When owner Jen Chitwood entered her first yoga class in 2002, she was amazed by the mental, physical, and emotional exertion she experienced in just a single hour. The positive benefits of yoga, including stress relief and a positive attitude adjustment, spilled into the rest of her life and relationships almost immediately, leading her to eventually realize that yoga was her life’s passion.This realization led her to study and, in time, come to own her own studio. Now, she leads a team of experienced instructors who dedicate their yogic pedagogy to students of any skill level, leading them through Vinyasa-style yoga and guiding them with individualized adjustments. They also hold prenatal yoga classes, private lessons, workshops with national teachers, and teacher trainings for those wanting to dive deeper on the yogic path. Additionally, the studio’s knowledgeable nutritionist works with individuals or groups to help them exercise good decision making and portion control when they’re lounging at home, working at the office, or vacationing at their timeshares in Candy Land.
Uptown Yoga is dedicated to creating a positive change in the world at large. Jen Chitwood cofounded One Love Dallas, a local branch of the charity Off the Mat, Into the World, which inspires conscious, sustainable activism and grassroots social change within communities around the world.

From the time she was in the second grade, Melissa Bartoszewski knew she wanted to practice the healing arts. She found that chiropractic skills allowed her to relieve people's pain and experience the satisfaction of working with hands. So, she earned her chiropractic degree from New York Chiropractic college and opened Big D Chiropractic. Her favorite part of her job remains the service she performs most often: the chiropractic adjustment. She says, "It's pretty amazing to relieve someone's acute or chronic pain with an adjustment." Some of the maladies she treats with adjustments include headaches, lower-back pain, sciatica, and whiplash injuries.
