Modo Yoga Minneapolis is one of more than 75 independent locations maintained by Moksha Yoga. Modo unites hot yoga with an unwavering fidelity to sustainable environmental and social practices. The company's eponymous classes combine therapeutic yoga with traditional yoga through 40 postures that can be modified to stretch and challenge students of all fitness and flexibility levels. Ryann and Phil Doucette co-own the Minneapolis studio, where Ryann manages, directs, and happily teaches in the footsteps of Moksha founders Ted Grand and Jessica Robertson. Ryann and Phil outfitted the studio with cork flooring for joint support and radiant heating for encouraging the release of toxins through perspiration. The 103-degree heat helps ligaments get as loose as a pirate's morals doing the worm, allowing deeper stretches. All her hard work has paid off with Modo Yoga Minneapolis being awarded Best New Studio in 2011 and Best Hot Yoga in 2012 by Minnesota Monthly.
