Join us for a Yoga + Acupuncture class!

Yoga and acupuncture are a match made in the chillest of heavens. Whether you're new to acupuncture, yoga or you love them both, this is a great, affordable way to combine these two healing modalities in one evening, twice a month, at Water Bar & Public Studios in NE Minneapolis.

This 90-minute class is split up as follows: the first 60 minutes include slow-flowing yoga and deep breathing, led by one of our phenomenal yoga teachers. Then, during your final resting pose, one of the acu-babes from our clinic will lull you into a short but powerful needle nap. Practice ends with a meditation designed to send you back into the world feeling more connected and grounded.

All levels are welcome. Bring your own mat and water bottle.

Exchange is $25. You may drop in on the day of class, but a paid pre-registration is the only way to guarantee your spot.

I started attending the yoga + acupuncture classes in early 2018. It was my first experience with acupuncture and I quickly fell in love. The soothing movement followed by the “needle nap” have become a staple in my self care routine and are valuable tools in my management of neck pain and anxiety. The passion radiates off the instructors and creates a healing environment open to all. I am thankful to have this awesome resource available in my community.
