Yoga Jo's Studio in North Ogden

I attended one of Jo's classes last week and loved the atmosphere. Her studio is hidden away on the top floor of a business building in North Ogden (2120 Washington Blvd). You'd never know it was there if it wasn't for the big sign in front of the complex.

Once you get up the stairs and into the space, the bells tinkle on the door and you're welcomed with a hug. Jo had never met me before, but she greeted me like an old friend.

The practice space is vibrant and warm, with prayer flags strung the length of the room. Jo's signature geckos make an appearance in the decor as well. Kids and adults alike, novices and seasoned Yogis practice together at Yoga Jo's.

The music is casual and fun. There's a mix of contemporary and more traditional tunes to get you going in your practice. Jo learns your name and isn't afraid to call you out when you need an adjustment on your posture or when she wants your opinion on what move should come next.

Jo has extended an offer for me to substitute one of her classes this week, and I hope you'll join me. Every class is FREE (but since teachers volunteer their time, even just $1 tips are encouraged) and you can rent a mat for only $1.

If you'd like to join me at Yoga Jo's, stop by on Friday at 5:45 for practice. It'll run just over an hour, and you'll feel great afterward. You can reserve your free spot by going online to Yoga Jo's website and registering.

See you Friday!
