It was a few years ago now that yoga made it's way into my life right after graduating from the U of U. This is when I started working at lululemon athletica with some incredible people who led me to Salt Lake Power Yoga's front steps. The first time I walked in, I knew something powerful was going to take place. I learned that true health is not only attained by strengthening the physical body, but by focusing on the mind and soul as well. Yoga was my ticket there.

In the summer of 2013 I enrolled in my first 30-day challenge, and this is when I started to feel a "shift". From there, I immersed myself even deeper by taking the 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training program and my mindset, body, and soul completely changed in a matter of a months. I learned so much about the practice, my community, and myself; that I feel humbled thinking back on my experience now.

I share and lead because of what yoga has done for me. If I could give someone even an ounce back of the shift I received from the practice, I've fulfilled something great in this world. With a full heart and an open mind, today I'm continually growing in my practice and my teaching. I honestly know I'd still be so lost without the practice in my life, and for that I'm ever so grateful. As an ever evolving student, I hold patience, focus, and love for my community as yoga continues to shape me in my journey.

I began practicing yoga on a regular basis in San Diego in the summer of 2009 and have practiced several-times-a-week ever since. My favorite time to do yoga is at 6 am before heading to work. That hour sets the stage for the rest of my day. I am calmer, stronger, less reactive, and lighter on the days I get to yoga! I moved to Utah at the end of 2012 and was thrilled to find a wonderful yoga community in Salt Lake City! I completed Baron Baptiste’s Level One Training in August of 2014. In addition, I completed a 1,000 hour yoga teacher training program through D’ana Baptiste’s InBody Academy, where I also received my certification as a yoga therapist. (Curious? Ask me for a private session!) When I head out of the studio after my 6 am practice, I am on my way to my day job at Workday!

I first got a taste of yoga when my winter guard choreographer, Sumer Addy, had thrown some fun moves in to our warm-ups. The was a light playfulness within the poses that just felt good to experience. Over the following few years I began to develop a shallow relationship with my mat. It wasn’t until after much time without a regular practice that I stumbled in to this new yoga studio called Salt Lake Power Yoga. Little did I know this place would change my life.


I found an amazing connection to the physical aspects, the quiet spirituality and complete home that was my practice. The constant detoxing, heightened awareness of my body, and invigorated feeling I had post savasana was a drug that I was addicted to. As I began to strengthen my practice I fell in love with the SLPY community. Each and every teacher was genuine in their craft of connecting with students in their studio and bringing them to a place of filled satisfaction. At the simple question of, “Have you thought about taking teacher training.” from studio owner, Jen Reuben, I began my deeper inquiry into my practice. Since then I have completed immersive trainings with Kiersten Mooney, Baron Baptiste, Paige Ellison and taken powerful workshops from Bryan Kest, Seane Corne and Salt Lake’s best.


Most recently I have been diving deep into the power of meditation and radical self-transformation through inquiry with mentor, Jessa Munion. I am dedicated to the power of connection, breath and playfulness on and off your mat. It is a blessing to have this powerful space to teach and learn from as a commUNITY.

I came to my first Baptiste style yoga class in 2011 after growing tired of my regular exercise routine and with the strong encouragement from a close friend. Through the vigorous practice, I had found the physical challenge that I was looking for and became hooked immediately. Prior to yoga, my regular exercise background mainly consisted of an “in your face” CrossFit style daily workout along with a grueling and time-consuming high impact cardio regimen. I was essentially wearing myself out. With my yoga practice I have learned to listen to my body as much as my heart and my heart as much as my head, and to not take myself too seriously when I’m on (and off) my mat. I have found peace and quiet in my mind, a place away from all the chatter…something I had never been able to find before. I see all of the positive changes slowly taking place in my life and I just cannot stop myself from spreading the word and sharing it with everyone.

Approaching instruction with a deep spiritual reverence for the sacredness of yoga coupled with a joyous playful sense of humor, my classes offer a safe, nurturing and challenging environment for students to come and explore their mental and physical boundaries.

I completed my 200 hour teacher training with SLPY in November, 2013 and am so excited to be a part of the SLPY instructor staff. I feel extremely grateful to the entire SLPY team for giving a part of themselves in every class and for creating such a supportive and loving community at our studio.

Outside of yoga, I am a registered dental hygienist. Off my mat and when I’m not telling people to floss I try to spend as much time possible outdoors with my dogs. I am blessed with a large community of amazing friends and family who keep my cup full. I’m also a huge fan of live music and a sucker for small venues.

Keep doing yoga. Get out of your own way. Enjoy life. Smile.

Breathe. I’ll see you on your mat!

I was first introduced to yoga at the recommendation of a coach who thought it might help with balance, flexibility, and body awareness to support my training as a Division I collegiate swimmer. I hated it, but still found myself in a sweaty room once a week, struggling through 75 minutes of total torture - an endeavor that lasted about 8 months. Two years later, I was back on the mat as part of 30-day inpatient eating disorder treatment program. It was then that I saw for the first time how impactful and empowering the practice could be. Through several years of committed practice, I was able to feel at home in my body for the first time in my life, and learned to take responsibility for my own health and happiness. I enrolled in my first 200-hour Teacher Training in 2011.Since my first training in Knoxville, TN I've taken Level 1 and 2 trainings with the Baptiste Institute, and worked as a production coordinator for all the Baptiste Trainings. I've also practiced under Paige Elenson, Kiersten Mooney, Phillip Clift, Bryan Kest and Seane Corne. Practicing and teaching yoga has given me tools to live in the best way possible - physically, mentally, and emotionally. I currently live, work, and play in Park City, but I am so madly in love with the community of Salt Lake Power Yoga. The people, teachers, and energy here are magnetic, and its a Tribe that I am so grateful to be a part of.

Jessa Munion


One of my greatest passions in life is creating profound yoga experiences that awaken your capacity for growth and mastery in all areas of your life.  

I am an Yoga Alliance E-RYT 500, Certified Baptiste Yoga Teacher, Licensed massage therapist, and Certified Igolu Coach....essentially, an expert in the field of human wellness and movement with a focus on positivity, possibility, and transformation. Through these modalities I have discovered how to live a healthy, happy, balanced life and I am so grateful to get to offer my students the tools to deepen their experience of being alive.  

My teaching style is about discovering your natural strength and flexibility, making challenging yoga poses accessible through simple skill building & basic body biomechanics training, and clearing out mental and emotional blocks that stop you. Expect to breath deeper, reach further, and grow at a radical pace when you take my class. I'm told I share great analogies, kick butts, and make students laugh.  When I'm not at the studio you'll find me in the mountains on my backcountry snowboard set up or my mountain bike with my husband, jeff!

I began practicing yoga in 2006 to improve my overall health and to balance and strengthen my marathon training. I was a fair weather yogi until fall 2011 when I found and fell in love with Baptiste style yoga. This was the first yoga practice I was able to connect to, physically and spiritually. Once I incorporated yoga into my regular training program I was able to qualify for the Boston Marathon which I ran and finished in 2013.

The empowering practice, community and internal growth inspired me to share the power of vinyasa yoga by teaching, which led me to complete Level One training with Baron Baptiste in August 2012 and Level Two in May 2013. I continue to cultivate my growth as a student and teacher through participating and assisting programs such as SLPY’s Yoga Teacher Training, Baptiste programs, Wanderlust, etc.

Yoga has taught me to have compassion for myself and others, courage to live my life powerfully and authentically, and the importance of connection of mind body and soul. I am excited to broaden and share my passion for the practice with my students. Outside of the studio I enjoy running, cycling, hiking and cooking.

My journey into yoga is a bit different than most. I took my first heated Baptiste class at Amazing Yoga in 2008. I couldn't touch my toes or balance on one foot, and the constant sweating was disgusting to me. I was initially drawn to this style because I wanted a yogi body (who can blame me?), and had a friend who was completely obsessed with Lululemon and the practice. I struggled into the studio on a semi regular basis (2-3 times a month) for the next 18 months until completing a 30 day challenge that consisted of 30 consecutive days of yoga, no excuses. Fast forward four years later, and I truly cannot imagine my life without a daily practice. I can touch my toes now, still struggle with balance, haven't quite achieved a yogi body and have never been happier. This style of yoga is the first thing in my life that hasn't been a "passing fitness phase", and I have experienced a life changing transformation by incorporating the methodology into my daily life. I am proof that you do not have to be flexible or coordinated to love yoga, this is why it is an on-going practice. I love teaching and having fun in the studio with my students. I truly believe that how you show up on your mat mirrors how you show up in life and I am so excited to build a community in Salt Lake City!

In February 2011, I went through my first teacher training with Sean and Karen Conley at Amazing Yoga in Pittsburgh. I have attended workshops with Bryan Kest, Simon Park and Natasha Rizopoulos. We moved back to Salt Lake in August 2011, and I was devastated to find out that the closest Baptiste style studio was in Jeremy Ranch. I started teaching at Tadasana, and quickly fell in love with the community and the studio, but couldn't continue the 40 minute commute to practice and teach. In February 2012, I attended Level 1 Teacher Training with Baron Baptiste and I cannot wait to share this transformative yoga with the amazing people of Salt Lake! When not in the studio, you can find me chasing after our two ill-mannered dogs and hanging with my wonderful husband, Brian.
