COVID studio protocols

The city of New Orleans is now at phase 2 in its COVID response. We are continuing to limit class sizes and conducting some classes outdoors. Please be sure to register early for any in-person class (indoor or outdoor) since we have ceased drop-in registrations until we get out of current COVID restrictions.


Our Online Services

While UpLIFT Nola is already an intimate studio with small class sizes, out of an abundance of caution and care, we are limiting in-person services. Check out these online services being offered via Zoom.

Steps to take: 1. Sign up here 2. You will receive a follow up email from the studio with the Zoom link for access 3. On the day and time of the group session, have a chair or cushion on hand, log in and have fun

Private Yoga Classes Online


We miss seeing all of you in the studio, but that doesn't mean you can't get on the mat to practice with us. We are now offering private individual and group yoga classes by appointment.

These are online classes, taught via Zoom. If you'd like to schedule a class, please email us at  ​
