Roll out your yoga mats.

Divine Center of Yoga will be opening on the Decatur Square at the beginning of July.

The studio is at 103 W. Main St., the former location of A Ray of Flowers.

Owner Jana Holland said she’s still working on the schedule, but there will be morning and evening classes available.

“Most of our teachers are from the Decatur area,” she said. “We have a few from Fort Worth, but it will be nice to showcase local talent and give them a place where they can teach their classes.”

Holland said she’s excited about coming to Decatur. A native of Wichita Falls, she spent the better part of every summer when she was a kid at the Bridgeport Methodist Camp and Conference Center on Lake Bridgeport.

“It’s almost like coming home,” she said. “Kristin, who owns Hey Sugar, is a friend of mine and told me the Square was booming. I thought, ‘I’d love to be part of that.’ Once we came and looked around, we fell in love with it.”

Divine Center of Yoga is based in Southlake.

“We’ll have classes that range from beginner to advanced practitioner,” she said. “We have classes for everybody. We think it’s important to have that accessibility for each person, even if they’ve never done yoga.”

BIG THINGS IN BRIDGEPORT

Within the last month, seven buildings on Halsell Street in Bridgeport have been put under contract, according to interim EDC Director Leah Clark. She couldn’t yet talk about the plans for those buildings, but it sounds like things are hopping.

“In November, we had nine vacant buildings and of those, five needed complete remodels and four of them were ready to move in right away,” she said. “Of those five that needed remodels, at least two of them are under contract.”

Clark also reported T Top Manufacturing is expanding.

“If they’re not doubling, they’re almost doubling in size,” she said.

She also noted Bridgeport Equipment Services moved from a building it was leasing on Texas 114 to a building they purchased on U.S. 380.

“Because they were increasing the size of the facility, they’ll also be increasing the number of employees,” she said. “T Top will also be increasing the number of employees.”

ODDS AND ENDS

  • The Legend Bank building on Farm Road 51 South has re-opened following a remodel.

THERE’S AN APP FOR THAT

I have a Chick-fil-A app on my phone that offers discounts and other perks for regular customers.

You know how often it’s used?

Never.
