Welcome to NOLA Mindfulness

We offer mindfulness meditation classes in New Orleans and Covington. Science has demonstrated that these practices reduce stress, anxiety, chronic pain, and symptoms of some illnesses.

Our main offering is an 8-week course in mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR). In this course, participants use meditation and yoga to reduce stress and promote well-being. Jon Kabat-Zinn, a molecular biologist and meditation practitioner, developed MBSR in the 1970s. MBSR is taught worldwide and has been the subject of numerous peer-reviewed studies demonstrating its efficacy.

MBSR is appropriate for anyone, regardless of physical condition, and no experience with meditation or yoga is necessary. You can learn more about the curriculum in our MBSR FAQ or read testimonials from past participants.

We also offer a drop-in mindfulness meditation group for MBSR alumni and the general public, as well as mindfulness workshops at schools, businesses, medical settings and other groups. For more information about any offerings, contact Dan@nolamindfulness.com.

New MBSR course begins in April

The next MBSR course in New Orleans will be held on Wednesday evenings from April 4 to May 30. The price is $385. Financial aid is available and no one will be turned away for lack of funds. To see the full schedule and register for the course, click here.
