To EMPOWER you to generate connections, TAKE ACTION, and be a LEADER in your own life.
At Up Yoga, we get sweaty, messy, and vulnerable, on and off the mat. We are smart, sassy, loving, driven, badass yogis, and we always welcome everyone with open arms.
We think each and every interaction is a chance to strengthen connection. We are in this together!
We practice what we teach with the intent to always grow. "The prize is in the process" - Baron Baptiste
We SHOW UP for each other with clear communication. We hold ourselves accountable to our goals.
Our intent is to leave you in your greatness and empower you to find your truest potential.
Through our mission and core values we RISE UP to our lives and we take others with us.
About the Founders
Husband & wife team John Sinna and Lindsay Grabb opened Up Yoga in May 2017 in the Kingfield neighborhood of south Minneapolis.
Lindsay has practiced and taught Baptiste yoga for years, across the U.S. and even Singapore – a place Lindsay and John once called “home”. After twelve years in marketing and retail buying, Lindsay put aside her corporate career to focus on building a new kind of home after the couple (and now family of four) moved back to Minneapolis. The mission was simple: create a welcoming community filled with energetic individuals who empower and inspire each other to live bold and powerful lives. 2017 was the magic year of chasing and catching dreams: Lindsay immersed herself in the Baptiste community, assisting multiple programs and starting her own Birth Doula business – while enthusiastically building herself and her community and getting clear on her intentions for Up Yoga.
John designed and constructed the custom wood installations and furniture that can be prominently seen inside the newly renovated heated studio while gracefully juggling a number of other projects, including his day job scavenging for value among the great unloved in the global financial markets.
They are an unstoppable team committed to their own personal growth, along with raising their two young daughters to be curious and kind. They have built Up Yoga on the same authentic and devoted foundation that can be found in their personal home – so you can expect to be greeted with a genuine smile as soon as you walk through the doors at Up Yoga.
why up Yoga
The Baptiste Power Vinyasa style of yoga is a sequence of postures or asanas, linking breath and movement. We flow through the series in a 95 degree room to promote release of toxins and to provide fluidity and flexibility in the muscles. The practice supports you to raise your vitality and physical power, and will empower you to create accelerated results in your overall body strength and confidence.
We do all of this while having fun! Creativity lives in play. Yoga can be serious, and we don’t think it always needs to be that way. Take a look at our one minute video to get a short look inside a class.
