Yess Yoga is creating space to come together in this monthly gathering where we will use movement, community, and creativity to explore ways to love your body a little move every day. Led by Curvy Yoga certified instructor, Elisabeth Pletcher, this circle helps us look look for ways to accept ourselves in this life, in this body, in this moment.
February’s gathering will focus on building a foundation for finding more compassion for ourselves. Compassion for others may come somewhat more easily for many of us, but it can prove more difficult when we reflect in on ourselves. Together we will share movement, breath work, and time in community to explore what it means to find compassion for self. In February we will also discuss what we envision this monthly gathering to encompass; what are your needs and hopes for a body positive safe and supportive space?
March 3rd, April 7th & May 5th we will build on what comes out of our February gathering to create themes for each month. You are welcome to drop into individual circles or sign up for the complete series for $100/4 workshops!
Everyone….and every body is welcome to join in, whether you are completely new to yoga or an experienced yogi.
Friday, February 9th | 7:30-9 pm | $25 (yoga & PBR)
The 2nd Annual F You-ga is happening at Yess! on Feb 9th we are creating a space for people to come together to sweat and pound out their frustrations & disappointments, to rage and vent and move. At the Super Bowl, at the current state of politics, at life….what ever reason you need to rage at the world, this is the place to let it all out! Elisabeth invites you to rage against whatever you need to release, and to let it all out in a passionate, loud, NSFW 60 minute vinyasa. This ain’t your mama’s yoga.
$25 gets you in and a 16 oz PBR, part of the proceeds from the event will go to Pro-Choice Resources abortion assistance fund and reproductive justice advocacy work in our community. Reserve your spot online as space is limited!

Life is a daring adventure or nothing (Helen Keller) – the essence of Sagittarius. She who engages with Life as an unquenchable Quest, seeking new and diverse experience, endless expansion of her consciousness and an ever-deepening understanding of what brings her meaning and truth. Let us gather together as women on this Sagittarian Moon night and cultivate the fiery expansion of our energy through dance (organic movement to music) and then sit together in sacred circle and each share our unique philosophies based on our own varied life experience: what we believe to be true and what brings us meaning in this life. Through our open-minded, openhearted sharing and respectful, wholehearted listening, we weave together a rich, colorful tapestry of inspiration…soul food for the journey.
Moon Medicine is guided by Evolutionary Astrologer, Jessa Walters. Several days before the event, you will receive an email from Jessa with more information about the evening.
Saturday, February 10th | 10:45 -11:45 am | $20 w/ pint
We are going to have a special brew made just for February! More information to come.
We would love to say studies show that a beer after yoga is good for the soul, but we know it works for us! Yess Yoga will be hosting yoga at ClockWerks Brewing in Downtown Minneapolis each month. Elisabeth and Sara have sampled the beer and it is fabulous! We are really excited to partner with another locally-focused business. Each month there will be a one hour yoga class onsite with your choice of a pint ($20). Cheers!
Saturday, February 17th | 1-3 pm | $35

Transiting Saturn has now moved into its own sign of Capricorn, where it will remain into 2020. When a planet is in its own sign, the energy is intensified. This powerful Saturnian time is about standing in full ownership of our choices, our habits, our lives and who we are becoming.
In this workshop, Jessa will give a 30-40 minute presentation on transiting Saturn in Capricorn. We will further explore this energy through guided visualization, reflection and sharing. Please bring a journal or notebook to write in (Saturn loves the grounded nature of writing things down on paper). Wear comfortable clothing that you feel at ease in. No astrological experience or knowledge necessary. This event is for those who identify as women.

You’ve probably heard that yoga is good for you, but figuring out where to start is not always easy to do. Maybe you have already practiced, but finding that place with other people like you has been a challenge. Or maybe you’ve heard of this “body positivity” thing, but aren’t sure if it includes dudes, too. This is the workshop for you. Dylan Galos, a certified Yoga for All™ teacher, will lead a yoga class specifically designed to address some of the challenges of practicing yoga in a larger male body. Through a simple, accessible, and fun practice, students will have the opportunity to practice yoga among community. Options will be available for all varieties of practitioners, from first-timers to long-time yogis. Come one, come all.
Note: This will be an affinity space, so we are asking that only men who identify as GBTQI register.

The power of music is well-known. But did you know the hidden power behind the music? It lies within the vibrations. Vibrational sound therapy has been used for eons around the world. Join Marnie Bounds and Rosa Thompson-Viera as they combine the healing powerhouses of vibration and rest in this Restorative Yoga and Live Cello Music Class. Acknowledged as the instrument closest to the human voice, the sonic vibrations of the cello offer more than a soothing lullaby. Because of its ability to reach from the warm depths of sonorities up to the highest of frequencies, the cello’s resonant chamber matches those found within the human body. Rather than playing cello music Rosa will be focusing on vibrational tones that correlate with chakra vibrations. Couple this with intentions deep total body relaxation of restorative yoga, and you can expect profound relaxation, deep healing, and a multidimensional experience that you won’t want to miss!
