"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. Stripes represent earth's healing elements, earth, fire, wind, water. Learning to be 'comfortably uncomfortable' is what yoga (& rollerskating) is all about, as a moving meditation. Manifesting this transformation through support and results is what UY&W is all about."
I created Utah Yoga & Wellness in 2015, as an information website.
Creating 'Unity in CommUnity,' what began as promoting local wellness events & products, grew into our family operated Studio/Wellness/Training center, with 24 instructors/therapists. *Closed in 2020.
(I am actively teaching public yoga & rollerskating classes, private clients, Yoga Therapy, workshops, corporate & events & occasional Teacher Trainings. *See 'Classes' & 'Retreats' pages.)
During that time, I created Hygge & Adventure Wellness Retreats for women and couples, as unique, one-of-a-kind, fun & transformational wellness experiences, now a primary focus of UY&W. These unique retreats have become sought after, even mimicked, yet with repeating guests, they promise the most meaningful time of connection & fun you'll have all year.
UY&W Shop: My Hygge Retreats are known for pampering, so I exchanged random swag for my own personally designed products specifically for you. Now available for purchase, along with many other UY&W brand items, all of the highest quality for yoga/meditation/hygge/skate/heart. You'll LOVE it!
After being diagnosed with a severe stage of permanent Heart Failure in 2021, I became more of an advocate for positivity & creating joy.
I offer my practice, teachings & retreats to help you live a more fulfilled, healthy life, as every day is a gift. I strive to help others with CHF/CHD/Heart problems through movement & calming post-surgery breath work, having been there myself. Focusing on what you CAN do, rather than what you can't, is wellness. The reason I practice yoga & skating is because I CAN, so I share my joy with you. After all, you could wake up every day and be mad, or you could wake up every day & rollerskate.
Joy is a choice.
(I share my journey on my instagram page, @EliseJonesYoga)
I have enjoyed bringing community together, having created our annual Yoga in the Park (Summer Saturdays in Midway, over 100 people each week) and the Utah Yoga & Wellness Festival, to continue these connections after I closed my studio.
I believe in the culmination of movement, breath & laughter to achieve positive results and overall wellbeing; laughter is healing too. Keeping it real and more personal brings value to your wellness and connection to our community. Join me, I'd love to connect with you!
It's not just business, it's personal.
So much love to you,

"This was amazing. I've been doing yoga 2-3 times per week for a long time, and I've learned more in one hour of class, than in one year of classes elsewhere. Thank you, Elise, for teaching me/us to improve, safely." ~Charlie, vacationer
"Trauma is very personal, it takes a lot to open myself up to it, so thank you for all you have done to help me learn to heal, even after just one session.
I definitely want more." ~Yoga Therapy client
"I had never done yoga before, I loved your class! I was expecting it to be intimidating but I felt empowered to listen to my body. Thank you Elise!" ~Event participant

"I appreciate a yoga teacher with a sense of humor." ~Marty
"My girls love going to Brooke's class!" ~Debi

"I love that I can release, laugh, cry, and not be judged or feel embarrassed." ~ Elizabeth
