There is a community of yogis here in the Crescent City that are attracting other yogis from all around the globe. Michele had said that because of the healing New Orleans needed after Katrina, the yogis are responding to the call. Certainly her Swan River studio has been a big draw.
It also could be that New Orleans is a deeply spiritual place unlike its usual moniker as a place of debauchery.
Whatever it is, yoga has been very good to me.
