TYU was founded in 2010 to further spread the vision of the late and beloved Larry Schultz, Bad Man of Ashtanga; Larry’s playful and fun-loving attitude toward yoga inspired TYU owner Brittany Andrews to open her studio with the goal to revolutionize the human hearts of Utah County, one downward dog at a time.

Brittany was raised to use her imagination; with a father who brought moon rocks home from work (his office had a rocket on the roof — as all financial planning offices do) Brittany spent her time trying to fly off the back porch, dig to China, and turn her four brothers into girls (she still doesn’t have a sister, but her brothers have grown on her. And Alex paints his nails, so there’s that.) A Colorado native, Brittany learned to love the outdoors after years of stubborn “ I HATE CAMPING ” arguments. Brittany loves flowers, plants, and outer space (in a magical way, NOT in a scientific way) and spends time reading, hiking, road biking, writing, and using her fiery personality to create adventures, make life interesting, and get into trouble. For Brittany, yoga is a lifestyle that weaves together creative, open-minded thinking, kindness, passion, strength, and love to create a tapestry of beauty woven throughout every aspect of her life — whether she’s in a handstand, stuck in traffic, or taking a nap with her puppy.
Stephanie Cirac was raised in Provo Utah, and decided she loved Happy Valley so much she would stay here forever. As a result she gained a deep love for skiing, hiking, and avoiding BYU traffic at all costs. 3 years ago she reluctantly took her first yoga class, and never looked back. Yoga has taught her to cultivate the deep connection between mind and body, and find the balance between strength and surrender. In her spare time you can find her organizing, and re-organizing her home, chasing her 2 year old, and convincing her husband to come to yoga (usually in vain). Closing remarks: Beans, rice, and a good yoga session can cure anything.
Kelli will never forget the day when one of her friends that did yoga said to her ″you should try yoga… you’ll start doing that more than running.″ She never believed it until she finally tried it. 🙂 10 years and 2 kids later (with one more on the way) she’s still going strong. Born and raised in Utah, Kelli has an appreciation for the mountains and being outside. Hiking, fly fishing, water/snow skiing, and running are just a few of her addictions outside of yoga, all of which help her keep her sanity while raising a family to love and do the same. She was taught to love hard work, and while traveling the world gained a love for other cultures, food (thats why she has to keep up with her yoga) and most of all- people. Yoga has changed her life and she believes if you’re not having fun while doing yoga, you shouldn’t be doing it!
Amber was raised in the best-kept secret of the United States: North Dakota. Growing up she was always involved in sports and staying active. As a result, eventually she tried yoga, but mostly to explore the physical benefits. Much to her surprise and delight, yoga provided mental and spiritual benefits as well. Finding that yoga has the ability to aid a person understand his/her self better and to live more in the present moment, she wanted to share this great find with others. In her free time, Amber also likes to take care of her horse, do Muay Thai, and eat candy…lots of candy.
Ruth Westergard was born in Provo but was raised in Massachusetts. She loves traveling, this is reflected but not limited to her quest to graduate college as she attended Universities in Idaho, Hawaii, and finished in Utah. She was a vivacious kid always bouncing off the walls, to release this energy she was introduced to gymnastics at a very young age and took to it like a fish in water. As the years passed she developed a deep appreciation for the human body and its extraordinary capabilities. Stumbling upon yoga she discovered something that unlocked countless doors physically but also mentally, and spiritually. Her love for yoga grows, as she teaches and more importantly, as she continues to practice and learn.
Callie was born and raised in Seattle, Washington; technically from a city called Sammmamish, but no one can pronounce that! She loves wearing her moccasin slippers, watching Gilmore Girls and eating oatmeal. She grew up dancing and thought that was where her life was headed until she decided to follow her heart in a new direction. She is now at BYU majoring in Exercise and Wellness and minoring in Contemporary Dance. She loves yoga for it’s ability to strengthen the mind, body and spirit. She is all about positive energy, and uses yoga open her heart and reenter the world with a brighter perspective.
Erika’s spirit coalesced into being on a beautiful Autumn day in Germany. She was raised between Utah and Washington but Germany still feels like home. She was taught to revere nature and spent her childhood climbing trees, walking barefoot in streams, and hiking the mountains with her dad.
All throughout high school and early years of college, she sang opera and wanted to sing in the Vienna Opera House. Then she discovered floristry and fell in love all over again with nature. She thought she would be content with opera and floristry for the rest of her life, but then she tried yoga and life just is incomplete without it. “It has helped me develop a deeper spiritual connection to the world around me and helped me immensely with body positivity.”
She loves settling down with a good Chai latte and studying her Tarot, oracle and runes. Right now her obsessions are The Great British Baking Show, gardening, and tacos.
Bay Vasquez Mehl grew up in Southern Utah in red rock country. When she’s not at the yoga studio she can be found in her natural habitat: cuddled on a couch, reading/writing a fantasy book, teacup in hand, and her cat Helevar in her lap. Her husband often accompanies her to the studio and she accompanies him to the dance floor. She loves yoga because of how it strengthened her body and released her mind. Come to any of her classes if you like bad puns and seeing some crazy curly hair.
An artist and maker in almost every sense, Joss is inspired by the mountains, simplicity, Tolkien, Snape, Bob Dylan, McGyver, folktales, Lagertha, those people who convert buses into homes, the many indigenous cultures of the world, and those striving to be their best selves. She’s a thankful Possibilitarian studying Cultural Anthropology and travels the world whenever she gets the chance. Yoga was brought into her life by means of a “Yoga at Home” DVD and a psychedelic 70’s Rock blacklight yoga class with her good friends every Thursday night in the first years of college. It changed her life. She hopes to bring yoga to people who don’t think they can do yoga, in more unconventional ways, because that’s what worked for her. Don’t be surprised if every class has a weird theme with a matching playlist, demanding you to use your imagination! In a subtle way…
Hilary Skinner Schade is a Seattle born b-u-t. She loves folding, twisting, and inverting. Catch her on a Saturday night and she’s probably sleeping. She’s a lover of self help and a believer in all things food – cooking, eating, buying, smelling. And she won’t cuss unless it’s damn or hell. Your girl Hilskinn. -written by her good friend Ryan
Russ Lee is the most talented yogi in the world, he can scratch the back of his left ear with his right little toe, (but he is far too humble to brag about it, since he has achieved enlightenment, twice.) There are rumors he sold his soul to reach his level of skill, but those are simply rumors. He gladly gave his soul away at the tender age of 14 for a pack of skittles and a metallica t-shirt. He has never regretted that decision. Russ has accomplished the goal of letting his ego go to the point that now he is better than everyone else. He strives to share his many gifts and talents with the world for the purposes of brainwashing and domination. Namaste.
Dean Judd was born and raised in Provo, Utah. He’s been doing yoga for fifteen years and still can’t touch his toes, but he has a mean handstand. Dean’s two favorite things are beer, yoga, and Mexico. He also doesn’t like writing this kind of thing and would rather be working in his yard, skiing or boating.
Holly Lambert was born and raised in Springville, Ut. Her husband, three children and extended family are her best teachers and support. She enjoys spending time with her family and friends, loves working with the youth and pretty much demands fun wherever she goes. She has a passion for helping others find their divine potential and letting go of their egos. Holly’s love for yoga started yrs ago when she discovered it’s ability to help open her mind, body and spirit to all that is good in this world, and bring to the surface her truth. She is on a mission to connect, lift others, work hard, and most importantly see the good in everyone. Come and play with me! 🙂
Christine is a California girl raised in Idaho and Wyoming surrounded by 5 siblings, a big garden and lots of pets. Her yoga journey began in 1990 with classes at her local rec center. She was looking for physical exercise, but soon realized there was so much more to the practice. The transformation and healing that took place in her body and mind were amazing to her.
Fast forward to 2010…. On her post divorce-find-herself tour, she traveled around Asia and landed on the island of Bali where acquired her 200-hour teaching certification in early 2011.
She loves being Nana to her three grandchildren, performing weddings and endlessly traveling in her 1998 Volkswagen camper van, aka “The Gypsy Van”.
“I feel very blessed have yoga in my life. I am a student and continue to learn from every person I meet. What a gift to be able to share this soul healing practice at home in Utah and wherever life and travels take me. Namaste!”
