Best Place to Do Yoga

Yoga Center of Minneapolis

Rocking out to Eminem is killer for the treadmill, but do you really want to listen to the angry rhymes of the trailer park maestro when you're attempting to master Bird of Paradise? When you don't want your yoga practice to resemble a Crossfit workout, there's Yoga Center of Minneapolis. With locations in St. Louis Park and Minneapolis, it provides a genuine yoga experience built on the philosophy that crafting a healthy body comes with a quiet mind. Get a good sweat on with the flow of an advanced class where breath and movement link while building core strength and flexibility. If discomfort isn't your gig, Yoga Center's Restorative Yin instruction will be. It's a series of restorative poses held for extended periods where the focus is intention, breath, and awareness. Walk into the calming blue hue of Room 2 at the St. Louis Park location and it'll take you about five seconds to realize you've come to the right place.
