Las Vegas may be known as a city of excess, but it’s also home to tranquil yoga classes for visitors. Here are a few standouts where you can purify your body and spirit after a night of partying hard.
At Mandarin Oriental Las Vegas, guests can soak up stunning Strip views from its eighth-floor yoga studio’s floor-to-ceiling windows as they practice vinyasa, an invigorating style of “flow” yoga that links poses, mind and breath. Ideal for beginners, the 75-minute class is available daily at 8:30 and 11:30 a.m. and is free for hotel guests (for nonguests, it’s $35). www.mandarinoriental.com
Trump International Hotel Las Vegas offers a rotation of daily yoga classes overlooking the Strip too, including vinyasa, Qi (gentle movements that allow participants to breathe more deeply as they stretch their mind and body) and “yogalates” (a fusion of Pilates and vinyasa). Priced at $12, each hour-long class is held outside on the property’s seventh-floor north deck or, dependent on weather, in its studio on the 19th floor. www.trumphotelcollection.com/las-vegas
Want to get an early start with yoga and a refreshing dip in a pool? Try Encore Las Vegas. Its 50-minute Sunrise Yoga poolside class is offered to resort and spa guests at 6:30 a.m. for $30. www.wynnlasvegas.com/roomssuites/encoreresort
Monte Carlo guests can have a Strip-side yoga experience with complimentary yoga in the Plaza. The hour-long class is reserved exclusively for hotel guests and takes place every Saturday at 8 a.m. www.montecarlo.com Aspiring yogis can even practice their downward dog amongst the darling dolphins with the Mirage’s “Yoga Among the Dolphins.” Offered adjacent to a serene underwater view, the hour-long class is held Friday to Sunday at 8:30 a.m. The class is priced at $50, and participants receive a post-class smoothie and spa day pass.
