Dear Magnolia Yoga Community,

We have been given the green light by the City Council of New Orleans to offer small recreational yoga experiences (10 people max) at 3 parks in New Orleans 1. City Park 2. Al Davis Park & 3. Crescent Park! This allows us to continue to offer you the healing benefits of yoga and additionally you will benefit from Sun/Vitamin D, fresh air, being in a green space and socializing safely and intentionally.

We will try these recreational yoga experiences at the park 2 weeks at a time & we are open to your feedback as we report back to the city on their success. However, we will continue our formal yoga classes virtually on Zoom for those who are unable to join us at the park either due to family responsibilities, work responsibilities, comfort level, access or transportation.  At some point soon we will also be offering the outdoor recreational yoga at the park via zoom as well!

Although we are very grateful & excited to offer our community this next level of engagement we will need & require 100% of your cooperation.  We will have to observe several safety policies and ask for your 100% commitment!

We do believe in the Phase 1 re-opening because the city is carefully following the data and we have had a 28-day straight decline in Covid-19 cases, testing has increased and the hospitals are stocked up and fully prepared to treat people should they need to. We also feel safe with the Phase 1 process because Magnolia Yoga is registered with the Fire Marshall and we have been briefed on how to safely offer our services (which are all stipulated below) and we are in close contact with the City Council on a bi-monthly basis.

Our mental, physical and emotional health is P A R A M O U N T right now! We must make regular real efforts to continue our self-care routine of a deep stretch, a deep release, of strengthening our respiratory system, boosting our immune system and managing our stress! I also truly believe we cannot be scared of each other, we actually really need each other and fear is a very dangerous thing, we believe in going slow, being smart and being optimistically cautious.

Let us support, YOU are worth the time & effort— so please join us if you are ready for an outdoor experience, its going to be lovely and/or join us on Zoom but the key word here is JOIN!

***Join us at various parks throughout New Orleans starting with our 1st Recreational Outdoor Yoga Experience this Monday, May 18th at 12pm w/ Ajax at Crescent Park under the roof at Mandeville Wharf by the elevator!*** {Check our free Magnolia Yoga App FULL LISTINGS at the PARK}

What's Happening at Magnolia?

Dear Community,

We are thrilled to share with you some of our latest news. After much soul searching & researching we have decided to take our physical yoga studio online and create a virtual yoga studio starting Wednesday, April 1st ! 

This big decision is an effort to support our amazing community during a very stressful & anxiety ridden time. Research now has proven stress is kryptonite to our immune system. A precious system we must keep healthy & robust during this time. I am sure you agree your health is priceless and non-negotiable?! 

 Science also shows the best way to stay healthy during this pandemic is to:

Stay Active

Stay Connected to Community

Keep a Routine

Now our loyal Magnolia Members can enjoy several LIVE online yoga classes weekly with your active membership through the free platform called Zoom!  Your membership will ensure your mental, physical, emotional & energetic health & wellness gets nurtured.  

Additionally, our online virtual yoga studio allows us to continue to pay your favorite yoga teachers. Lastly, our virtual yoga studio will help us ensure our physical doors remain open once this crisis passes.

There are a few easy steps to help you seamlessly continue your yoga practice with us.
