Yoga Instructors

The Yoga Space opened in 2006 as a neighborhood place to practice.  Our teachers are all nationally certified yoga instructors. Along with yoga classes, we offer seminars and complementary health modalities including mindfulness meditation and reiki.

Sirpa in Southern Utah

Sirpa in Southern Utah

Sirpa is the owner of Yoga Space. Almost two decades ago her Iyengar teacher, Elizabeth Kerwin encouraged her to branch out and try different forms of yoga. Sirpa thanks all the teachers who she has since been privileged to study under including: Ashtanga: Amy Williams, Larry Schultz and David Swensen; Anusara: Adam Ballenger, Desiree Rumbaugh, John Friend, and Sianna Sherman; Bodhi Flow Yoga: Syl Carson; and Iyengar: Elizabeth Kerwin and Ingela Abbott. Sirpa has taught since 2006 and specializes in ashtanga, as well as body alignment, sports injuries and therapeutic yoga. She encourages everyone, no matter what their age or limitations to experience the healing and strength that yoga offers.

Jenne, an original founder of Yoga Space is trained in both ashtanga and Bodi Flow yoga. Jenne has taught in Utah Valley for well over a decade, at her workplace as well as at Yoga Space. She and Sirpa practiced together over many months and the idea of opening the Yoga Space was a natural followup as friends and associates wanted to join them in the practice. Her classes are both challenging and restorative. Jenne has a peaceful, yet strong approach to her practice and her dedication shows in the hours she has spent learning more about the history and forms of yoga.

She writes: “When I was introduced to yoga as a child, I felt that the physical practice was something special. As I grew older, I first discovered how yoga could strengthen my body; I later discovered how it could bring peace to my mind. In the winter of 2015, I completed my 200-hour teacher training at 3B Yoga in Provo and began teaching at Brigham Young University shortly after. Teaching yoga is especially fulfilling to me as I try to share optimism and light through the practice. I also believe that yoga is not just beneficial to your health—it’s fun!”
