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. When you buy local, you build local, and deepen your connection to your own community.
Strengthening the community begins by supporting and visiting local businesses like this one. To learn more about this business, check out their website or simply stop by, say hello, and discover—or rediscover—all that this business has to offer.

Shakti Body Yoga
Some days a yoga student might want an energizing class where she can work up a sweat, but on others, a calming, slow-paced class is just what the doctor ordered. Shakti Body Yoga offers both. Students sweat through cardio-enhancing Vinyasa yoga classes, synching breath to movement as they flow from one posture to the next. Alternatively, in gentle restorative classes, folks combine slow-paced movements and long-held postures with breathing techniques to quiet the mind.
Because Shakti Body Yoga believes yoga should be accessible to all, the studio also offers weekly donation-based community yoga classes that range from beginner to advanced. Prenatal yoga classes open the floor for moms-to-be to improve mind, body, and spirit, while also giving babies a head-start on learning yoga moves so they won't feel self-conscious in future Mommy and Me classes.
