Growing up in athletics and always loving a good high intensity group fitness style class, Jessica had a very common misperception that yoga was all stretching and not really a “workout”. How wrong she was. She took her first class in 2012 and has been hooked ever since. -“I literally took a class everyday for the first week- I loved it so much!”
Power yoga is one of Jessica’s favorite styles of yoga to both practice and teach, but she has since branched into others like Vinyasa, and Hatha, she holds a special place in her heart for all. She loves the mental and physical challenge and reward the practice gives to her personal goals.
Jessica completed her first yoga teaching certification in Yoga Sculpt, which inspired her to then complete the 200-Hour Registered Yoga Teaching Certificate in Vinyasa Yoga and Thai Yoga Massage through LagoCPH at Anamaya Mind and Body Resort in Costa Rica.
She hopes to bring you exciting and challenging class formats, inspire and bring the community of Saratoga Springs, Utah together with a shared interest in total body health and wellness. “Being healthy is more then just having a physically fit body- yoga helps you to be mentally and emotionally balanced as well.”

Nic is a former competative athlete who has been involved in athletics his whole life. He has been practicing yoga for 15+ years, but it wasn’t until a severe car accident in 2013 that left him with spinal cord damage that Nic became more adamant with his yoga, practicing almost 4-6 times per week.
After his injury he was told that he would need surgery to recover…looking for a holistic lifestyle approach to compliment his pain management program, Nic continues to practice regularly various styles of yoga and insists on sharing his love and passion to inspire other yogis and not-yet-yogis alike.
Nic received and completed his 200-hour Registered Yoga Teacher certificate in Vinyasa Yoga and Thai Yoga Massage through LagoCPH at Anamaya Mind and Body Resort in Costa Rica in 2015.
He brings a lot of personal experience into his classes by offering layers and modifications for varying fitness levels and for those who may have specific injuries or needs in their bodies. He has a strong focus on safety and anatomical alignments that he brings to the practice.
Nic loves arm balances and challenge poses to build strength using your body weight safely in yoga postures to increase endurance and strength training.

The perfect balance of strength and flexibility , we offer two types of Power Yoga, Power Flow, which is a cardiovascular Full Flow up tempo sequence which is by far one of the best full body workouts and Power Sculpt which blends all the above yoga postures with added hand weights of the yogi’s choice (1-12lbs) for exercises, and intermitted cardio blasts. Most major muscle groups will be worked throughout the class. If you like high intensity workouts you will love these Power class offerings set to lively and upbeat music!
A Full Flow Vinyasa style class is a combination class of standing poses, balancing series, occasional inversions, seated and supine postures, all seamlessly sequenced together to make you sweat. The increased speed from one sequence to the next works great to increase cardiovascular strength, and endurance; all the while challenging your muscles and increasing range of motion and flexibility. This is a great class if you like to try new poses as the sequences are ever changing.
We offer two types of “Hatha yoga “Posture yoga” a traditional Iyengar Hatha class with a set sequence of foundational postures and Hatha 2.0 for those who still prefer to forgo the flow but kick your practice awareness up a notch. Both Hatha sequence’s are guided in a heated 98 degree environment with 45% humidity, safely and effectively allowing the body to achieve maximum benefit from the class without dehydrating oneself. This class consists of a series of set postures to create internal body heat. These poses are great for building muscular strength, flexibility and maintaining joint health within the body. This practice pays attention to alignment as the poses are held for a longer duration and are synced to the yogi’s breath. This is a great class for those who like consistency, the poses remain the same but the levels and modifications provide constant growth opportunities for any level.
Slow Burn…this class was designed with every yogi in mind. If you are new to yoga and don’t know what style is for you, try this class as a sampling of all styles we offer (Hatha, Vinyasa, Yin and Meditation). This class will cover foundational postures and breathing techniques delivered by the instructor in a slower manner while holding each posture between three and five rounds of breath, making it a great class to start with or come back to as you practice grows.
Yin yoga focuses on stretching deeper into the connective tissue surrounding your joints in the body. This class is designed to open and release stress due to daily activities and those lacking range of motion. Yin yoga is recommended for everyone; especially those who need to relax their hips, release the low back, increase circulation or increase range of motion. Yin is a slower more relaxation-based class with many seated and lying down postures.
Looking to challenge your practice? Do you crave the time to work on or maybe perfect your arm balance or inversion? Perhaps learn how to use these fun and challenging postures by linking them seamlessly into your Vinyasa Flow practice? If this is what you want, need or crave for your practice then Freestyle Yoga is for you!! ***Offered seasonally, please check the current schedule for up to date class offerings.
