Stretching Body and Mind

The new Church of Yoga opens in the heart of New Orleans.
February 1st, 2017 by: Misty Miloto

Dana Trixie Flynn — founder of the popular bicoastal yoga centers, Laughing Lotus — is opening a multifunctional yoga studio and community center in an old church in the Treme on Feb. 11. Known as the Church of Yoga, the center will be a place for “the party and the prayer,” and will offer donation-based yoga and meditation classes. The Church of Yoga will also offer outreach as a way to introduce yoga to a new audience of yogis.

The Treme neighborhood with its iconic brass bands fits perfectly with Flynn’s musical Lotus Flow yoga. The Church of Yoga will also host community events, weddings, yoga retreats, online classes, musical and gospel performances, and teacher trainings. Be sure to also check out the Church Lady Café, which will offer vegan Cajun specialties and non-alcoholic elixir shots. 1480 N. Rocheblave St., (646) 785-7220,
