Update on Opening

We hear ya, Sunny! Our delays in opening have been largely due to red tape with the city. As we work towards being one of the first new tenants at the re-developed Lakeridge Village, we are at the mercy of many infrastructure initiatives that need to be completed and approved prior to us finishing out our space.

We are now down to just two things we need to be completed to open our doors.

  1. City of Dallas to approve the sprinkler system so we can patch our ceiling
  2. AT&T to install master lines throughout the center (currently scheduled for next week).

As a result, we are going to add a cushion of time to secure our Certificate of Occupancy, and plan on starting classes on Monday, April 29.

We will send out our April Newsletter confirming this date once we have this final step – the Certificate of Occupancy in hand.


Yo-Mosa at GoodFriend - Last Saturday of the month!

Monthly Yo-Mosa @ Goodfriend

(It’s a thing now.)

The last Saturday of every month at 10 am – power yoga class and a free mimosa! Stay after for good friends, food and beer!

Next Class – March 30, 2019 > Register Now!


Offsite Yoga

Yoga at the office? Yes, please.

Offsite Yoga

We have a team of teachers who are already spreading yoga to companies and organizations. There are numerous studies proving the benefits of yoga at work, including lower stress, less back pain, more camaraderie, and a reduction in absenteeism.

We have looked into this market and created competitive pricing with amazing teachers – please talk to your company and let us bring some serenity to your workspace – more information here.

Trey and I have been enjoying museums and art galleries together for 30 years and couldn’t be more excited about the “A” in YAM. Our Art Gallery will be inside the yoga studio allowing yoga students to enjoy beautiful local art while practicing. We will have one “Featured Artist” occupying one studio wall, and several “Highlighted Artists” on the opposite wall, all will be available for sale.

Our first Featured Artist is Tanner Lawley, who holds a dear place in our heart. We purchased one of our first pieces from Tanner’s studio on Valentines Day in 2016. And last year on Valentine’s Day, we were able to meet him in-person. During this meeting, he introduced us to the book “Power vs Force” which has been a very meaningful book for both of us.

To submit your artwork for consideration, please email 3 images of your work, including dimensions and medium to jen@yoga-art-music.com.

Music

We are getting ready to move our piano into our studio space! We plan on having regular music events such as live music yoga flow classes, and BYOB weekend concerts.

We will likely kick-off this part of our YAM vision once the Lakeridge redevelopment project is near completion (May/June).

We were really hoping to open our doors in February, but we definitely need parking spots! The great news is that we just got plumbing and electricity, and things are already moving quick – bathroom fixtures and floors are about to be installed. The wild card is we need to get our certificate of occupancy from the City of Dallas.

Classes to start on Monday, 4/29, pending certificate of occupancy.

The Lakeridge shopping center in Northeast Dallas is getting a major makeover.

The Lake Highlands center, which was built in the 1960s, is surrounded by thriving neighborhoods that have lacked nearby restaurant and retail options.

A $26 million renovation of the more than 100,000-square-foot retail project at Audelia Road and Walnut Hill Lane should be finished by this summer.

The city of Dallas is kicking in more than $4 million in economic incentives to overhaul the dated buildings.

“The city viewed this as a potentially transformative project, and we certainly agree,” said Daniel Fuller of Shop Cos., which is leading the redevelopment. “The center was so dilapidated that the neighbors are excited to see something happening.”

Shop Cos. and partner North American Development Group began working two years ago to restore Lakeridge.

The retail buildings were previously owned by an out-of-town investor and were covered with gray paint and faux metal roofs from the 1970s.

“We stripped away the old mansard roof and have taken the buildings back to a cleaner, mid-century design,” Fuller said. “We are installing a new heavy-gage steel canopy with a warm wood soffit under it and steel strapping — details you wouldn’t normally see in a neighborhood shopping center.”

Parts of the parking lot will be paved with decomposed granite, which is softer gravel.

And a green pocket park with children’s play areas is being built in what was previously a sea of concrete.

“We are really proud of the park feature in the middle,” Fuller said. “It will be a gathering spot for the neighborhood.”

Lakeridge Redev YAM in Dallas News

Some of the new tenants on the way include Vector Brewing, which will have more than 8,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor space.

“We’ve created a number of oversized patios for dining,” Fuller said.

Taco Joint restaurant and the Store in Lake Highlands — a longtime neighborhood gift and clothing merchant — have signed leases, too.

“The idea is this will be merchandised predominately with local, East Dallas-based tenants,” Fuller said. “The neighborhood that supports this center really wants that local offering.”

The area around Lakeridge is gentrifying, with more than 65,000 households within three miles of the center with an average income of more than $78,000.

“As good as the demographics are, they are getting better by the day,” Fuller said. “This has been a terribly underserved area of town for retail.

“We hear people are tired of having to leave their neighborhood,” he said. “The tenant interest has been huge.”

One of the newest tenants is RM 12:20 Bistro, an eatery that opened last month.

Owner Erin Willis said the response so far has been good, even with the ongoing construction.

“We are getting a good mix of neighborhood people but we’re also getting a lot of people from Lakewood and Preston Hollow,” Willis said. “The neighborhood has been super supportive.”

Other tenants in the works at Lakeridge include a yoga studio, a coffee shop, a children’s barber and a wine bar.
A. Gruppo Architects and TGB Partners designed the renovation.

The Lake Highlands center is one of two northeast Dallas redevelopments Shop Cos. is working on. The retail real estate firm is also overseeing renovations to the landmark Casa View Village shopping center on Gus Thomasson Road.

“We would like to do more in East Dallas,” Fuller said. “There is a real energy here.”

The Lakeridge Redevelopment is coming together! Check out these big updates as we get closer to opening.

Open Date and Lakeridge Redevelopment

We are working on the build-out and are counting on getting doors open before March! This open date does rely upon the city and the redevelopment progress (plumbing and parking). Although the Center certainly doesn’t look great yet… it is already popping! Congratulations to RM 12:20 Bistro, our neighbor and delicious French restaurant who is getting rave reviews, it is always buzzing with people and has added a super hip vibe to our new Lakeridge Village home.


YAM Pop Up Events

Community Outreach Continues

We have been providing outreach classes to the local schools and fire department, we love making these new friends and helping add to this beautiful community. We had our first pop-up with our local wine expert, Thierry at Le Caveau Vinotheque, and have our eye on a couple more local pop-ups before we open. We will also be partnering with CrossFit Lake Highlands to provide a free yoga class February 6 at 4pm.

State Fair Records

Art & Music

We are starting to identify our local artists to be shown in our studio and will likely have our first BYOB music event when the center is looking solid and more tenants are in (Taco Joint, Vector Brewing). That said, you can support local music now, go see a show! And be sure to follow our family member State Fair Records on instagram, they have a ton of amazing talent.

 


Meditation & Space RentalMeditation & Space Rental

We have solidified our family’s Transcendental Meditation Teacher, Linda Lasseter, to teach out of our space a few times per year once we get settled, we will get a date on the calendar for our first session soon. In addition, we plan on having other mindfulness  classes, as well as a runners workshop, and other positive events provided by, and to benefit, our community.

Lastly, we have selected a 98 inch 4K TV screen for the studio, this will allow our neighbors to use the space for watching parties, business meetings and other fun events.
