Like many seekers, I had been haphazardly dabbling in yoga for over a decade. The Meditation Center finally gave me focus and inspired me to commit to the yoga lifestyle.
The only center in Minneapolis teaching the 5,000-year-old unbroken spiritual tradition of Raja Yoga - an integrated, *scientific*, experiential approach to improving a person's ability to skillfully use mind and body in everyday life. You won't find power yoga classes here, but extensive, indepth, thoughtful instuction in the physical as well as the mental and spiritual aspects of yoga - Hatha, meditation, pranayama, etc.
I highly recommend the Thursday night sampler as an introduction the center and to the Himalayan Tradition.

Once during a Wed. eve. free lecture at the Meditation Center some very unpleasant participants were verbally menacing and condescending patronizing to others who disagreed with or interruped them, and they proceeded to "op. editorialized" about their personal politics with impunity monopolizing the entire proceeding. In retrospect our entire group agreed that they were certifiable, self-righteous and down-right scary.

Meanwhile with a poker face, but a "superior" air of being "more 'spiritual/whatever' than thou," the instructor's/speaker's only comment about the fiasco was that it was "interesting."

On the way back home our group concured that he seemed more a cold fish and an indifferent lab-rat professor than anything remotely "spiritual"...and to him we were the rats.

Another and *final* time we attended, a guest yoga instructor/speaker M.S. seemed equally stuffy and cold. We *NEVER* returned.
