The Magic of Music and Yoga

Music has always played a key role at our Yoga Sanctuary studios in Las Vegas. Whether it's Krishna Das leading kirtans at our center or our teachers accompanying their classes with their playlists, the impact is unmistakable. The power of music especially shines bright when a very talented and renowned DJ named Inaia spins at our classes. A yogi at heart, she brilliantly fine tunes her music mix to heighten the yoga flow so every asana is experienced more intensely. Inaia is a treasure and we're ecstatic that she's returning to spin at our studio at a special class on November 19. Inaia's deep understanding of the connection between music and yoga is featured in a sensational article online in "Elephant Journal".

video: Why We Love Yoga Hikes at Red Rock

Red Rock Canyon is a mere 30 minutes from the frenetic activity on the Strip, but hiking among the rocks and canyons you’d think you were 100 miles away from a casino. The silent grandeur of the mountain peaks, the pure desert air, and the amazing natural wonders take our breath away -- especially when we're out at Red Rock practicing yoga. There is a powerful energy at the Canyon and you can feel it when you watch the video below. The music, the vistas, the rock climbing scenes are magical.

All that serenity and beauty make Red Rock the perfect setting for our Yoga Hikes. If you’d like to attend our next Yoga Hike on Sunday, September 29, drop by either of our studios to sign up, or call us at 702-240-7666 or 702-407-0043. Attendance is limited to 15 people and advance reservations are required. Click here for our Yoga Hike flyer.

Magnify The Love With Yogi/DJ Inaia

Music has always played a major role at our Yoga Sanctuary studios in Las Vegas. Whether it's a kirtan with Krishna Das, a yoga class accompanied by a singer/vocalist, or a DJ spinning while we're flowing into a pose, the music makes us take flight. A few months ago an extraordinary yogi/DJ walked into our studio named Inaia Jimenez and we've been forever blessed. Once a month (when she's not playing at top clubs all over the world) Inaia spins at a yoga class at our studio and the experience is unforgettable. Because she's a yogi at heart, Inaia synchonizes the music perfectly to the flow and the journey is breathtaking. Inaia's beautiful spirit also shines bright on a magnificent blog post titled "Magnify The Love." Click here to read it. That post inspired Inaia to create a phenomenal music mix as well.

Nothing Beats A Day Full Of Hugs

We (like thousands of others) ♥ yoga star Rachel Brathen. Like everyone else we're blown away by her stunning asanas. -- And when she flows into a headstand on a paddleboard on the water, well, all we can say is WOW!!!!! But above all that, it's that humongous heart of hers that really moves our spirit. Just check out her little "hugging" video above. Gotta love that yogi! :) We feel super blessed that Rachel will lead a class at our Las Vegas studio on July 16. (Her first yoga event EVER in Vegas!) Click here for info.

video: The Patience of a Yogi Daddy

We are big proponents of family yoga. When parents practice yoga with their kids it unites the family, builds communication skills and strengthens bonds. But let's face it. There are times when a parent desperately needs an hour of yoga for herself or himself with no kids around. Case in point: the father in the video below. (If patience is a virtue, then this man has got to be the most virtuous man on earth!)

But despite the kids, we want to believe this father is relishing every moment on the mat. To him and to all the loving dads out there, have a very Happy Father's Day. You deserve it!
