hour long class + a Pint of beer + charity
This is more than yoga, and more than a delicious pint of beer.
Family. Two of the three owners of the brewery (Matt Z and Jeremy) are my brother-in-laws. My sister is there most weekends practicing yoga alongside you. And while my sweet dad, Norbert, won't likely be joining us for savasana, he has made much of the kid furniture and the wooden paddles to serve you a beer flight. One of my cousins is working behind the bar..another one does the design work for Lake Monster. Matt Zanetti's dad is growing some of the hops for your beer on his farm in Wisconsin... You get it. It's a family gig around here.
Friends. I'm very grateful for all the amazing friends I've made while teaching yoga in the Twin Cities for the past eight years. Most of that time I was teaching yoga and barre at the AMAZING studio Blooma. (If you don't know it- check it out!!) About once a month I invite one of my talented and generous friends to stop by and co-teach with me. These are classes you don't want to miss! Good times, great playlists, and a few laughs are a sure thing!
Charity. Giving back is part of my yoga, and part of my heart, and my little way to help -- cuz we all need a little help sometimes. EVERY person who shows up to class is helping a cause. The charities change by the season so check out the charity page for more info about who you're helping at this time. Let's make some f'ing positive change in the world.
Frequently Asked Questions:
So, I've never really stepped foot on a yoga mat before. The one time I did was an accident. Will I be able to keep up?
Yes, yes, yes! Without a doubt, you will be just fine. This class is designed for all levels and one of the beautiful things about yoga, especially a class in a brewery, is that we don't take ourselves too seriously. It is completely up to you where you want to take your practice--there are modifications for everything! And ultimately, what better place to start than here?
I am an avid yogi and want a class that will getting me a-flowin'. What kind of vibe/style can I expect?
Happy-fun-kick-your-butt kind of vibes! I've taught yoga and barre classes for over six years and I LOVE to kick up the strength and get you working and sweating! But taking child's pose is always an option- see above! We will have some quiet, we will move and flow and get strong, we might rock out to some Michael Jackson, we will always have savasana, and I wall ALWAYS end on time. I teach a class where PJ pants are acceptable attire, you may take breaks to drink water or pee without judgement, laughing is allowed, and good music is a MUST. Above all I believe in choosing your own adventure. You know your body- kick it up when it feels right, take it down when you need to breathe.
I just found my yoga mat, but it was under my dog's food dish for a few months...can I borrow a mat from you?
I have a few rag-tag mats that are rolling around in my trunk that might be a slight improvement from the one under your dog dish - email me if you're in a tight spot : firstname.lastname@example.org.
Can I drink my beer while I am bending my body like a pretzel?
While we love nothing more than the combination of beer and pretzels, we also love the idea of keeping you safe. For (somewhat obvious) liability reasons, we give you your ticket to redeem your cold one at the beginning of class, which you can cash in once the practice is done. Or come back on another day with friends to enjoy your free beer!
it tastes better afterwards, anyway.
