Dear Free Spirit Spa & Yoga Community,

 

We look forward to reopening our spa for limited services by appointment only and our shop for curb side pickup on Tuesdays and Thursdays beginning June 2nd. We have been preparing in order to best protect and care for our staff and guests as we slowly open.

 

 

Here’s what to expect at every appointment until we know more:

 

  • Operating hours and appointment schedule will be very limited  in order to allow only one guest at a time in the spa, thus avoiding unnecessary interaction with other guests.

 

  • We will call you to come inside when your service provider is available and your space has been properly sanitized.

 

  • Do not bring any large handbags, coats, hats or any belongings etc. that can’t be carried on your person.

 

  • Wear a mask upon arrival and throughout your appointment.

 

  • Sanitize your hands immediately upon arrival.

 

  • Receive a temperature check (must be below 100.3 to receive an appointment).

 

  • Answer questions relating to possible COVID-19 exposure & sign a release waiver at every appointment.

 

  • Make sure your credit card is on file for your appointment today and in the future.

 

  • Ask us to pull any products you will need.

 

 

Please watch for updates on our website, social sites and our newsletters as we continue to learn and share how we will navigate safely into the future.

We thank you for your continued patience and support throughout this process and look forward with great anticipation to welcoming you back to Free Spirit Spa & Yoga.

With gratitude,

Michelle & Suzy

The result is improved circulation, a strong body and a calm mind.

About Us

  

 Emily McLean

As a child, I loved doing gymnastics and dance as well as sports and outdoor activities.  I loved the way I felt when I was moving my body.  Later in life, I began to search for a new way to shape myself.  A friend invited me to her yoga class.  I immediately felt at home and in tune with something that must have been inside of me all along.

I have been in awe of the way yoga has gently guided me from the beginning,  I am open to the lessons that flow from my mat to my life and know that the learning never ends.  I received my training under the leadership of Erin Menut at The Avenues Yoga in Salt Lake City.  I am grateful to her and many teachers on my path, for their inspiration and encouragement.

 

 

Larissa Gaul 

Larissa was born and raised in the suburbs of Denver before attending Colorado State University and obtaining a degree in Biomedical Sciences. She moved to Philadelphia in 2012 for graduate school and then held various jobs after getting her M.S., including working in buying for Anthropologie and running PR for a boutique creative agency. She always came back to her love of fitness and has a long history of competitively swimming, playing lacrosse, and teaching horsemanship skills as a form of physical and mental therapy. She began teaching barre classes in 2014 as a side-hustle to her full-time job, loving the community it fostered and the way she felt outside the studio after class. After that, she also obtained a 200-hour Yoga Alliance teacher training certificate and is very passionate about alignment, breath work, and anatomy, as well as hands-on assists.

She taught group and private classes all the way until she relocated to Salt Lake City in June 2018 and decided to make teaching her full-time job (yay for not sitting at a desk all day!). Other than instructing yoga and barre, Larissa likes to hike, run, and cycle. In her free time, you can find her cooking and hosting dinner parties, horseback riding, and spending time with her Great Dane, Gustav.
