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.
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.
Because they believe movement is a precise science, the teaching team at Pilates + Yoga only recruits experts. Each certified instructor must have a background of 10 years or more in their movement-based art, whether they practice Pilates, yoga, dance, or interpretive sitting. They wield their knowledge during the studio's classes, adapting mat-based and apparatus moves to suit beginners and Pilates pros alike. Their wealth of experience also allows them to structure specialized lessons for pre- and post-natal women. From moves aboard the reformer machine to Vinyasa sequences to boot-camp circuits, they compose workouts that hone both strength and mental focus. The Pilates + Yoga studio reflects the same level of commitment toward the environment that the teachers display for their practice. Students stretch on bamboo flooring, their silhouettes dimly illuminated by low-lighting sconces, and solar blankets deter the sun. Reusable cups and cloth towels cut down on waste, and the Return Your Mat policy ensures that no mat purchased at the studio is thrown out or forced to work under wrestling Barbie dolls.
Dahn Yoga on Windmill Lane offers a holistic approach to health and wellness. The studio features a comforting classroom, where wooden floors and a large mirrored wall help to create a traditional take on Korean décor. Large wooden doors and windows let in loads of natural light, bathing attendees in a warm glow. Both relaxing and tranquil, Dahn Yoga focuses on energy and helping others to enjoy a more balanced, healthy and energetic life. Even the suggested outfits are built for comfort, with most guests sporting simple t-shirts and loose-fitting pants as a way to maximize their poses, work on their flexibility and never feel constrained. Classes taught at the studio include basic yoga, Tai Chi, core strengthening and energy movement.
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.
