2019 Guide to Minneapolis Yoga: Where Do I Start?!
[ FREE ] Community Classes
There are many free yoga classes offered at recreation centers around Minneapolis. This tends to be a great option if you're looking for general mixed level classes with an element of community without spending a dime.
Check out this fantastic list of Free or Donation Based Yoga Offerings in the Twin Cities (A huge thank you to Peaceful Mind Yoga for putting it together). I have four free offerings each week:
>> Mondays 6pm Community Yoga with Mikky (ONLINE)
>> Wednesdays 6pm Community Yoga with Mikky (ONLINE)
>> Saturdays 2pm Community Yoga with Mikky (ONLINE)
[ $-$$ ] Minneapolis Yoga Studios
With the growing popularity of yoga, self-care, and holistic wellness, there are many yoga and wellness studios in the Minneapolis, St. Paul area. Classes typically range between $15-25 per drop in but many also offer sliding scale rates if that rate is not accessible.
I'm a fan of trying out studios' new student deals to test out a handful of studios before committing to a full membership or package. ClassPass is essentially a flexible membership which includes a wide variety of yoga, fitness, rowing, and dance classes from around the entire area! The downside is that you normally can't go to the same studio more than a time or two each billing cycle.
Here are a few of my favorite yoga studios, in no particular order:
Svasti Yoga (community feel, Ayurvedic services on-site and regular kirtans)
Radiant Life Yoga (if you like a more vigorous vinyasa style)
Yess Yoga (beautiful space with tons of plants and intentional energy)
Open Minds Fusion Studio (if you're a night owl, be sure to check out DARK YOGA Tuesdays-Fridays at 9pm)
Sacred Space Yoga + Meditation (did someone say Astrology? Crystals? Reiki? Chill yoga in a lovely space with awesome people? Be sure to check out their endless stream of interesting specialty offerings, trainings, and workshops!)
Sattva (I recently took a SomaYoga class here and really enjoyed it!)
[ $$+ ] Private / In-Home Yoga
There are so many reasons to love the luxury of private yoga. Here are a few favorite perks:
One on one attention and real-time feedback
Customized sessions to the client's needs and wants
Hands-on assists (always optional and discussed in advance)
No more worrying about driving, parking, or getting to class on time
Private sessions are done in the comfort and privacy of your own home or office and tailored specifically to you. Check out my Private Yoga FAQs for more information.
If you or someone you know might benefit from private yoga, book a 15 minute introductory call to discuss your needs and availability.
