Load up on zen this summer with a free hot yoga series.
Friends of Lafitte Greenway are bringing back their popular summertime hot yoga classes this year, open to all ages and skill levels. The free weekly course – which runs for eight weeks – will be led by The Ohm Well’s Valerie McMillan, an instructor with a passion for creating inclusive and safe spaces for all of her students on and off the mat.
The classes are all-levels, and beginners are welcome. Participants should bring a towel and water, and are encouraged to bring a friend.
The series kicks of Wednesday on the field at Sojourner Truth Neighborhood Center, 2200 Lafitte St. Classes run from 6 to 7 p.m. through August 2.
The series is part of Friends of Lafitte Greenway’s fitness program, Get Fit the Green Way, committed to improving opportunities for health and wellbeing for all New Orleans residents and Lafitte Greenway communities.
The organization hosts outdoor Zumba, boot camps and other fitness series throughout the year. Last summer’s yoga series drew hundreds of participants from ten New Orleans neighborhoods. This free yoga series is made possible thanks to the generous support of Friends of Lafitte Greenway’s members, Aetna Better Health of Louisiana, and Lululemon Athletica.
