align on a dime

 

In this section Yoga Lagniappe connects you to low cost, donation, and free yoga classes in the New Orleans area.  We encourage you to try new teachers and locations.  Although our section is called “Align on a Dime” please remember that the dime and dime stores for that matter have gone the way of the typewriter.  Teachers and studios that offer donation based classes offer us their own special yoga lagniappe.  It’s a good idea to see if the class offers information about their suggested donation range. If you cannot find direct information and don’t want to ask the teacher we suggest from $7 to $15 per class depending on your financial situation.

In addition to our list,  the New Orleans Health Department initiative Fit NOLA offers yoga and wellness activities through its partners. Fit NOLA’s mission is for New Orleans to celebrate its 300th anniversary in 2018 by becoming one of the top ten fittest city in the United States.
