Our Mission

The mission of The Floating Lotus is to provide the best yoga and spa services as we partner with our clients on their quest to nourish and renew mind, body and spirit.

Our History

Cassandra Benning, owner of the Floating Lotus Yoga Studio and Day Spa, graduated from UCA with a bachelor’s degree in business administration in 1998. In 2000, upon encouragement from one of her Yoga instructors, Cassandra began training to become a Yoga teacher. She has been devoted to Yoga ever since.

The healing, restorative nature of Yoga led Cassandra to embrace another passion – skin care. She earned her aesthetician license in 2005.

Cassandra launched The Floating Lotus in June, 2009, in a cozy spot on H Street in Little Rock. The business reflected the values she holds important.

As her clientele increased, she realized that expansion would be necessary in order to meet the needs of this growing family. So, in 2011, the Floating Lotus Yoga Studio and Day Spa moved to its current location on University Ave. Cassandra transformed the existing space into a quiet oasis for renewal which continues to flourish.
