    HOLIDAY 2020 | Being a Small Business During Covid-19

    HOLIDAY 2020 | Being a Small Business During Covid-19

    Something is on our mind and we want to let you in on it: 2020 is hard and has created a lot of change, but our mission and values haven't changed one bit.
    ⁠⠀
    If you head to our website, you'll read a bit about who we are and what we truly care about:⁠⠀
    ⁠⠀
    * We were founded on one very simple premise, a great store should make you feel at home.⁠⠀
    ⁠⠀
    Equal parts store, coffee shop, and community hangout, Local Fixture is a throwback to simpler times. Here you'll always feel welcome. We're a family of Whittier locals who designed and curated a store around the things we love. For us it's about encouraging community kinship and sharing our deep appreciation for fine goods.⁠⠀
    ⁠⠀
    Our mission is to provide a memorable experience for all locals, giving those who enter an opportunity to brighten's someone's day. *⁠⠀
    ⁠⠀
    And REAL TALK: This year will be different. Small Business Saturday is our biggest and most popular day of the year, and this year it will be different. We hope (and sincerely appreciate) you'll continue to shop small and support local.⁠⠀
    ⁠⠀
    With a little creativity, intentionality, and planning: supporting small businesses like us and all the other amazing places on Bright, Greenleaf, and beyond is still absolutely possible.⁠⠀
    ⁠⠀
    It may mean ordering ahead. Shopping online. Opting for local delivery. Shopping early. Shipping things to family.⁠⠀
    ⁠⠀
    We won't shift our heart or vision of why we do what we do. It may look a little different this year but we're still your same local gift shop, carrying the best fine goods in town.⁠⠀
    ⁠⠀
    Thanks for your continued support. Thank you for wearing your mask and keeping your distance at the shop. Thank you for your coffee orders, DMs, tagging us in your photos, and just honestly loving on us as a family.⁠⠀
    ⁠⠀
    As we enter into the holiday season, just know we're trying our best to serve you and still make this holiday season bright. We're proud to be in Whittier with the kindest, most incredibly supportive community. ⁠⠀
    ⁠⠀
    With love,⁠⠀
    ⁠⠀
    The Local Fixture Family

    Yoga Intro | Meet Audrey

    Yoga Intro | Meet Audrey

     

    We've got another yoga instructor introduction for you: meet Audrey! She shared with us her yoga journey and more about who she is, how she fell in love with the practice, her love for Whittier, and what to expect from a class. Read on to get to know Audrey:

     I was drawn to my first yoga class in my early 20's looking for relief from a physically demanding job.

    Suffering from tendinitis, scoliosis and joint pain, yoga didn’t come easy to my body. I kept coming back to my mat for the stress relief and healing effects of a consistent practice. 

     

     

    I owe my well being to yoga! My practice is my escape from chronic anxiety. I believe in the power of yoga so much I started to teach in Spring of 2013 completing my 200 RYT, and continuing many workshops, trainings and retreats with top teachers andmethods, including my 80 hour Prenatal Yoga Certification.

     

     

    Expect my class to be Vinyasa flow based (Sun Salutations or breathing with movement), sweaty, stretchy and hands on! Every class is sequenced to create an atmosphere of stillness in movement. Where strength, stamina and flexibility gracefully meet. My mission is to help my students find mind body connection, proper alignment, breath work through self curiosity and empowerment.

    Yoga is not just about touching your toes or breathing through difficult poses. Its what you learn about yourself in those moments on your mat.  How can you shift the conversation within yourself to a positive and kind note?This is when your practice begins! 


    When we are able to check out of our busy schedules to check in with our authentic selves. Taking those lessons of mindfulness off our mat is what yoga is all about to me!

     

     

    I was born and raised here in Uptown Whittier! I have many great stories about the Whittier earthquake to Turnbull canyon and the good ol days of riding the Whittier transit home from St Paul. 


    In my free time when I’m not hanging with my rambunctious toddler and the local mom groups. You’ll find me tending to my beloved cactus and succulents or traveling the world with my husband who has been composing and performing music back when we met in Jr High when he played guitar in a local punk band.

     

     

    Join Audrey for her next class! Sundays at 10am most weeks,

    and sometimes subbing in for other instructors during the week!

    Yoga Intro | Meet Lil' Mich

     

    Meet Michelle, also known as Lil' Mich around here. Michelle has been with the LF wellness program since Day 1! In the summer of 2018, Michelle kicked off our very first yoga class starting on Saturday mornings. A little over a year later, and we now have 5 instructors and host a yoga class EVERY day of the week. 

     

    But we love to acknowledge and celebrate milestones and beginnings. Michelle is an amazing instructor + incredibly passionate about yoga and wellness. She is a nurse by trade of 9 years, a Dottera wellness advocate, and she was born and raised in Whittier! She has the Whittier Local roots and considers it an honor to teach in her hometown.

      

    “I practice yoga because changed my life!  it has really taught me how to be better to myself, to my body, and to everyone around me. It has taught me to find a deeper meaning to life, and to connect with my self my soul my inner being my spirit."

     

     

    “I hope that I can share my passion of yoga through my class... that I can guide the class beyond a physical practice and into something deeper.  That I can help heal and inspire healing through my class, in body and spirit."

     

     

    Join Michelle for a class soon! She teaches Mondays at 9am, Wednesdays at 6:30pm, and Saturdays at 9am.
