We spoke with TANIA STEPHENS (pictured below), local owner of GREEN LOTUS & YOGA CENTER IN APPLE VALLEY. Located just south of Think Bank and on the corner of 160th & Pilot Knob, they are right next to TC Orthodontics and Falkowski Dentistry. This new locally owned woman business is very holistic in that in addition to the large Yoga Studio, they have five healing rooms. They are also hiring acupuncturists, massage therapists, psychologists, estheticians, energy workers and teachers. They also offer nutrition counseling, infrared sauna, and even life coaches. In addition to those healing services, a Master Reiki healer was just hired. The goal is health, nutrition, great choices and a wide variety of integrative and holistic healing modalities. While Tania Stephens is the owner of the new Apple Valley location, other locations are owned by others and located in Lakeville (35 & 185th on way to Brackett’s), Annandale, Eden Prairie and Mendota Heights. In addition to their in person classes (that follow COVID guidelines, they also offer online classes as an option.
