Find Your Balance At Universal Power Yoga

Trying a new skill for the first time can be intimidating, but Jen Palmer, the owner of Universal Power Yoga, is on a mission to make the practice of yoga accessible to everyone. With locations in Norwood, Westwood, and Wrentham, UPY offers a wide range of yoga styles and levels, catering to both beginners and experienced practitioners. Classes include vinyasa yoga, beginners yoga, power yoga, yoga sculpt, slow flow, restorative, and yin yoga, with newcomers encouraged to start at a level that feels comfortable to them.
Under Jen Palmer's health-oriented guidance and the expertise of the studio's professionals, UPY prioritizes building a welcoming community and creating a nurturing learning environment. Just like Jen herself, many individuals turn to yoga as a means of finding balance and healing. After experiencing extreme stress and suffering a knee injury from marathon training, Palmer discovered yoga and never looked back. "I finally felt peace," she shared, reflecting on her journey, "I felt centered, calm and clear. Things bothered me less, and I started to feel more connected with my body. I fell in love with life again. If you're feeling stressed or disconnected, I've been there. Yoga can help."
As instructors guide students through movements and breathing techniques, the natural process of yoga helps regulate the body, both on and off the mat. "When we stretch, strengthen, flow, and relax during our practice, we are improving our health and developing skills for real-life situations," Jen explains, highlighting the value of incorporating yoga into one's life. Combining her business background with her passion for yoga, Jen embarked on her heartfelt business venture after graduating from Bentley with a Bachelor's and MBA. Universal Power Yoga has been serving the community since 2013 and has thrived in its three locations.
In its commitment to making yoga accessible, Universal Power Yoga offers new clients the opportunity to take 6 classes for $60 to familiarize themselves with the studios. After the introductory deal, clients can choose the frequency of their attendance. Membership options include a 4-class-per-month package or an unlimited monthly membership. With a variety of classes and teachers, UPY members can enjoy diverse experiences and benefits throughout the week. "You can relax and restore one day and challenge yourself the next day," Jen envisioned when creating the class schedule.
Beyond caring for its immediate clients, Universal Power Yoga extends its business mission to giving back to the larger community whenever possible. The studio donates yoga class passes to schools and other organizations throughout the year and has been the top fundraising team at Yoga Reaches Out for several years, raising $47,725 for Boston Children's Hospital in this year alone. Building a sense of community and spreading positive energy are central to Palmer's business philosophy, and the entire team works to ensure that individuals can feel this atmosphere when they step through the studio doors.
A message from Jen Palmer:
"As we celebrate a decade of our yoga community, which began here in Norwood, we want to express our gratitude to everyone who has been part of our journey. If you haven't visited us before, come and give us a try! If it's been a while, we miss you, so reach out! And to all our dedicated and loyal community members, thank you from the bottom of our hearts! We eagerly anticipate sharing the practice of yoga with you and many more individuals in the next ten years!"
