Yoga Center of Minneapolis’ team of attentive instructors brings a range of expertise and teaching styles to each studio, leading a dynamic collection of classes and workshops for yogis of all experience levels. The studio’s robust schedule takes place within citrus-hued walls, floor-to-ceiling windows, and gleaming hardwood floors, which provide a comforting atmosphere for new students and performance-anxious mats during the four-week Absolute Beginner class series. During the educational, intensive series, fledgling flexers build the foundation for their practice by mastering the basic postures, breathing techniques, and centuries-old secret yogi handshakes under the guidance of a patient mat maven.
More-experienced students can challenge their muscles and minds during a four-week workshop of two-hour classes. In aerial yoga, students perform postures in suspended, fabric slings that allow gravity to naturally deepen each pose and help participants hone hammock-wrangling skills. The back-bending workshop integrates core-strengthening moves to help pupils increase their range of motion, as well as their popularity as a lambada partner.
