A new yoga studio — Minnesota Power Yoga — has popped up in the North Loop.

The 3,000-square-foot studio is tucked above the Roe Wolfe clothing boutique at 113 Washington Ave. N.

Colin Kelley and business partner Danielle Jokinen hope to make the space the go-to yoga studio in the neighborhood. They also want it to be a destination for practitioners of the Baptiste-style of yoga — a practice that uses yoga and meditation as tools for personal transformation. As of now, the studio is the only Baptiste-inspired studio in the state.

The duo met while teaching yoga at Sigh Yoga, a studio in southwest Minneapolis that closed last December after a four-year run. Kelley and Jokinen, along with other teachers they met at Sigh, wanted to keep the momentum of that studio going and as result, the idea for the North Loop studio was born.

The Minnesota Power Yoga studio is blessed with a lot of natural light from large windows facing Washington Avenue and skylights. 

The studio offers Power Vinyasa Yoga, Yin Yoga (a restorative practice) and meditation classes. People of all levels of experience are welcome.
