Let’s NOT Talk About Weight

The fitness industry has long been over saturated with diet obsessed culture.  We’ve been brainwashed from a very early age to believe that our self worth is directly related to our size. Here at The Studio we’re calling bullshit. Enough. We aren’t a ‘burn it to earn it’ studio. Our mission is to create a safe space where people are encouraged and supported to connect, heal and grow through life-changing classes taught by empowering teachers.    No shame if weight loss is one of your goals, we support all your health goals, whatever your reason for being here - we [...]

Let’s Talk About Heat!

🔥Let’s talk about HEAT baby!🔥 We HEART the heat at The Studio. In fact it’s the main attraction for many of our fabulous clients. It sets us apart from the other yoga and fitness studios in the UV and it’s also been a bit of controversy over the years. Aside from the fact that we LOVE the heat and the way it makes us feel,  there's some science behind it too! We use heat as a tool in all of our classes to increase the therapy of your experience. Heat therapy has been shown in multiple studies to [...]

💕Self Care & Self Love💕 With Valentine's Day around the corner, we want to take a minute to talk about Self Care and Self Love. Self Care includes activities that we do (or don't do!) to improve our well-being, boost our mood and reduce stress levels. Like regular car maintenance or weeding a garden, these things help us run smoothly and grow. Some examples are exercise, eating healthy foods, spending time in nature, getting enough quality sleep, mindfulness activities like meditation and journaling, and spending quality time with those you love. Self Love is a state of appreciation [...]

Making Sure We Fuel Our Bodies This month it's all about FUEL. Your body performs best when it is properly fueled. Are you showing up for class ready to go? Making sure you’re well-fueled and hydrated, particularly in the summer heat, takes some intentional effort. More sweat out means more liquids in, adding in electrolytes (LMNT is the perfect on-the-go option!), and protein (grab an Apres from the cooler!) as you can. Properly fueling, also includes rest. That’s right, rest. In order for your body to perform optimally, it needs time to recover and repair. It also means [...]

Changing Seasons; Pausing for Perspective  April 🌧 bring May 🌷, and as the seasons continue to shift we wanted to pause and check in on you. This time of year brings a lot of warmth; longer days, more sunshine (we hope!), and heat. It also represents a time of transition; many school schedules are ending or changing, and summer plans are now clearly in the front window. Although it may feel tempting to hit the gas pedal and GO, now is the perfect time to slow down and make sure you're supporting your whole self as you journey [...]

In Like a Lion, Out Like a Lamb You know the ol' saying... in like a lion, out like a lamb, and like the month of March, we're here to remind you of the importance, and necessity of finding the balance between both strength and flexibility, intensity and softness. Our classes are designed to work together as a complementary series to holistically support a healthy body, mind, and heart-- the yin and the yang. We have learned stretching alone does not make us more flexible, which is why we have introduced functional range conditioning (FRC) and Kinstretch principles [...]

November 2021 Newsletter

Giving Thanks As the seasons continue to shift, and we move into November, we’re reminded to slow down and give thanks for all that has supported, and challenged (you read that right!), us throughout this last year. We are endlessly grateful for YOU and our BYUV Community, and wouldn’t survive and thrive without your energy, perseverance, and love for yourself, and those around you. Thank you.  The research shows spending just a few moments each day practicing gratitude strengthens our resilience, our patience, and ultimately our feelings of happiness and peace of mind.

In-Studio Vaccination Requirement as of September 1

Hey there, I'd like to introduce my son, Finn to everyone that has yet to meet him at the studio. Finn is the super active little dude you may have seen blowing kisses behind the glass door, dancing in the hot room to our favorite playlists, snuggling Julia's dogs on the bean bag chairs, and handing out endless high fives. Finn is our homie with an extra chromie, he has Down syndrome. Finn is also immunocompromised due to a congenital heart defect and at high risk for becoming seriously ill from COVID-19.

BYUV Class Highlight: Yin Yoga

The style of yoga that most people are familiar with practicing is the “yang” style of yoga. Usually, these styles are a bit more up-tempo and rigorous - Vinyasa, Fusion, Flow, Ashtanga. But of course, every yang needs a yin! Yin Yoga is a more relaxing style, and it is the perfect complement to the rest of your practice.

Work ya Buns! 

What’s up with these bridges we do at the beginning of every IHP class? We use glute bridges as a way to warm up for the rest of the class. Spending the majority of the day on our caboose can wreak some serious havoc on our bodies. The backside is underused and overstretched while the front gets shorter and weaker. This leads to the position of our pelvis and spine changing and creates pain and dysfunction through the rest of the body, usually resulting in chronic back pain. Activating your glutes helps get you ready for a more effective class [...]

A Piece by Sophie Wohltjen

Did you know Sophie, yes – email Sophie, is a beautiful writer and currently working on her P.h.D? At the beginning of covid, we asked Sophie to write a piece for us relating to her work, quarantine, and yoga. Enjoy  ❤️❤️❤️❤️ As a Ph.D. student in social psychology, I’m fascinated by the different ways in which we align ourselves with one another. For example, we imitate the people we talk to, from their gestures and facial expressions down to things as tiny as their pupil dilations. And it’s good that we do this because studies have shown that by unconsciously [...]

Everyone Has a First Class

“The first time I came to BYUV in 2016, I thought I was signing up for an evening of hot yoga. Serendipitously,  this night was the night the founder of Inferno Hot Pilates, Gabby, was teaching her first ever class at BYUV and the class was free to all. At first, I was hesitant about a new workout experience but after some friendly encouragement from the staff, I decided to stay and take the class. What followed was, in short, the hardest work out I had ever done! I distinctly remember being amazed at my ability to push myself way [...]
