Alisha Branham, known as Lou Yoga N Flo, is the owner of the new yoga studio here in Hamilton, MO. Alisha has been working hard the past few months to renovate her building from the winery and antique shop it once was into a place where one can come to live a healthier lifestyle. She calls it Studio Inertia, after Newton’s law of motion with the intention of sending the message to “always keep your body in motion.”
Alisha started practicing yoga in 2016 and fell in love with the art of it. After hours of training, she soon became a registered yoga instructor.
“After cheerleading and gymnastics, yoga was something that just came naturally to me.”
Luckily for us, Alisha chose Hamilton, MO to open up shop!
Take a peek into the studio…
Once at the studio, we entered into a freshly painted, cool blue room that wrapped a spacious and comforting welcome area. Alisha kindly offers tea to her guests and her pleasant personality makes it easy to feel relaxed.
Walk through the hall to find where the classes and private lessons are held. The studio is the perfect environment to get reacquainted with one’s body. Its space, lighting, music, and decor have a relaxing and motivating effect. It’s a great place to get your mind and body right.
Alisha’s goal in opening her yoga studio is to get the community, especially children, to become more active. She wants everyone to know that yoga isn’t scary. A person at any level and at any age can approach yoga with ease and she is here to help you get started!

Former Kansas City entrepreneurs, Stephanie and Tim Champagne opened Joe Jumps Eatery and Smokehouse in Gallatin, MO in the fall of 2018. Luckily for us, they decided to create a sister restaurant right here in Hamilton! The Hangout by Joe Jumps recently opened in May of this year. The building has been quite the busy place ever since which is no surprise when you take a look at their amazing menu options and relaxing atmosphere.
Here’s just a few of their signature, must-try meals…
Must-try: Shrimp & Grits, Chicken and Waffles, or the Reverse Pot Pie
The Hangout is such a fitting name for the restaurant. Cozy, warm lighting and rustic wooden benches will make you feel right at home during your meal with friends or family. In the summertime, eat out on the patio for a more refreshing experience or romantic date night. The Hangout is definitely one of our new favorite hang-outs!
Not only have people been raving about the food at the hangout, but the staff as well! These friendly faces are happy to cook you a great meal or serve you anything you may need during your visit here!
“You have to get the tenderloin sandwich. My husband and I did share the tenderloin and we both brought some home . My son had a big cheeseburger… daughter-in-law and granddaughter had the chicken tenders. Everything was excellent. Our server was really friendly and kept up with refills. We all walked out full and said we will be back. 5 stars all the way.”
Mindy Loyd, local resident
As if you need another reason to stop in, The Hangout now serves peach, strawberry, and regular lemonade! Yum! Also, you can pair your meal with a fine wine or choose your favorite liquor or beer!
We love this small town of Hamilton and all that it has to offer! There’s so much history and there are so many local businesses who have so much to offer! So, we are excited to introduce a new blog series, Local Business Spotlight, where we will feature a local business and share some great information and photos to give you a better taste of what to do in Hamilton and places you might like to check out when you visit!
Tammy’s Flowers is one of several local businesses here in Hamilton, and it’s got so many characteristics and unique retail items to offer! Meet Tammy Gentry, owner and founder of Tammy’s Flowers! Tammy Started the business in August of 1994, a mere 21 years ago and it’s still going strong. Much has changed from the beginning, but the store has stayed true to it’s roots!
What started out as a small flower shop quickly grew to include more retail items! It’s now a “full service” flower shop offering plants, balloons, giftware and delivery. When customers started expressing to Tammy that they would like more of their wedding needs to be met in one place locally, she started offering tuxedo rental and wedding invitations as well. If you walk into Tammy’s Flowers you will be in awe of the beautiful home decor, soaps, local foods, candles, memory stones and of course florals to choose from! Best of all, Tammy tries to by as many locally made items as possible to put in her store!
Did I mention that there is a whole corner of the store dedicated to quilting and sewing decor?! We LOVE it!
Next time you make the trip to Hamilton, stop by Tammy’s Flowers just down the road from MSQC’s Main Shop! In the meantime, click HERE to check out their Facebook page and HERE to shop them on Etsy! 🙂
