CLASSICAL PRINCIPLES WITH A CONTEMPORARY APPROACH TO PROVIDE A PURPOSEFUL AND SUSTAINABLE MIND-BODY PRACTICE FOR ALL PHASES OF LIFE. 
 
NEW TO ORLEANS YOGA?

We understand that visiting a new yoga studio can be a bit confusing, so we’ve put together a few simple guidelines that will help guide you through our class schedule, our check-in process, basic studio etiquette, and your very first class at Orleans Yoga.

If you’re brand new to yoga:

If you’re brand new to yoga, we recommend joining one of our Absolute Beginners workshops, which are scheduled periodically throughout the year {sign up for the next one on our Workshops page}. If you can’t make an Absolute Beginners workshop or you want to get started right away, start with our Gentle Basics or Extra Gentle classes, which are geared towards those new to yoga.

If you’re not new to yoga and want to learn more about our classes, you can peruse all of our class descriptions on our Yoga page.

Signing-up for classes:

We recommend using our online scheduling system to sign up and reserve your space in advance, we also welcome drop-ins. Please note that space is limited and classes do fill up--especially during the busy summer months. If you want to guarantee that you get a spot in class, sign up online ahead of time.

What you will need:

  • A yoga mat - If you do not have a yoga mat, we have have Manduka Pro mats available to rent for $3.
  • Water bottle - we do not sell bottled water but do have filtered water available at no cost to you.
  • If you’re attending one of our more vigorous classes (like Align + Flow), you might want to bring a small sweat towel.
  • Wear comfortable, brethable clothing that is not too loose. Socks off.
  • Our studio is well equipped with all other props you will need.

Before Class:

  • Classes begin on time and the door may be locked once class starts. To ensure a calm, tranquil check-in experience, please arrive 10-15 minutes before your class starts.
  • If you arrive 5 minutes late, please do your best to enter and join class quietly. Classes close 5 minutes after start time. Please note that the studio door may be locked while class is taking place.
  • Upon arrival at the studio, please leave your shoes at the door.
  • Please refrain from talking on cell phones inside the studio, and please silence your devices (turn off vibrate mode too) before entering the studio. Better yet, leave your phone in the car.

During class:

  • Please maintain soft voices in the studio before and after class.
  • Yoga and Pilates are at their essence breathing practices, so please refrain from smoking or using perfumes, body sprays, or colognes before class.
  • While it may be tempting to help assist a fellow yogi in a posture, we ask that you stay on your mat and focused on your own practice during class. Leave the assisting and instruction up to the teacher.
  • Child's pose is always available to you; make sure that you take care of your body and rest as needed throughout class.

After class:

  • If you rented a studio mat, please use the provided mat spray and hand towels to clean your mat before returning it.
  • In order to make the transitions between classes happen as smoothly as possible, please assist us by putting away all props used with care.
  • If you have any questions about anything covered in class, feel free to ask the teacher! We love to talk.
