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.

Natural Self Yoga
As the name of their business implies, the yogis at Natural Self Yoga believe that regular yoga practice helps people get more in touch with their bodies and minds. They offer classes seven days a week, but they don't push students to attend every day. Instead, they respect the idea that each person's yoga practice is different, and that it's fine to attend daily, weekly, or monthly just so long as you "roll out your mat, stay in the present, step on it, and breathe." Because of this, Natural Self Yoga's classes can be enjoyed at every age and fitness level, allowing each person to work through the poses to the best of their ability.
