“And the people stayed home. And read books, and listened, and rested, and exercised, and made art, and played games, and learned new ways of being, and were still. And listened more deeply. Some meditated, some prayed, some danced. Some met their shadows. And the people began to think differently.
And the people healed. And, in the absence of people living in ignorant, dangerous, mindless, and heartless ways, the earth began to heal.
And when the danger passed, and the people joined together again, they grieved their losses, and made new choices, and dreamed new images, and created new ways to live and heal the earth fully, as they had been healed.”
Dear Wild Lotus Yoga Community–
If yoga prepares us for anything, it’s for change, and we’re looking forward to supporting each other and seeking the gifts inside this challenging time together.
Currently with the Phase 1 “Safest At Home” protocols, the state and city have prohibited in-person group fitness classes. We will be taking into account advice from trusted public health experts and local officials to very carefully evaluate when and how we can reopen in a way that best serves you, your loved ones, our staff, and our wider community’s health and well-being. In the meantime, please join us at Wild Lotus Yoga Online, where students in NOLA and around the world have been participating in our daily classes!
To support our teachers and admin staff through this time of uncertainty, we are paying everyone what they would make if we were still offering our full schedule of onsite classes. We’d be so grateful for your support by not cancelling your memberships, if you can.
Our Online Classes – How Does It Work?
Our goal is to stay connected, continue to support your well-being at this uncertain time, to continue to share offerings that are accessible and affordable, and to also find creative ways to pay our bills and support our teachers until we can return to in-person classes again.
This is the system that we’ve come up with right now, and may make changes as we learn more:
Register for the classes below at least a half hour before the class start time and we’ll e-mail you a unique private link approximately 15 minutes before the class begins, to enable you to take the class in the comfort of your own home. If you don’t receive the email in your inbox, be sure to check other folders like “Promotions” or “Spam.” To give you some flexibility with your schedule, the link will be live for 24 hours after the scheduled class start time, so you can practice during the designated time of the class or anytime during that 24 hour window. The 24 hour window allows for folks who like to practice in the morning to work with the classes from the afternoon and evening before.
Here are our price and membership options and you can also purchase a gift card for a friend or loved one anywhere in the world to help support the studio. Purchasing a membership or class package is much more affordable than a single class drop-in.
Also see the special interactive courses and workshops we’ll be offering through Zoom. Continuing our ongoing effort to help make yoga accessible to the community, we’ll also have discounted community classes each week and complimentary offerings publicly available to all on our new Wild Lotus Yoga YouTube Channel.
Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
