Happy 2012! If you’re considering recommitting to your yoga practice this year, for some extra inspiration, check out this article by Meredith Walker, breaking down 77 surprising health benefits of consistent yoga practice.
This year marks our 10th year as a yoga studio! We’ll be celebrating that anniversary throughout the year in a variety of fun ways. In the mean time, I simply want to thank you for your support over any portion of the last decade. I also want to thank all of you who participated in our community survey last month. We were encouraged by the overwhelmingly positive feedback from the surveys and inspired by many of the ideas and constructive input you shared on how we can continue to support your yoga experience.
One of the common requests in the survey was for a wider variety of price options for classes. We are excited to follow through on that request starting this month. In addition to January specials we’re running this month (New local students $60 for 10 classes; all students: 10 classes for $108), we now offer a 5 class pass, a monthly unlimited pass, a 6 month pass, and a one year yoga pass- in addition to our school/university, Americorps-Vista, senior, military, and New Orleans Food Co-Op discounts. Please visit here to see all the new price details. We also continue our emphasis on making yoga affordable and accessible to the community through our $7 community discount classes throughout the week, and weekly Wednesday night sliding scale donation classes at both studios.
Below, please check out the variety of events we have this month including a slate of Intro To Yoga Courses starting soon; our 10 week Building An Integrative Yoga Practice Course; inspiring workshops with my dear friend Jasmine Tarkeshi, co-founder of Laughing Lotus Yoga; New Year breathwork with Jack Fontana; and respected visiting teacher Sarah Powers.
Finally, with excitement for the Saints playoff run, I want to leave you with a sweet image– a photo that we’ve shared on occasion in the past. Drew Brees teaching children meditation at a local school. Who dat!
Love and Blessings,
Sean & The Wild Lotus Family
