Meet Betsy O'Brien Parrish!

Betsy is just one of our fav's here at the studio and we wanted to share her love of 229 Yoga and why she joins us every week. Barre is her favorite class, but Physique is a close second!

Why are these classes her favorite?

"I love Barre and Physique because I feel pushed to my limit every.single.time.  My muscles scream at me while engaging in these classes, but they scream in the nicest way.  What  I mean is that when I carve out the time to do a workout, I want to know I've done something.  Both of these classes leave me feeling that way.  And I love it!"

What makes 229 unique?

"At 229, you are a name, not a face.  It's like the bar (barre) in the show "Cheers", and sometimes you really do want to go where everybody knows your name and they're always glad you came. It's cheesy and super cliche, but it's true.  

"Penny is the best barre-tender there is.  Further, the instructors are always, always pushing themselves to be fresh and they look out for us -- knowing who has a back issue or who loves a particular move-- in other words, they cater to the class."

What would you want to share, or would want someone to know, who has never visited 229?

"Don't be skerred. Seriously. 229 isn't a meat market (though there are lovely cuts of meat all over the place). People here sincerely care about the health and the amazing benefits of exercise and not about what you look like or where you are on your journey of health and wellness. In other words, it's a no judgement zone with an amazing cheerleader as owner!"

Favorite Class(es):

I love barre and all of the yoga classes. 

Why is that (are those) your favorite(s)?


  The barre classes give you a full body workout. You will definitely be “tucking” and “shaking” by the end of class!  The yoga classes are structured for all levels from beginning to intermediate to advanced. This is a judge free zone!  If there is a pose or position I am not able to do, there is always a modification that I CAN do! 

What makes 229 unique?

229 Yoga is a very friendly and welcoming studio.  The instructors are amazing. They explain all the moves so that you are challenged but also safe. 

Anything else you want to share or would want someone to know who has never visited
