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.”


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. In the spring of 2017 she completed her additional 300 Hour Yoga Alliance certified program in Tahnā Yoga at The Yoga Underground in Provo, Utah.

Nic is a former professional 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. His experience lends to over 1500 hours of teaching classes and leading workshops and teacher trainings.


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.


We are proud to announce that we are one of the only studios certified to offer continuing education for existing Yoga instructors and Yoga schools through our YACEP training modules.  Please refer to our Mindpose Training tab for details.

All of our yoga teachers are fully certified with YOGA ALLIANCE in one of the following, 200/ 500/E200/E500 hour certification.

Class Descriptions

*Please arrive before the class start time, we lock our doors so that you may submerse yourself  in the full Mat Yoga/Mindpose Experience.

This is our warmest class. ROOT is an Iyengar hatha based class with a set sequence of postures that are held static for longer periods of time. This works to increase range of motion and balance, while strengthening and toning the muscles.  Room is approximately 98 degrees with 45% humidity.

FLOW is a vinyasa style class, a seamless dynamic moving class composed of standing poses, balancing series, occasional inversions, and seated and supine postures, all seamlessly sequenced together to make you sweat. No two FLOW classes are identical- the sequence is ever changing and varies by instructor. The progression of breath to movement increases cardiovascular strength, and endurance; all the while challenging your muscles and increasing range of motion and flexibility.

MEDITATE is a partially guided meditation that will provide you with the space and energy to calm the mind, relax the body, or just enjoy the peace.

The perfect balance of strength and flexibility SCULPT classes blend yoga postures with added hand weights of the yogi’s choice (1-15lbs) for exercises, and intermittent cardio blasts. Most major muscle groups will be worked throughout the class. If you like high intensity workouts you will love this sequence set to lively and upbeat music!

RENEW is a restorative yoga class great for anyone looking to add flexibility and joint mobility. Get cozy with props in each pose in this wonderfully relaxing class

DEEP is a yin yoga style practice. DEEP is a great addition to any fitness regiment. This class has amazing benefits for relaxation and is primarily focused on deeply stretching into the connective tissue and breath work. Most postures are done on the floor or lying down, and are held for 3-6 minutes with periods of  Tibetan singing bowl, sound therapy meditation to soothe and relax the mind.

Come enjoy a yoga fit based power sequence sure to make you sweat.  POWER yoga is quicker paced than Vinyasa with added strength training & muscle toning components. Room temperature is approximately 95 degree and 40% humid.

SLOW is a slow moving based Hatha/Vinyasa series, with a combination of standing poses, balancing series, and seated and supine postures, all seamlessly sequenced together. Longer, static posture holds, slower transitions from posture to posture, increase muscle strength and make you sweat, all while focusing on calming the mind and body and increasing flexibility in the joints and muscles.

FUSE consists of 30 minutes of a power flow style sequence, 5-7 minutes of arm balance/inversion prep, and 20 minutes of flexibility and unwinding. 60 minutes of pure harmony.

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 FLIGHT is for you!! ***Offered seasonally, please check the current schedule for up to date class offerings.
