The idea of doing a class outside in a park with the most incredible view sounded amazing to me… I was not able to try it out so when Stephanie and Bridget invited me to visit their studio to try a class I was so excited but also a little apprehensive..its been so long since I’ve been able to shut my brain for moment, and the idea of going to a yoga class and focus on my breath, clear my mind seemed impossible to me… Which meant I really needed it.

Five Great Reasons to #ShopLocal

Shop with a purpose. For every $100 you spend at locally owned businesses, $73 remains in the community. Those dollars help fund local wages, local taxes and other locally owned businesses, as well as donations to local non-profits. This compares to only $43 remaining in the community when you spend $100 at a non-locally owned business. Additionally, small businesses simply work harder to earn your business through product knowledge and personal customer service. Local businesses value, respect and appreciate your patronage. You can find anything you need locally and your local businesses give back more to the community.
