Have you heard about flash mobs? You know, the scenes in movies where people start randomly dancing to a song in sync? They all seem to happen in movies in NYC. Well, this weekend, get ready for NOLA’s first ever flash mob courtesy of Yoga Lagniappe (if you haven’t heard of YL – now is your time to sign up for their emails).
If you plan to participate – PLEASE register –>>”Get Your Yoga Lagniappe” so we know how many people to expect.
Here is a short video of the yoga sequence for the flash mob and click here for a cheat sheet.
Yoga Flash Mob
Sunday, September 30th 1-2:15pm
1:00-1:10pm – Sign in at Woldenberg Park, on the river near the Capital One Stage (at St. Louis St. between the Steam Boat Natchez and Conti St.) *The first 25 people to sign in will get a FREE Yoga Lagniappe t-shirt to wear!
1:10-1:40pm – Practice sequence together to make sure we are in sync.
1:40-2:00pm – Split into groups no larger than 3 people and walk towardJackson Square from all different directions. It’s about a 12-15 minute walk, but we want people to trickle in from all sides.
2:00pm – The bells of St. Louis Catherdal will chime. Sean Johnson and his krewe of happy kirtan players will begin playing in front of the center door of the cathedral, then we’ll lay our mats down and start the yoga flash mob.
2:10pm – We will close the sequence with 3 Oms. Then we’ll quickly gather our things and begin singing “When the Saints Go Marching In” as we “mini-secondline” out of the square and head down Chartres Street.
2:15pm – Congratulations! You will have just helped pull off the first ever Yoga Flash Mob in New Orleans. You’ll have plenty of time to make it to your Saints parties, or join us in the Quarter (location to be announced) to watch the away game at 3:30pm and get to know each other.
What to Wear: Please wear slip off shoes, so that you can hop on and off your mat quickly. Otherwise, wear what you like. Since this is a New Orleans style yoga flash mob, you are encouraged to express your love of yoga through your outfit/costume. Arrive early to be one of the first 25 people who get to wear a FREE Yoga Lagniappe t-shirt!
