Spring brings fresh life to Minnesotans in many ways. After huddling indoors all winter it brings us warm weather, beautiful flowers and renewed efforts to get out, exercise, and interact with our neighbors. For the Corcoran neighborhood, it also means a breath of fresh air for our local yoga studio. April 1 brought a new owner, more instructors and classes, and fresh ideas to Imbue Yoga to help you in those efforts.
Although I’ve tried yoga in the past, I’ve never fully embraced the practice. I love the idea of it, but I sort of fear the stereotype. I think everyone has that image of who they think “does yoga”. Mary wants to break away from those ideals and bring yoga to a wider variety of people and hopes the diversity within Corcoran can help her reach more people with her vision to “Imbue (infuse) your life with wellbeing, energy and compassion.”
Mary exudes a bubbly, funky and artsy personality and is bringing fresh ideas and creativity to the studio. It started with a new name, fresh paint and has grown to include her “Plant Based Yoga”. This class will be scheduled about once a month on a Friday. It will include setting an intention of sending out good will, an energetic flow, and end with a meditation. Immediately following the class will be a Vegan potluck! You need not be vegan, you need not even come for the yoga! All proceeds from these potluck nights will go to a designated charity.
As Mary hires new instructors, more classes will be added to the schedules. Current classes range from prenatal, seated yoga – for those with limited movement or injuries, live music classes, candlelight meditations to classes for runners and bikers (those of us who run and bike know yoga can be challenging with tight hamstrings!) Mary likes to focus on beginning yoga students and will create custom, personal, private lessons for anyone uncomfortable jumping right into a class, or anyone wanting specialized instruction.
Speaking of warm spring air, Mary is currently working to bring Saturday morning yoga to the Midtown Farmers Market and pop up yoga classes are distinct possibilities.

Discounted rates are available for military, students and seniors and all pricing is located on the website or you can stop by on June 11, 3:00 pm for the official grand opening.
