Chakras and Oils: Move, Sense, Explore

Saturday, May 26th | 1- 3 pm  | $35

Join Brianna for a sense awakening experience. The sense of smell is our most primal sense, dating back to the origins of life on Earth. Oils can be used to enhance asana, pranayama, meditation, and relaxation. 


This workshop will  start out with a shirt discussion and instruction on essential oils and chakras. It will primarily be experiential.  We will use yoga, oils, breathwork and meditation techniques to cultivate a deeper connection to your energy body and intuitive self. Throughout class you will apply oils topically as well as through inhalation and ingestion. You will get the opportunity to play with crystal pendulums and gain a deeper understanding on how oils affect your energy body.


This class is purely for fun and learning. It is not designed to sell you oils. Essential oil-infused beverages will be provided. We will use oils from Veriditas by Pranarom oils which is organic and locally owned.

Body Love

As always please join in for one or for all or for some! New and experienced yogis alike. The bundle package can be shared with a friend!


On June 2nd Body Love will focus on being Enough. In a society that continually tells us we need more, have to do more or be more, we will soak in all that we are and have and do. It is enough.

Clockwerks Brewery Yoga 

Saturday, June 9th | 10:45-11:45 am  | $20

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!


Women’s Moon Medicine: Moon in Leo, Element of Fire

Saturday, June 16th | 7-9 pm  | $35

Under this Lioness Moon, we gather together as women and explore the warm, spontaneous, joyful, creative, life-giving Leo energy in our bodies, minds and hearts. We explore embodiment through free-form movement to music, with intentionally chosen songs and facilitation by Jessa, intended to connect us with our innate Leonine strength, our child-like ability to spontaneously self-express and the pure lightness of heart that can come from simply being in our bodies, moving freely.


Leo Moon Medicine supports each of us in building courage through risking the vulnerability it takes to come forward in the presence of others with our true selves and our creative expressions. The other half of the equation is then to each receive the healing attention, affirmation and praise from others in response to our individual sharing. This loop of risking self-expression and receiving healing affirmation is what Leo medicine is all about.


So, after the movement, we will gather in circle, and each of us will have the opportunity to share from our hearts. After each woman shares, we will go around the circle and each woman in the group will then offer a word or sentence of warm, positive reflection back to the woman who shared. This is a powerful practice of showing up in our authenticity and receiving healing praise and warmth from others. Moon Medicine is led by Evolutionary Astrologer, Jessa Walters.

Yin & Yoga Nidra for the Summer Solstice

Saturday, June 23rd | 10 am – 12 pm | $30

As we move into summer (warm weather, gardening, sports, road trips, outside activities) slowing down becomes essential. This day is summer’s height, midsummer, the longest day and the shortest night of the earth’s solar year. Here we celebrate the completion of the cycle that began at the winter solstice. Solstice means “standing of the sun” and we can connect to this great turning point in the earth’s yearly cycle by taking a moment to stop, be still, and look back at our own unique journey.


In Brianna’s workshop we’ll wake into the day with a soft, still, deep, and nurturing yin practice that focuses on the meridian lines associated with summer.  We’ll close out our practice with a 30 minute guided deep relaxation journey that include visualization to help us feel grounded as we forge our way into summer.
