When Kelly Larson and Jenn Holm partnered up 10 years ago to create a yoga studio in Savage, they didn’t know much about running a business, but they knew they wanted to cultivate a community where all felt welcome.
Celebrating 10 years of business in November 2019, co-owner Larson said the duo has learned a lot over the last decade and the business has grown a lot, too. Situated at 14020 Highway 13, the yoga studio is home to 25 teachers and 57 classes a week ranging from hot yoga, to restorative yoga to classes just for kids and everything in between.
“We really wanted it to be for anybody,” Larson said of Yoga 4 You, hence the company name. “We wanted to create a place where people could practice regardless of age and fitness level.”
Over the years, the business has expanded to add a second studio and private classes. Staying on trend, Yoga 4 You also started offering aerial yoga and pole fitness classes.
Larson said clients travel from all across the southwest metro to practice yoga at Yoga 4 You — from Belle Plaine to Minnetonka. A quality product is important, but so is good community, she said.
“That’s something we really strive for, everybody needs to be supported,” she said.
