Join Minnesota Power Yoga Owner, Danielle Jokinen, for the first ever YOD Seva Safari that will lead you through new experiences, open your mind and body to new things, and create BIG things to carry into your future.

What is YOD?

YOD programming is designed to hit every aspect of your physical fitness, while creating mindfulness, and awareness of your body. It incorporates strength, flexibility, balance, speed, power, endurance, agility, coordination. Satisfying the needs that the world of physical fitness is in search of. The perfect compliment to physical fitness, or your yoga practice. Feel your muscles burn during the workout, feel your mind & body at peace by the end of class. See this inspiring and informative video 

Danielle Jokinen is the owner and teacher at Minnesota Power Yoga. She is a Certified Baptiste Yoga Teacher (200hr). She created the YOD method in 2014 after ten years of working in the fitness field. Danielle began her yoga practice in 1996, which lead her to Level 1 Baptiste Yoga Bootcamp in 2012. Baptiste’s holistic approach to health and well-being combined with the powerful transformational process allowed her to deepen her own practice and through her personal transformation and empowerment she realize that it was her purpose and passion to share this powerful practice. She opened Minnesota Power Yoga in 2013 and it became a Baptiste Affiliate Studio in 2015. Her teaching philosophy is simple - teaching is a service. Danielle approaches each class with the intention to inspire students to awaken their personal power and find peace and happiness in their lives. Danielle’s mission is to empower others to realize their purpose, live their best life, and share both with the world
