About Us

UpLIFT NOLA |  840 Opelousas Ave., New Orleans, La. 70114  

UpLIFT Nola is located in the beautiful, historic Algiers Point neighborhood on the Westbank of New Orleans. The studio is more than 100 years old and has served the community in numerous capacities, but today it offers a quaint and quiet place to rejuvenate. Our teachers use dynamic mindfulness, meditation, yoga, art and other wellness practices to help students shake off the stress of life and restore balance.


Owners Alan and Michelle Delery are both New Orleans natives. Alan is a Dynamic Mindfulness certified trainer with the Niroga Institute of Oakland, Ca. He has taught restorative approaches and conflict resolution in and around the region for more than 20 years. He's currently expanding his practice through his participation in the Mindfulness Meditation Training Certification Program facilitated by Tara Brach and Jack Kornfield. Michelle is a professional communications and public relations leader and passionate student of inclusive and restorative yoga. She completed her 200-hour yoga teacher training with the Shanti Yoga Training School and she is a certified Yoga for All instructor. She leads gentle and chair yoga classes.
