Welcome to the Old Mission Peninsula Business Directory! While Old Mission Gazette is mainly reader-supported, meaning that much of our revenue comes via donations from all of you, we do have a few advertisers, as well as this Business Directory.
People often ask why I don’t run more ads, and it’s because I don’t like to crowd the Gazette website and email newsletter with ads. And you will never see an annoying pop-up ad or video! No one wants that, including me.
So I think this Business Directory might be a way to make the Gazette more accessible to OMP businesses. There’s a link to this page at the top of every Gazette page/post on the website, as well as in the weekly email newsletter. I’ll also mention you in any Gazette stories where it’s appropriate.
Would you like your business listed here? Click here for more info on the Business Directory and Display Advertising, or email me, [email protected]. If your category is not listed here, we’ll add it!

HEALTH AND WELL-BEING
About Sally Van Vleck. Sally (Jane’s longtime yoga teacher) is a semi-retired innkeeper at the Neahtawanta Inn. She has practiced and taught Hatha Yoga for more than 40 years, and is a certified yoga teacher with the Yoga Alliance. She began practicing and studying yoga in 1977 and began teaching shortly thereafter. Her style has been influenced by many of her teachers over the years, with a combination of vinyasa (moving from pose to pose in a flow) to holding poses longer in order to release connective tissue. Sally teaches all ability levels and has introduced many guests to yoga. Sally’s teaching has an emphasis on alignment, strengthening, reducing stress and tuning into body awareness on a deeper level. She includes pranyama (breathing techniques), savasana (relaxation) and meditation in each class.
About Ted Schweitzer. Ted relocated to the Old Mission Peninsula in 2008, lured by its natural beauty and the region’s Midwestern sensibility. He obtained his California real estate license in 1988, and since that time, has been active in residential real estate as a sales person, investor and property manager. In addition, he’s had an extensive career in advertising and marketing, where he managed marketing programs and client relationships. Ted was also heavily involved in sailing, and windsurfing especially, with North American and European titles. Ted is known as the “Old Mission Specialist” in residential and land. In 2022, he was the top producer at the Real Estate One Front Street location.

In this role, she provides mentoring, guidance, instruction, direction and leadership to the team for the purpose of achieving professional development and growth with aligned results. “Service above self” is her motto.
On her connection to the Old Mission Peninsula: “It started with a dinner at Old Mission Tavern with a guy I was dating (yeah … we got married) 35 years ago! I had my bridesmaids luncheon before our wedding at Bowers Harbor Inn, and we bought our first house on Stoneybeach Pointe Road, where we lived for 25 years and raised our four children … across from Kramer’s strawberry patch! We are active members at St. Joseph Catholic Church and attend weekly, and have a great relationship with our church family, too!”
