What has been your experience practicing at Agame Yoga & Meditation Center?
“Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious.” ~Robert Seeman

Through my new experiences of yoga, and Yoga Nidra, I’ve found PEACE.” ~Leslie LaMartiniere
“It’s just such a nice place to hang out. I love the atmosphere that Phi has created. I’ll say right now that I’m sure I’ll be practicing there for the next 49 years, so y’all can go ahead and plan on coming to my 100th birthday party and we can have a little celebration there.” ~Albert Pellissier
“It’s like a ‘free zone’… It’s a place of total freedom and acceptance. The instructors are all great – carefully non-obtrusive while quietly coaching and supporting us toward improvement.” ~Karen Denby

I know that if they do, they will experience new depths of “peace and joy” in their lives.” ~Jordan Goldson

Spreading Love in Baton Rouge & Giving Back
“Not all of us can do great things. But we can do small things with great love.” Mother Teresa
From our own little corner of Baton Rouge, we hope to give back in some small way as gratitude for life’s blessings. “We” consist of a small number of teachers and an even smaller front desk staff, whose lives have been transformed, in some way, by the beautiful practice of yoga, meditation, connection, and healing. “We” also consist of our super dedicated and amazing community of students who show up regularly on their mat to practice their own awesome transformation. Without their presence and financial support, “we” would not be here.
Our purpose is simple, to share love from deep gratitude, an interesting business model that feels at home in the heart. So our “small thing we can offer with great love” is first serving our local community through our donation based classes. We currently have 14 on our schedule. We hope to make every class a donation based class soon! And as the generous support of our community grows, we will extend our love and gratitude to more projects to come.
From our little corner of Baton Rouge, we can “be the change we wish to see in the world” (Mahatma Gandhi). Namaste.
Psst…anyone want to build a school in a developing country? provide a drinking well to those without water? empower women and children to know and experience possibilities? If you have great love to share, let us know!
