People holding yoga poses typically seek self-discipline and control, whereas those holding yoga posters just want Sting's autograph. Find peace while standing still with today's Groupon: for $10, you get a yoga class for two at Moksha Yoga Minneapolis (up to a $34 value).
Moksha Yoga Minneapolis’s experienced yogis twist torsos in hot yoga classes practiced in cork-floor rooms set at temperatures upward of 100 degrees. Grab a friend, relative, or flexible CPR dummy and drop in the Moshka yoga class—a cardio workout that launches the body into a journey of 40 poses in a combination of therapeutic and traditional yoga. The hot Hatha class’s non-weight-bearing poses and heat improve body pliability and stimulate muscles as the body rises and falls like a Peep in the microwave. Class times vary from 60 to 90 minutes, depending on the style, and destress minds seven days a week.
Moksha Yoga Minneapolis enhances each yoga experience with its relaxing, eco-friendly studio space. The environmentally sustainable, cushy cork floors reduce lower-back pain, and the room’s warmth emanates from radiant heating panels designed by the Environmental Protection Agency. The studio proffers changing-room showers with complimentary environmentally friendly soap, as well as filtered tap water as pure as the driven snow made from filtered rain droplets.
Modo Yoga Minneapolis
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.
