COMMUNITY CARE: When you become a member of our studio, you're not really paying for yourself or your own classes. Instead, we invite you to realize that your membership is providing the gift of yoga to others. Your membership sustains our studio and keeps our classes free / generosity-based.
KARMA YOGA: By sharing the gift of yoga with others, you strengthen your own practices of generosity, interdependence, and Karma Yoga, and plant the seeds for more goodness to be available to YOU.
PERKS: When you sign up to become a member, you'll receive a choice of a free gift: an at-home yoga starter kit, a meditation cushion, a yoga mat, or Pada, a daily spiritual journal. You also get FREE access to many of our events and workshops, as well as the knowledge that you're supporting New Orleans' ONLY completely donation-based yoga studio.
WHAT YOU'RE SUPPORTING
ACCESSIBILITY: We're a community of individuals committed to the path of seva, or service to others as a path to liberation for all beings. We provide unlimited free and generosity-based yoga and meditation classes, silent retreats, trainings, and more, regardless of an individual's ability to pay.
TEACHINGS: Our goal is to help all beings achieve a state of wellness, happiness, and peace that is accessible through the teachings of yoga and Buddhism.
SERVICES: A portion of our membership fees supports our partner organization Santosha Village, which provides wellness services to the unhoused population of New Orleans via food, showers, haircuts, day trips, and more.
Additionally, we are 100% run by volunteers!
WHAT OUR MEMBERS SAY
"There's no other yoga studio where ALL are welcome without barriers and that's available to all levels from the beginner to the seasoned practitioner. I'm a member because I want to give this mission continued life."
"I love the refreshing quality of SRY Arabi. I feel a connection to the simplicity of being in my body. I feel at peace here. And I feel true community: no judgment, no cliques, just a deep welcoming presence to people of all ages, races, religious backgrounds, and economic status."
"SRY Arabi has changed my life. I feel better physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. I love the wonderful people I've met. I've learned so much about yoga, meditation, and spiritual growth. Being a regular monthly contributor is the right thing to do."
"My experiences here have not only changed my approach to every day, but have also given me a better understanding of how to navigate or begin to approach whatever I may encounter in life. I've benefited immensely from this space and hope their mission of providing yoga to all can continue for many years to come!
"SRY Arabi is more than a place where everyone has equal access to nourishing, quality resources -- it's also a loving, vibrant community that embodies the vision of collective care. Supporting them reminds me that when I take care of my community, I take care of myself."
