About Us

Sun Rock Yoga’s philosophy relies on the belief that consistently practicing and learning yoga creates a foundation to realize our authentic potential. By focusing on our physical postures, we allow ourselves to connect our body to our mind and spirit–generating self-awareness, love and discovery. Sun Rock Yoga provides expert instruction and a serene environment to make those imperative connections possible.

​With multiple yoga class styles and membership options, Sun Rock Yoga is here to help you begin or strengthen your yoga journey.

Tessa Poulsen - Sun Rock Yoga

Hi my name is Tessa!
I originally started practicing yoga in college to help me in long-distance running. Then life got busy… I fell back in love with the practice during the pandemic and while I was taking a break from being a medical provider to move to Southern Utah and be more present with my kids. Yoga has helped me be a better mother and surprisingly helped me recover from some spinal nerve injuries. I became certified to teach and started teaching at Sun Rock in the summer of 2022. I appreciate the opportunity to help others use yoga in their own lives for physical, mental and spiritual healing.
