Overview of Dynamic Mindfulness: Online
Join us for this complimentary, 1-hour Overview of Dynamic Mindfulness, developed by The Niroga Institute of Oakland, Ca.
Led by Alan every other week on Thursday at 10 a.m., this evidence-based practice is validated by neuroscience, trauma research and somatic psychology.
The world can be so loud and hectic, but through regular yoga practice you can align and calm your mind, body and spirit. UpLIFT NOLA teaches a variety of yoga forms in a non-dogmatic manner that honors and welcomes everyone. From vinyasa and restorative, to power and gentle. We also have special courses for yoga beginners and kids, and we hope you find a practice that meets your needs.
Utilizing active yoga postures, breathing techniques and centering methods, our meditation class helps build greater self-awareness and impulse control while allowing students to better manage stress and anxiety. UpLIFT Nola offers a regular weekly group practice as well as specialized training workshops for educators and those working in school settings.

Using a non-toxic oil painting method, Peggy (who reclaimed her own passion for art after retiring) leads students through a weekly 2-hour class.
