Forget hot yoga - Some Minnesotans embraced the frigid cold by practicing yoga outside Sunday.

Dozens of people gathered at Yess Yoga in Minneapolis for "snoga." It was an opportunity for the group to fight back against this long, cold winter with a 30 minute outdoor yoga class.

"It was kind of a fun play on the thought that we don't have hotness all year round, so we're going to bring it out to the cold weather and knock out a "snoga" event," said Owner of Yess Yoga Lucia Yess.

The business plans to donate all of the event's proceeds to the American Heart Association.
