Where to get your yoga on in Spring Valley, Las Vegas
Spring Valley, by far, is yoga’s epicenter in the Valley. We’ve found more studios and gyms offering yoga classes in this area than any other. Lucky you, if you live or work here. Here are a handful of the highest rated yoga studios in Spring Valley.
- 103 Hot Pilates and Yoga
When you visit 103 for the first time you can’t help but notice how clean it is. While other studios seem to find it a challenge to keep up the hygiene, 103 excels at it – even the showers are a joy to use.
We love the variety of yoga classes and that they’re offered both early in the morning and in the evening. Wow – a studio that caters to their customers’ hours – imagine that!
Classes are challenging, but they do offer some for beginners and, despite the studio’s name, they offer an unheated Ashtanga Flow class.
Find 103 Hot Pilates and Yoga at 4245 S Grand Canyon Dr. in Vegas and visit them on the web at 103yoga.com.
- Ashtanga Yoga Las Vegas
Founded by K. Pattabhi Jois, Ashtanga yoga is more challenging than most and it’s great for building core strength. It is, in fact, " 99% transpiration and 1% explanation," according to Jois.
But, really, some explanation is necessary. Such as the fact that classes aren’t held on “moon days,” because these days are considered “yoga holidays in the Ashtanga Yoga tradition.” You can get the full explanation of the reasoning behind this on the studio’s website.
You might also need an explanation of the studio’s Mysore-style classes where students are instructed individually and learn at their own pace.
Ashtanga Yoga Las Vegas offers a $20 drop-in rate and a new-student special ($100.00 for 3- day-a-week Mysore, good for 30 days).
The studio is located inside Heather’s Dance Life at 6565 South Ft. Apache.
- EOS Fitness
Although they had us at the 7-day free guest pass, there’s a lot more to like about EOS Fitness than a cheap way to get started. No, it’s not a strictly yoga studio, but the amenities available for before and after a yoga class may be worthwhile for some. These include Zumba and the newly-popular aqua Zumba. You’ll find yoga practice, though, from 5:30 a.m. to around 7:30 p.m.
There are EOS facilities across the valley, but in Spring Valley they’re located in the extreme southern portion of Spring Valley, just east of Rhodes Ranch at 7070 S. Durango.
- Inferno Hot Pilates
Let’s face it – there isn’t anything slow about life in Vegas. So, when it’s time to relax, and treat your body to a slow-down, Yin yoga is the antidote to Sin City. Since this isn’t a yoga studio, however, you’ll be limited in when you can practice. I found four classes on a Monday, but your mileage may vary. Inferno is located at 9130 W Russell Rd. Check them out online at hotpilateslasvegas.com.
- The Grateful Yogi
Need to de-stress from a rough week? Drop in at a Yin class at The Grateful Yogi. You’ll also find beginners’ classes, candlelight practice, vinyasa and more.
The highlight of the studio – at least in reading Yelp reviews – is its owner, Ashley Winn (Steve’s niece). A former journalist and student of Buddhism, Confucianism and Taoism, according to the Las Vegas Review Journal, she also sings and music is a big part of her yoga practice. Her clients are crazy about both her and the studio.
She offers a $17 drop-in rate ($13 for local teachers) and monthly unlimited classes for $108.
Although the Las Vegas Review Journal’s Doug Elfman calls it “Summerlin’s The Grateful Yogi,” the studio is actually located squarely within Spring Valley, at 6070 S. Rainbow, just north of Patrick. Find them online at thegratefulyogi.com.
