This Is Gracie

The smushiest face of bulldog yoga.

We couldn’t call ourselves bulldog yoga (or work toward being #bulldogstrong) without an actual bulldog around to fill our cuteness quota and keep us smiling after a sweaty Invigorate class in the studio. That’s where Gracie Jane comes in. Meet our one-of-a-kind mascot!

Gracie is a one-year-old English bulldog who has been part of our family for as long as she (and we!) can remember. Since it’s Thursday, here’s a Throwback to her puppy days!


Gracie Jane is still a regular at our Villanova studio, where guests can typically find her greeting them at the front desk, sleeping under the front desk, trying to sneak into classes, or (when she’s feeling particularly feisty) stealing a yoga block and using it as a chew toy (how resourceful is that?). Obviously, she takes her job very seriously.

On her days off from the studio, Gracie likes to stay active by playing with her soft soccer ball (and chewing on it when she gets tired).

Gracie Jane is best known for sleeping with her tongue out, walking with a great butt wiggle, and having an amazing figure (yoga body, anyone?). Thanks to all of the love she gets from her bulldog community, she’s the friendliest dog you’ll find and is happy to give kisses to anyone she meets (or bark for attention if you’ve forgotten about her).

We don’t know how she does it all. She’s basically a superhero.
