“The logo of the Phoenix is a symbol of transformation; emerging a stronger version of yourself by embracing physical, mental & emotional trials in a positive, healthy way. Learning to be ‘comfortably uncomfortable’ is what yoga is all about. Manifesting this transformation through support and results is what UY&W is all about.”
Utah Yoga & Wellness was created by Elise Jones in 2015, as a venue to unite local yoga and wellness communities through connection, in a fun lighthearted way. Creating “Unity in Community,” what began as promoting local wellness events & products for a healthier, happier community, has now grown into a family operated Studio/Wellness/Training center, healing retreats and community Festival in the beautiful mountain village of Midway, Utah.
Elise envisioned a place like Cheers, “where everybody knows your name,” without studio intimidation. A space for physical & emotional healing, and to utilize her education in Yoga Therapy locally, along side other wellness therapists and professionals.
Without seeking it out, the opportunity came to her. After weeks of contemplation, she decided to create this welcoming healing space, only to see everything and everyone she needed contact her & fall into her lap within 2 days – even classes she hadn’t anticipated. Everything just happened without trying; bringing the highest caliber of local talent together, creating the utmost professional yet friendly, non-intimidating atmosphere she desired. Obviously this was meant to be.
Striving to strengthen ‘Unity in Community’ in a town based upon this principal, Elise believes in the culmination of camaraderie, dedication, and a little laughter to achieve positive results and overall wellbeing. Keeping it real and more personal, with familiar local talent, even creating the class schedule based on community input, brings value to the details you don’t always find in “big box” type studios.
We hear on a weekly basis how comfortable and different it feels here. To feel truly welcomed as you are, creating and noticing positive transformation. If you’re looking to find a fun and relaxing place to create positive changes through health and wellness (or a place to sit with a good book, cold-pressed juice or tea) no matter what your age or ability, come relax, sweat, move, heal, breathe, laugh and build friendships with us; a sincere community & family Tribe, where it’s not just business, it’s personal.
