Namaste, My name is SJ- I practice and teach Ashtanga Yoga, a method dating back thousands of years that offers all the tools necessary to live a conscious, structured and yet creative life through a healthy body and mind. This method is designed to allow the true self to be revealed, experiencing life fully.
My classes are socially distanced, in a well ventilated room and are held at The Front Climbing Club. Memberships are only $89 a month and include unlimited yoga classes with Utah’s only authorized level 2 Ashtanga Yoga teachers, Sammy Brown and myself. Our facilities have premium indoor climbing and bouldering, and state of the art training equipment, showers, sauna, WiFi and a cafe. The Front is such a dope place to hang out, get fit and meet new people! You can even bring your dog! Drop in passes for the whole day are $25 and your first class is free. This place is the best kept secret in SLC for Ashtanga yoga and has a thriving yoga and climbing community- if you are new in town and looking to meet people, you will definitely find friends here.
Beginners: Mysore classes are the perfect way to start a new practice. Please know you are welcome to attend class and see if it is a good fit for you! Also feel free to speak with me after or before class time.
I am the Queen, the gatherer-up of treasures, most thoughtful, first of those who merit worship.
Thus gods have established me in many places with many homes to enter and abide in.
Through me alone all eat the food that feeds them, – each man who sees, breathes, hears the word outspoken.
They know it not, yet I reside in the essence of the Universe. Hear, one and all, the truth as I declare it.
I, verily, myself announce and utter the word that gods and men alike shall welcome.
I make the man I love exceeding mighty, make him nourished, a sage, and one who knows Brahman.
I bend the bow for Rudra [Shiva], that his arrow may strike, and slay the hater of devotion.
I rouse and order battle for the people, I created Earth and Heaven and reside as their Inner Controller.
On the world’s summit I bring forth sky the Father: my home is in the waters, in the ocean as Mother.
Thence I pervade all existing creatures, as their Inner Supreme Self, and manifest them with my body.
I created all worlds at my will, without any higher being, and permeate and dwell within them.
The eternal and infinite consciousness is I, it is my greatness dwelling in everything.
– Devi Sukta, Rigveda 10.125.3 – 10.125.8,
