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 temporarily eliminating all in-person services, increasing the complimentary resources that can be shared online, and moving some of our classes and group meditation online.

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, restorative, and yin to hatha and special courses for yoga beginners and kids, 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.
