Who can attend: This event is intended for any women in our community interested in improving their health, learning more about the art of Yoga and gaining a better understanding of how gratitude and generosity make a difference at MVHS.
What to bring with you:
All participants should bring a yoga mat (ideally a thick mat or 2 thin mats) and water. Wear comfortable clothing and if the temps are cool, warmer, loose fitting clothing. There will be refreshments provided after the session.
There is no cost to attend this Yoga for Women event. We invite participants to bring a new children’s book (or more), which will help support the families in our MVHS Centering Pregnancy Program.
Join local certified Yoga Alliance teacher Christina Buschmann, owner of Yoga Hot Spot, as she helps you discover the tools and develop the habits you’ll need to help improve your daily patterns and ultimately, your life. The classes she teaches are based on the belief that mental and physical health are interrelated, and should be conditioned together. This session will attempt to coordinate breathing and physical movement, improve focus and concentration, and help participants regain control of their body and mind.

About the instructor: Christina received her Masters in teaching physical education from Syracuse University and has a BA from SUNY Brockport. She is a certified Yoga Alliance teacher and has been teaching yoga since 1985.

“Striving to be healthy in mind, body and spirit has resonated through me for as long as I can remember. Being able to help others of all ages and fitness abilities to achieve their fitness goals has been my passion. And what really caught my attention was Hatha Yoga, it was a self healing practice in which a person with any body type or fitness level could practice. That hit home with me. I strive to guide all who cross my path to find a way to be happy and healthy through a self-healing practice. My mantra is PMA - Positive Mental Attitude. I have been blessed in so many ways. I look forward to sharing my PMA with you!” – Christina Buschmann
