Every local community has a story, a history, and a unique personality that cannot be replicated. This is often thanks to specialized, small-scale businesses, like this one, which contribute to a neighbourhood’s distinctive character and promote a thriving ecosystem in their community. Small, independent businesses offer diverse products and services, fostering economic resilience by removing the local economy’s dependence on a single industry. When you buy local, you build local, and deepen your connection to your own community.
As a result, patronizing a local business like this is an act of community building. Check out their website to learn more about the local experience you can discover today.

There's one thing that's missing from most of Fly Studio's yoga classes—mats. That's because they specialize in aerial and suspension yoga, two practices that challenge yogis to pose in harnesses or aerial silks that hang from the ceiling. Mats do make an appearance in candlelight yoga and Pilates mat sessions, though students get right back off the floor for Reformer classes. Classes are held seven days a week, and occasionally include series workshops or an eighth day of classes for those flexible enough to stretch off the space-time continuum.
