Off the Beaten Path: Unique Drop-In Yoga Classes in Shreveport

Who would have thought it possible in Shreveport to recalibrate your energy in a new age bookstore, realign your spine in a historic home teeming with art or rotate your consciousness in an old storefront? Yoga is sprouting up in Shreveport’s nooks and crannies and the breadth of the offerings and the excellence of the teachers are astonishing for a small city.

Yoga means union, but within union there is diversity. Shreveport proves that. Please enjoy this unique (but by no means exhaustive) list of highly recommended drop-in yoga classes. Multi-week courses and personal training are another topic altogether.

Please verify the given information before attending a class.

  1. Thank you Molly for taking the time and interest in getting the information out about our yoga community. We have a great group of teachers who bring their own approach to the practice of yoga. Knowing each one truly loves to share their knowledge of the science. Shreveport is very fortunate that you and Randy have chosen to be with us. With deepest gratitude, Marcia

    1. Thanks so much, Marcia! When I moved here from Austin people scoffed at the idea that S’port would have much to offer in the way of Yoga. For once I’m happy to say WRONG! Appreciate the Yoga community here so much and as you well know — you have enriched Randy and our lives so MUCH. Wishing you the best!

    1. Hello Ashley, Organic Echo Yoga still offers classes for $5.00. Marcia Sample is currently offering a donation-based class at Lotus Studio on Friday nights at 6:00 p.m. All of the other classes listed have changed location or no longer exist. Thanks for your question!
