Bushel welcomes guest yoga instructor Nancy Forstbauer for one session of Prana Vinyasa yoga on August 10. Unlike some Hatha Yoga styles, Vinyasa Yoga is characterized by a focus on a dynamic connecting posture that creates a flow between the more static traditional yoga postures. Vinyasa translates as “linking” and “the system” and also implies the linking of the movement to the breath. A limited quantity of mats are available, please bring your own if you have one. All levels and ages welcome.
