NEON MUSEUM ADDS SEPT. 14 HOT YOGA CLASS

HOT YOGA

The Neon Museum has added a new date to its hot yoga sessions in the outdoor Neon Boneyard this summer. Taught by Certified Instructor Eileen Lorraine, the final one-hour session of the season will take place at 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 14.

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.”

The 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 sessions are $18 for the general public and $13 for Neon Museum members. To make www.neonmuseum.org/happenings or call (702) 387-6366.

Loved Vegas Teacher, Mark Balfe-Taylor, Launches Hot Yoga Revitalized Complete with Teacher Trainings and Yoga in the Park

Loved Vegas Teacher, Mark Balfe-Taylor, Launches Hot Yoga Revitalized Complete with Teacher Trainings and Yoga in the Park

 

FingerStand

A few months ago, we shared our experience taking a new hot yoga class that made us move in new and unpredictable ways called Revitalize, which was created by one of Las Vegas’ most popular teachers, Mark Balfe-Taylor. Mark has been teaching yoga and teaching yoga teachers for many years and is known for his unique, educational and motivational style, as well as his charming British accent. Since he’s the creator of Revitalize, which was mentioned in the Yoga Journal, and several other equally loved contemporary hot yoga sequences, it’s not a shocker that Mark has opened his own business called Hot Yoga Revitalized and has a new home studio at the premier place for teachers in town – Sherry Goldstein’s Yoga Sanctuary. Mark is teaching several classes at both Sanctuary locations and some have a special promotional price of only $10! Definitely something we will be checking out! In addition to Revitalize, Mark will be teaching his signature yin class that has people following him to parks around the city for a free class. Did we mention he is doing free yoga in the park too! If you live in Centennial Hills, Summerlin or the Southwest area, be sure to check one of these classes out. But even more exciting, Mark and the team at Hot Yoga Revitalized are planning several teacher trainings in the coming year. They have E-RYT 200 yoga trainings planned for Mexico and Australia at the beginning of the year, and later next year a yoga retreat in Panama where you can enjoy two classes a day while surrounded by a tropical paradise. Mark says he picked Panama because it’s a hidden gem and airline tickets are surprisingly cheap. Good thinking, Mark. We are already dreaming of sun salutations on the beach.

Be sure to check out Mark’s new site, HotYogaRevitalized.com to learn when he is teaching at The Yoga Sanctuary, in the park and when his hot yoga teacher trainings are planned.

TruFusion teams up with Summerlin Yoga to offer new hot classes

If you haven’t been to Summerlin Yoga in awhile this is the perfect time to come back or check out the former Bikram studio for the first time. The studio has partnered with TruFusion Yoga and change is in the air – literally! A new floor in the yoga room means students can breathe easy while taking one of the many new TruFusion signature classes on offer. There is a new hot yoga variation called Revitalize that will be familiar to Bikram lovers but includes more modifications and allows use of tools such as blocks and straps to ensure both beginners and longstanding practitioners can reach their full potential. There is also a few variations of a vinyasa flow class called Invigorate that provides a bit more of a challenge. On the other end of the spectrum is Tru Yin, which is a series of poses held for about 5 minutes and Yin Fused, which gives students 45 minutes of vinyasa flow followed by 45 minutes of long yin stretching.
But the studio hasn’t stopped at hot yoga, there is also the ability to cross train with more cardiovascular-intensive classes such as Tru Hot Pilates and Tru Barefoot Bootcamp, which uses kettlebells for resistance to build strength. The options for both yoga and fitness allows any student who walks in the door to create a custom program that fits their own health and wellness goals. The new classes have also come with a new staff of highly experienced teachers who each have several different yoga and fitness trainings on their resumes. With so many new classes and teachers to experience, guests might be surprised to learn that the unlimited month membership has just been reduced to $49! Getting more for less, that’s a healthy deal worth checking out! Visit SummerlinYoga.com or TruFusionYoga.com for more details or follow @TruFusionYoga on Twitter. Both studios can also be found on Facebook. 
We had the opportunity to try the  Revitalize class! Our teacher Jacky was wonderful! She did not judge us but instead helped us with the poses.
This is a hot yoga class that made us move in ways we did not know we could. Our aches and pains from doing other types of workouts…. left us as the class ended. We truly enjoyed the class and everyone that works at Summerlin Yoga!!! We highly recommend this team of experts!
