And already the trio says they have found a warm welcome for their mix of vegetables, flowers and animals.

BRISTOL — Phoenix Rising, the yoga-therapy training program on Mountain Street in Bristol, is planning to stay in town through the year’s end and possibly beyond. The business had announced plans last winter to fly the coop and move its location to Burlington.
