As I am just about to finish the first quarter of my first year as a Freeman MBA, I can say that I never thought I would learn so much so quickly…but balancing such a fast-paced class schedule can be stressful! I have found that increasingly I turn to my yoga practice to clear my head and guide me through stressful times. So I was really excited when I heard that the on campus Reilly Recreation Center opened up a new campus yoga and Pilates studio, which offers 19 mind-body classes each week, with offerings including Anusaria yoga, mat Pilates, and hip-hop yoga (don’t worry- no dancing, yogis, just an up-beat soundtrack). The semester rate to join is very reasonable, and the class times work with the B-school schedule pretty well.
If you would prefer to head off campus for a yoga studio, you are in luck. New Orleans yoga studios have blossomed in recent years:
Swan River has three studios throughout the city and has instructors well versed in Jivamukti and Anusaria styles.
Yoga Balance Wellness offers Mysore style Ashtanga.
