Our Annual Staff Training on January 4th focused on Antiracism led by Dr. Monea.

Let’s NOT Talk About Weight

By |2023-03-15T11:58:14-04:00March 15th, 2023|Blog|

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 [...]

By |2023-02-17T06:52:45-05:00February 17th, 2023|Blog|

🔥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 [...]

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. Finn, like all children under the age [...]

BYUV Class Highlight: Yin Yoga

By |2021-06-28T16:13:52-04:00May 24th, 2021|Blog, 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! 

By |2021-05-17T13:12:47-04:00April 29th, 2021|Blog|

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

By |2021-05-17T13:49:25-04:00April 22nd, 2021|Blog|

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

By |2021-05-03T07:12:13-04:00March 7th, 2021|Blog|

“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 [...]

Boy, do I feel like I’m being put to some kind of cosmic test. I know you know what I am talking about. At the studio we’ve been working on our growth plan and it’s been moving in the right direction. The staff here is truly dedicated to learning and helping to expand our offerings. We are literally bursting, classes are full, students are smiling. The winter was going along great, the kids, the snow, the dog, the projects, the yoga, good food, trips to the grands, lots of family, lots of friends. Really we are so fortunate. Then came [...]

Our Room

By |2021-05-03T07:12:31-04:00April 9th, 2020|Blog|

At this moment what’s on the top of my mind is how to help you create and maintain a practice away from our hot room. This is the time where getting to class is really just throwing down a mat and jumping in. From this end Julia and I have worked out the tech details and are now running 17 live virtual classes and two scheduled pre-recorded classes every week. We’re also actively adding to a library of BYUV classes that you can pull and play on your own schedule. Oh, and Julia and Sally have some super effective quick [...]
