching Phish Yoga classes in Portland, OR, starting with a one-off workshop in November 2010 that's turned into a weekly class, with a steady Facebook following. Chris has also conducted classes in conjunction with Phish shows at Superball in Watkins Glen, NY; Svadyaya Yoga in Lake Tahoe; Root Yoga in Denver; Balanced Yoga in New Haven, CT; Dhyana Yoga in Philadelphia, PA; and Yoga Vida in NYC, NY.
Chris will now begin splitting the proceeds from Phish Yoga between the Mockingbird Foundation and Street Yoga. "My Phish Yoga class is all about the symmetry between Phish and Yoga and how the two practices have so greatly contributed to my health and happiness." You can join Phish Yoga August 10th in NYC (615-815pm at Yoga Vida), August 18th & 19th in San Francisco (1-3pm at The Center), and September 1st and 2nd in Denver (2-3pm and 1-230 pm, respectively, at Root Yoga Center).

Phish.net is a non-commercial project run by Phish fans and for Phish fans under the auspices of the all-volunteer, non-profit Mockingbird Foundation.
This project serves to compile, preserve, and protect encyclopedic information about Phish and their music.
The Mockingbird Foundation is a non-profit organization founded by Phish fans in 1996 to generate charitable proceeds from the Phish community.
And since we're entirely volunteer – with no office, salaries, or paid staff – administrative costs are less than 2% of revenues! So far, we've distributed just about $1,500,000 to support music education for children – hundreds of grants in all 50 states, with more on the way.
