Centered City Yoga, The Original Power Yoga Studio in Utah
The original Salt Lake power yoga studio in Utah, is based in a beautiful building in the popular 9th & 9th district in Salt Lake City. The studio was founded by D’ana Baptiste in 2003 as a Baptiste Power Yoga studio, created from the foundation of the yoga studios D’ana, and her ex-husband Baron Baptiste had originally created together. This is the first and only Baptiste Method power yoga studio in Utah, and continues to this day to be considered the best yoga studio, with the highest trained quality yoga teachers in Salt Lake City, Utah, and beyond.
As with everything intentional, Centered City Yoga expanded over the years to open space for all students of yoga, from myriad walks and paths of life. This meant of course offering the strong and powerful flow yoga classes the studio has always embodied, to over 15 years after its opening, continuing loving and blessing students with expansive education of yoga in meditation and pranayama, restorative, power, Ashtanga, Anusara, alignment-based, Kundalini, and more.
In January of 2017, D’ana sold Centered City Yoga to yogini, Rachel Cieslewicz, whom D’ana trusted would carry the studio forward with honor and integrity, and strength of heart and mind to deepen the roots of authentic yoga in Salt Lake City.
D’ana had already divested InBody Yoga Academy to Aron Stein which created the opportunity for Rachel to continue her Advanced Yoga Teacher Training at Centered City Yoga. Rachel has her Yoga Therapy Certification which she uses with many one-on-one clients for healing.
Rachel has dedicated herself to growing the studio with a full spectrum of light energy of compassion, peace and integrity, to shine fully the heart of yoga. Rachel’s mission with Centered City Yoga is to guide all students of yoga, even beyond the studio, to understand and embody the delicate, yet powerful practice of weaving yoga, and its teachings into each moment of life, bringing presence into all actions and circumstances.
Centered City Yoga also has a wonderful and highly regarded school of yoga for aspiring teachers, through the Yoga Soul School of yoga teacher trainings. The school specializes in helping new teachers to not only learn to expertly lead well-balanced classes, but to also bring yoga to all people.
