Peace, Love Art & YOGA

Did you know Ruston is home to a festival devoted entirely to the well-being of your mind, body and spirit? It’s the PLAY Festival hosted by Louisiana Yoga & Paddle. Come out October 11 to celebrate Peace, Love, Art & Yoga!

There’s no doubt yoga is rapidly growing in popularity as a way to stay physically and mentally balanced. The multitude of benefits range from stress relief and heart health to better posture, improved flexibility and weight management. 

The Yoga Barn

Yoga instructors from North Louisiana have joined together to bring this festival into its second year as a way to give back to the community. You can expect a variety of yoga and fitness classes throughout the day, led by different area instructors. Events on the agenda include stand-up paddleboard demonstrations, sessions in slack lining, aerial yoga and acro yoga. There will also be classes on belly dancing and Zumba. Yoga sessions will be held in various locations on site like the open-air Yoga Barn, the beautiful pond for stand-up paddleboard (SUP) yoga and a colorfully-decorated open pasture.
