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.

At V12 Yoga, inner peace and physical health come with a view. Housed in the historical Liberty Bank building at the downtown farmer's market, V12 offers up stunning vistas of the Dallas skyline to those who stretch within its welcoming walls. Classes, meanwhile, focus on several different yoga styles, in order to make practice accessible to students of all levels. Light Work, for example, is exactly what it sounds like: a gentle practice that focuses on posture, alignment, and breath, perfect for the beginner yogi. High Power Energy Flow yoga, on the other hand, challenges experienced yogis with advanced poses, arm balances, and inversions, all performed within a heated room. The studio even offers a class for exercisers who are less interested in yoga and more concerned with a fast-paced session geared toward weight loss. Power Up workouts follow a Rock Star Fitness Camp format, which blends high-intensity cardio with resistance work and stability exercises performed in a mosh pit.
