Yoga on Ice at Crooked Lake


During the cold winter months, ice fishing takes over the frozen lakes of Minnesota. But have you heard of ice yoga?

Two years ago, Coon Rapids resident and yoga instructor Jamie Bartlett was inspired to create an ice yoga class behind her home on Crooked Lake. Since then, she's developed a loyal following of Crooked Lake ladies who've joined her on the ice.

"We did it the first time and it was amazing,” Bartlett said. “It was right at sunset, which is what we try to get."

Bartlett's business is, All Seasons Yoga which she started as a mobile yoga studio five years ago.

"I really love all seasons of Minnesota and I really wanted to build my company around doing yoga and moving outdoors," Bartlett said.

Class participant and neighbor, Melissa Laughlin has been a loyal ice yoga fan from the start.

"We've had two full seasons out here on the beautiful frozen waters of Crooked Lake,” Laughlin said. “Just embracing the winter in the most fun, creative and relaxing way, all in the same breath."

Ice yoga first-timer Stacie Klitz said she had a great experience with temperatures in the 40s.

"It was a nice, relaxing and rejuvenating experience, especially to be outdoors on a beautiful clear night doing yoga," Klitz said. 

The frozen ice on Crooked Lake is still about 20 inches thick, which means the ice yoga classes will continue for a few more weeks before ice-out. If you are interested in learning more, visit the All Seasons Yoga website.
