The health of our Spirit, Mind and Body has always been the core of what we work for at the YMCA. While physical health is important, our mental and emotional health is vital to a healthy, happy life. Instructor-led classes and private practice can greatly enhance 2014-06-23_AOF_6268_RGBour mind and body connection. Our heated yoga studio provides a warm, quiet space to decompress, quiet our minds, build our strength and improve our lives. For a list of class options, please visit our group fitness page.


The Altru Family YMCA is pleased to offer heated mind/body class options to our members and guests.

Thanks to many Grand Forks area businesses and individuals, an unused space was renovated to a warm, wonderful mind/body practice area that is suitable for heated and non-heated classes, stretching and meditation.

Heated options mean that the temperatures range from approximately 90 to 100 degrees with the humidity at approximately 40%.

Non-heated temperatures range from approximately 75 to 85 degrees.


Self Practice

YMCA/Choice members are also invited to utilize this space for self-practice. The key can be checked out at the Fitness Center desk and users are asked to adhere to the guidelines posted in the studio.
