Why yoga at the YMCA?
YMCA yoga classes meet the needs of each student. Our unique practices are based on intuition and tradition. No matter where you are in your practice or what your current state of health is, our classes are for you. Discover the mental peace, the sense of gratitude, the opening of some formerly inflexible area in the body or mind, and the feeling of community. The YMCA offers yoga classes every day of the week between our two facilities! And the best part? These classes are included in your YMCA membership!

Join us for a series of three classes, designed just for beginners! You’ll learn foundational poses, breath work, and relaxation in a nurturing and welcoming environment. Intro to Yoga Workshops are a great start for anyone who is just beginning their practice, or those looking to go “back-to-basics” to further deepen their yoga journey. Registration is required, but these workshops are FREE for members! Courses offered September – May.
Our foundational courses aren’t just for beginners! Even experienced individuals can feel free to participate to improve form, troubleshoot problem areas, learn foundational techniques, and more!
Candlelight Yoga and Yoga in the Park events were organized by our YMCA to create unity, bring awareness and raise dollars for local causes in the Fargo/Moorhead/West Fargo community. These events make yoga community-minded, accessible and fun! Events are free will donation (suggested minimum $5) and 100% of the proceeds go to designated charities. Just bring a mat and group of friends (a small number of mats will be available for use).
Unwind, relax, and chill out! Practiced in the gentle glow of candlelight, this all-levels class will help you relax, melt away tension, and relieve stress. Classes are held monthly in the Fall, Winter, and Spring. Events are free will donation for members and 100% of the proceeds go to LIVESTRONG® at the YMCA.
