Life Time Fitness opens Uptown yoga and Pilates boutique

Life Time Fitness has unveiled its first LifePower Yoga studio in the state in Uptown.

LifePower Uptown, 2901 Hennepin Ave., has five studios for yoga and Pilates classes, a LifeSpa, dressing rooms and lounging areas. There will be a grand opening party for members on Thursday. It opens for the general public on Saturday with free classes throughout the weekend.

The class lineup includes a variety of yoga styles, including Ashtanga, vinyasa, meditation and restorative, among others. There will be heated and non-heated classes.

“At Life Time Fitness, yoga has become a core part of our overall healthy-way-of-live offering,” said Jeff Zwiefel, executive vice president of operations for the Chanhassen-based company. “With the rise in popularity of yoga, our new space provides consumers with new opportunities to begin or further deepen their practice. We are excited about extending our LifePower brand and the opportunity to join the urban community of Uptown.”

The 10,000-square-foot studio housed in the former Walker Library building has a variety of packages for people interested in taking classes. It ranges from $17 for a single drop-in class to $89.95 for a monthly unlimited membership (the monthly rate for people ages 26 and younger is $69.95). The classes are free for Life Time Fitness members who have the Onyx level.

Life Time Fitness has two other LifePower studios in Arizona.

Southwest is home to many yoga studios, including the fast-growing CorePower Yoga, which also has a studio in Uptown.
