REYN STUDIOS: POWER YOGA
No days off, even in New Orleans!
I found this beautiful yoga space an easy 15 minute walk from Bourbon Street. Reyn Studios is a great place to get away from the French Quarter crowds, break a sweat, and clear your mind. They offer a wide range of classes, I took R2/3 which is an intermediate to advance level vinyasa flow with Lindsey Crow. Lindsey was kind, engaging, and very knowledgeable. It was evident that she has years of experience, and I was fortunate to take one of her first classes after returning from a recent yoga retreat in Bali. She began by sharing stories about her time abroad, and connected that to our intention in class. We focused on balancing softness and strength in our personal practice.
The music selection was perfect. Lindsey's taste is eclectic, and even Prince made the playlist! I was able to get lost in my zone, and challenged myself as I flowed in and out of advanced postures. The room was very warm, but I love it hot. The temperature made the ice cold eucalyptus towels that the instructor placed on my eyes during shavasana even more enjoyable! I highly recommend visiting Reyn Studios to all yogi's in Nola.
