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 neighborhood’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.

When she founded Gulfport Yoga, certified instructor Jen wanted to create a place for people to shed stress. Of course, everyone has different ways of doing so, and that's why she and her team of teachers lead a variety of classes, suitable for practitioners of all skill levels. Beginner-friendly Slow Flow, for instance, covers traditional Vinyasa sequences at a steady pace, while Power Flow provides a challenge ideal for intermediate-level yogis.
Aside from flow sessions, the instructors also lead restorative yoga classes, which incorporate bolsters, blocks, and straps to help participants ease into deep stretches. Meditation factors into the studio's lessons, as well, transporting students into a lucid dream-like state without requiring them to stare at a ceiling fan for an hour.
