Best In: Las Vegas Hot Yoga in one of the COOLEST Places
Vegas has its fair share of interesting and eclectic people and entertainment venues. This by FAR is one of my most favorite places to go in Sin City – the Neon Museum. And now it offers even more…think Downward Dog in the Boneyard. Yeah – you heard me…
For the first time, the Neon Museum will offer hot yoga in its outdoor Neon Boneyard this summer. Taught by Certified Instructor Eileen Lorraine, the one-hour sessions will take place on five Wednesdays beginning at 5:30 p.m.: July 6, July 20, August 3, August 17 and August 31.
Lorraine’s class is appropriate for everyone from beginners to advanced yogis and will consist of a 60-minute flowing vinyasa session set to vintage Las Vegas-inspired beats.
“Yoga at the Neon Museum offers the perfect blend of nostalgia and what’s new,” explained Lorraine. “We will expand our minds and body by practicing in this unexpected environment surrounded by Las Vegas’ most recognizable art form—it will be a satisfying cocktail of external stimulation and internal meditation and movement.”
Each class will be held in the shaded portion of the Neon Boneyard, but temperatures are expected to soar to 100 degrees or higher. Participants should bring plenty of water and their own yoga mat, towel and any additional yoga equipment they require. The Neon Museum does not have any yoga gear to lend for these sessions.
Yoga at the Neon Museum Boneyard is restricted to participants 18 years of age or older or children accompanied by an adult guardian.
Yoga sessions are $18 for the general public and $13 for Neon Museum members. To make or call (702) 387-6366.
