Located in the Portofino Plaza, Yoga Unlimited imports its instructors from a variety of backgrounds in fitness such as dance, personal training, and massage therapy. Their diverse areas of expertise make for a unique motivational practice, the fruits of which spill over into daily life or all-nighter tax audits. They mold their classes to accommodate beginners and experts alike, such as with Ashtanga, which allows students to progress through six increasingly challenging series of postures at their own clip. The Pilates mat class chisels hips, backs, abs, and glutes, and Yoga Groove sets bending and stretching to spirited hip-hop, trance, electronic, and dance music in a studio more spacious than a houseboat's backyard.
When it comes to chilling out or sweating it out, Sherry Goldstein's Yoga Sanctuary offers yoga classes to tailor to any individual's needs. Out of their two Las Vegas locations, experienced instructors lead a wide range of both beginner and veteran yoga classes such as flow, Hot, Ashtanga, Power, Yin, Kundalini, Candlelight Yoga, and Yoga for Stress Relief. Upon class completion, the studio aims to improve the shape and overall well-being of their students in a supportive, welcoming environment. Yoga Sanctuary also offers yoga hikes at Red Rock Canyon, classes with live music, and special events led by world-renowned yoga teachers.
Per its name, barre3's workouts?which have been featured in Self, Marie Claire, and Women's Health?take place at the ballet barre, and consist of three phases: aligning and strengthening exercises, low-impact cardio routines, and a lengthening stretch session. The fusion workouts draw inspiration from Pilates, yoga, and ballet, and are spurred on by an upbeat soundtrack, which motivates participants to gracefully groove. For added convenience, the studio's online classes also let enthusiasts re-create the posture-improving workouts at home or in Swan Lake.
The instructors at Bikram Yoga Green Valley know that, in every active life, a little sweat must fall. From the confines of their super-heated studio, they help students boost energy, increase circulation, and master physical control with the detoxifying poses of Bikram Choudhury's 26 hatha yoga postures and two breathing exercises. They also stay sharp, continuing their training and education long after they complete their 600-hour Bikram Yoga Teachers Training course. This dedication to well-being is also reflected in the studio itself. There, students can relax with post-class showers, untangle knotted muscles with the help of an on-site massage therapist, and peruse the boutique for gear by Shakti, Bellissima, Asana, and more. Their tireless efforts helped build the type of yoga community idealized by the founder of their discipline; in 2009, Bikram Choudhury himself visited the studio to lead classes in his iconic postures and sign copies of his book.
Candles flicker and a fireplace roars near the entrance to Body Heat Hot Pilates & Yoga, signaling that balmy temperatures warm the classrooms within. The thermostat reaches at least 95 degrees during the studio’s classes, which include flowing yoga routines that strengthen the entire body and Pilates mat workouts whose isometric exercises sculpt the limbs and core. In addition to promoting relaxation, the heat makes muscles more pliable, which helps bodies to explore their full range of motion as they stretch and balance. Pores sweat throughout the workout, removing bodily toxins and waste products such as lactic acid and carbon dioxide. To keep the space smelling as fresh as a mentholated dunk tank, staffers sanitize the eco-friendly floors between each session. After class, students can unwind in showers stocked with complimentary towels, peruse a boutique filled with clothing, lotions, and yoga mats, or sniff each of the studio’s flower arrangements.
The instructors at TruFusion Yoga meld fitness with yoga, offering 15 types of classes in a 9,600 square-foot studio. Temperature-controlled rooms allow for a quick transition between heated and non-heated yoga sessions and provide a great way to prepare a frozen dinner without a microwave. As such, classes range from unheated yoga classes using kettlebells to heated barefoot boot-camp sessions, which blend yoga, Pilates, and movement drills.
