We have been best friends for over a decade, affectionately calling each other "soul sisters" long before we ever imagined just how far that divine connection would take us. We met through our mutual connection to real estate. Laura has been practicing real estate since 2004, and has been a top producing Realtor with William Pitt Sotheby's International Realty since she joined the firm in 2007. Laura has always attributed her real estate success to her "secret weapon" Christy, who has been providing staging and interior decorating services to Laura's clients long before "staging" was even a well known term. Christy has been in retail for over 15 years, owning The Little House Shoppe from 2011-17. Her love of color and composition influences her design aesthetic and her stores. Together, Christy and Laura have always instinctively known that to sell a home, you need to create the right energy to draw the buyer in. Laura and Christy continue to offer full real estate and staging services. Christy and Laura have created a store that embodies positive energy and offers comprehensive merchandise which reflects that mission.
We are Purveyors of Positivity (POP) for the home, body, and soul. POP in and see for yourselves

“Know yourself, love yourself & trust yourself. It is all always practice.” - Breanna F.
Amanda’s life’s mission is to empower people and support them in discovering the tools within to live life with less pain, more confidence, and peace.
Yoga is an inquiry into the self. Every time we step on our mats we are tuning in and asking our bodies “What would you like today?” Through this moving mediation we strengthen the body, still the mind, and learn how to show ourselves kindness. Amanda truly believes Yoga is for everyone, regardless of age, body shape and size, or physical limitations. She invites students to meet the body where it is today, with honesty and gratitude. Students are encouraged to modify the Yoga poses for their bodies, rather than modifying their bodies to fit the Yoga pose. Striking balance between challenging yourself and finding ways to soften and play in your practice is the ultimate goal.
Amanda completed her 200 hour training at The School of Modern Hatha Yoga, studying under Aline Maire, and has advanced training in Yin Yoga, Trauma Informed Yoga, and science based movement. Amanda is honored to serve as an ambassador for Accessible Yoga as well as The Yoga and Body Image Coalition; two organizations committed to making Yoga available to all.
