We can all breathe easier — literally. We’re MOVING!

New address as of Oct. 2, 2012: 5050 W. Esplanade Ave., Suite D, Metairie LA 70006

We are thrilled to announce that Namasté of Metairie is moving to a new location! Our decision to move was driven by input from students and instructors — you asked, we listened! This move is a positive experience for us all and invites us to embrace the power of growth that comes with change.

The move is scheduled for Monday, October 1, after the 5:45AM Early Bird class. If all goes as planned with the move, Tuesday, October 2 will be our first full day of classes in the new studio, located at 5050 W. Esplanade Ave., Suite D, Metairie LA 70006. We will update the website regularly to keep you informed.

We chose the new location with two key priorities in mind: 1.) alter everyone’s commute and routine as little as possible and 2.) work within our existing budget to avoid increasing per-class costs.

As we transition to the new location, we’ll be rolling out a NEW AUTO-RENEW MEMBERSHIP option: for $99/month, MEMBERS will get unlimited regularly scheduled yoga and pilates classes PLUS 20 PERCENT OFF all studio workshops and 10 PERCENT OFF studio retail products (coming soon!)

We will also offer NEW STUDENTS a $25 1-week unlimited yoga & Pilates mat class pass in order to fully experience all that our studio has to offer. This pass is also available to you — our current students — for a one-time purchase! We are hopeful you will try the 1-week unlimited on for size in consideration of the monthly unlimited membership.

GENTLE YOGA will remain $5/class with the purchase of a 5-class pass, valid for 60 days. Drop-in for Gentle Yoga will increase to $10 — this is in line with the drop-in fee for our Early Bird classes and is a necessary step on the administrative side. 99 percent of our Gentle Yoga students are regular attendees, so the class pass option should not increase a per-class price.

The studio will continue to offer Early Bird passes for $49, 5-Class passes for $65, 10-Class passes for $120 and drop-in options.
