Sama was founded in 2011 with the dream of being the first completely donation-based yoga center in the Greater New Orleans area. A few things were super important to us: 1) providing a high quality, professional studio experience that didn't feel "cheap" or in any way less than a studio that does cost money, and 2) not requiring a minimum donation. 

We're a unique, intimate space that fosters community and collective learning. We love to provide you with tea and food at our events. We regularly gather to discuss dharma, or yoga philosophy, and to investigate our minds. 


Sama is taken care of by people who volunteer their time to keep this space thriving. It's a path called Karma Yoga, and we really believe in it. So next time you're in the space and see someone teaching or taking care of the space, thank them and ask them how you can get involved!
