Tradition meets Innovation.

Parish Pilates and Yoga is a unique space in the heart of Mid CIty where traditional yoga and pilates are taught alongside smart and modern takes on classical practices. Our goal at Parish is to provide you with a complete system for health and wellness —  both mind and body! 

We offer a comprehensive yoga program, including traditional, modern, and Ashtanga based vinyasa (flow yoga), hot vinyasa, Yin yoga, and several yoga for athletes and athletic recovery classes. Parish is dedicated to providing accessible, everyday yoga for Baton Rouge's many professional and recreational athletes in addition to our unique vinyasa flow classes.  Our experienced teachers work with every individual to customize their practice to fit their needs, from seasoned yogis to newbs.

Parish is the only studio in Baton Rouge to specialize in Springboard equipment pilates. Springboards have similar functionality to the Cadillac/Trapeze table, but create additional stabilization and coordination challenges useful in functional strength training. Our Springboard classes include Springboard Classic and Springboard LIT, which is our cardio pilates class. If you're feeling adventurous, try our Mixed Equipment class, where your instructors will use the Springboards, ballet bar, and TRX trainers to make it real weird.

The word yoga at its simplest means "to connect". At Parish, we want to connect to our community in meaningful ways, and foster an environment where everyone is welcome, included, and loved for who they are.  We are committed to social justice, science education and advocacy, and equal rights. As such we will occasionally be hosting events so our diverse community can grow together.  

 

 
 
We have 10 stations for our equipment classes, each with a Balanced Body Springboard, a ballet barre, and a TRX trainer at each.

We think Springboard and Yoga go pretty great together... We call this move the "Try-not-to-explode-or-fall-on-your-face-and-think-nice-thoughts-oh-and-also-breathe-and-make it-real-weird".
