Break out cow and cat pose and downward-facing dog at the Minnesota Zoo! Practice your best animal poses, stretch, and relax, all with a certified yoga instructor in the heart of the Zoo. Expand your wellness practice or your workout routine, or just try something different on a girls’ night out or a family outing! These programs can be modified for total beginners and advanced practitioners alike, with plenty of options for different ages and abilities.

Celebrating a birthday, an engagement or wedding, a reunion of friends? Looking for a unique way to unwind as you kick off a weekend, or warm up in the winter? Private, one-hour yoga classes for a small group start at $180 for up to ten people. Work with us to find a date that works for you and our yoga instructor, and let us know what you’re looking for in a class. We’ll personalize the class to the age of the students (kids welcome) and can even incorporate some of your favorite songs into the playlist.

During the summer, classes will take place outdoors on the Zoo grounds; in the colder months, we’ll be in front of a blazing fire in the Minnesota Lodge. Private group classes are offered from 8-9 am year-round, from 4-5 pm October-April, and from 6-7 pm May-September.

If you’re interested in booking a Yoga at the Zoo class for your group, or would be interested in future public events involving yoga, please email liz.e.dengate@state.mn.us.
