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.

    bulldog online Rating: 5 out of 5 I'm fairly new to practicing yoga. I love that I can access this from my home so I can get a nice 25-30 minute yoga session in right before I get ready for work. It helps me feel refreshed and energized for the day. I love the different levels and intensity of the sessions, so I can choose which type of class I want to take depending on the way my body feels. I've only been a member for a week but I'm loving this so far!

    bulldog online Rating: 4 out of 5 Good quality soft material. The white is nice and bright. Washed AMAZING! Had two big black stains and was able to get them out and my tank still looks new and white! Tank is a little boxy fitting but super cute with a side knot or back knot! The saying is a perfect reminder of how strong you are physically and mentally no matter where you are in your Bulldog journey! Excited to add to my new collection!!!

    bulldog online Rating: 5 out of 5 Loved Tessa's online Invigorate. The online classes are just as great as the in studio :) Would highly recommend to anyone who doesn't have access to the studio or wants to Bulldog from home!

    bulldog online Rating: 5 out of 5 I took a class last week. It was creative, fun and set to great music. I don't particularly love practicing at home, preferring my studio. This has been a welcome addition to my routine. It changed my mind about streaming class.

    bulldog online Rating: 5 out of 5 No matter your level of yoga or fitness this IS for you!!! I love how it fits my most busy days and laid back! I can do it anywhere! Also I love how you feel stronger after only a short period of doing bulldog and also how it still challenges you months later! There is nothing like it! Love it!!
