Amazing since Day 1. My first class at Yoga Sanctuary was almost a year ago. Not only was I new to the studio, but I was totally new to yoga. I had prepared myself to be a little intimidated and overwhelmed, but found the exact opposite even on my first day. The front desk person greeted me warmly which was a delightful start, and Kathryn who led the class was a knowledgeable and a giving teacher -- making me feel comfortable and capable. Every day since has been as great as that first one. I've taken yoga classes with almost all of the teachers -- each brings his/her own perspective to the class, but the common thread is a commitment to create a fun, inviting, and nurturing environment. I love that they have two studio locations so I can go to the center that's most convenient for me on any given day and follow teachers that are my favorites. The studios are also so beautiful. It's like I have a private oasis each time I visit. I feel lucky to have found such a wonderful home for my practice. Try a class -- you won't be disappointed!
FEELING STRESSED OUT? GO TO YOGA SANCTUARY. All the recent economic news was getting me depressed. The whole situation was scaring the h*** out of me! So I called a close girlfriend to vent. She tried to calm me down but I was a mess. She then suggested that I come along with her to a yoga class that night because she thought it might help. I was not eager to go since I never did yoga before, but I felt so desperate that I went. It was a beginner class at the Yoga Sanctuary on Eastern Avenue and the teacher was named Heather. All I want to say is THANK YOU HEATHER AND THANK YOU YOGA SANCTUARY!!!! I could not believe how relaxed I felt by the end of class. The breathing exercises and the yoga stretches really brought me peace of mind. Heather made me feel so welcome and was very reassuring. The studio is also great, beautifully designed with awesome views of the mountains. I signed up for one of their introductory yoga packages (good deal!) and I try to take yoga classes twice a week. I sometimes also take classes at the Yoga Sanctuary studio on the west side. I am definitely coping better and I keep thanking my friend for introducing me to the studio.
New love for Ashtanga!. I am an artist from New York, & when I am in town I go to Sherry Goldsteins. A few weeks ago I tried an ashtanga class with a teacher named Michelle. I was a little nervous, because I had never done Ashtanga before. However, I was surprisingly put to ease during the first 10 minutes! The instructor was so helpful,knowledgeable, & just so down to earth, that I really enjoyed the class! I have always had a wonderful experience there. I will be visiting soon, all the techers are great, & the schedule is very convenient.
In Praise of Yoga Sanctuary. When you?re on the road and away from your local studio, it?s always a treat to find a place where you can do some yoga and maybe even make a few friends. Yoga Sanctuary in Las Vegas is one such place. Truthfully my first visit to Yoga Sanctuary wasn?t to practice yoga, but simply to purchase a candle for my sister at their gift shop. But when I walked into the studio and had a look at their schedule and the space, I started to have a feeling that it might be a place worth trying out. The next day I came for an Ashtanga session and was pleasantly surprised to find a great class led by a very knowledgeable and helpful instructor. His name was Shawn. I noticed he was teaching again later in the week so I returned to take class with him once more. It was rewarding physically and for my soul. After class I chatted with some of the students and they were kind enough to invite me to join them at a nearby Starbucks. The company couldn't have been sweeter or warmer. If you are an out-of-town yogi I urge you to put Yoga Sanctuary on your "must visit" list. BTW, the students told me that Yoga Sanctuary just opened a second location in east Las Vegas if you happen to be staying in that part of town.
Last spring I found myself in dire need of some spiritual/emotional help, having just been dumped by my boyfriend and then my employer, blind-sided in a span of two weeks, I sought comfort in chocolate and hiding in my house. After a month of wallowing in pity and sorrow, I knew I had to do something.
The first couple of classes I attended, I would cry,silently during the meditation at the end of the class. The music touched the hurt in me even though I had no clue what the lyrics meant. I was out of shape, overweight and still feeling sorry for myself. And, even though I felt really discouraged because I could not do some of the positions, I kept at it. Kim's spiritual readings and the bliss that surrounds her when she teaches the class kept me going back. Not only did I get better at it, but by finding the peace that yoga gave me, I found my smile and my laughter again and trimmed down. I am certain that Kim has no idea how much she helped me through a really sad and challenging time in my life just by sharing her bliss and love of yoga. Thank you Kim.
expensive waste of time. I'm new to Vegas and I've tried 4 studios. This was by far the most expensive and least pleasant of the group. It's in a terrible location (far northwest) and the people were very unfriendly. I went to the 10:00 Saturday class. I do not recommend it.
Head and shoulders above the rest. After having studied at several other local studios, I finally checked out Goldstein's Yoga Sanctuary. What took me so long! Yoga Sanctuary's classes are head and shoulders above the rest, and so is the studio space. Big, clean, beautiful. You won't want to leave because the atmosphere is so nice. They offer an eclectic mix of styles, including flow, ashtanga, hot, power, gentle, beginner. You DEFINITELY have choices. They also have a great lineup of teachers who were all very friendly. Their instruction was insightful, caring and accomodating to all fitness levels. I highly recommend checking out this space. (This is definitely Las Vegas' best kept yoga secret.)
Rave Reviews from Someone New to Yoga!. I'm sorry I didn't find Yoga Sanctuary sooner--it has made such a difference to me. I had been thinking about trying a yoga class for a while but I was a little nervous about my abilities and didn't want to look foolish. My sister and her boyfriend kept telling me to try a beginner class at Yoga Sanctuary. (They both take more advanced classes at the studio and are in unbelievable shape!) One day I finally got up the courage and went to a yoga basics class at Yoga Sanctuary. The teacher Lucrezia assured me that I would be fine and she was right. She's a great instructor and would show how every pose could be varied if the students didn't have the flexibility to do the full pose. I now love my yoga classes and I cannot believe the vast improvement in my physical body and overall well-being. I feel happier, focused, a deep serenity within. To all prospective and new students, I say jump in! Just start with beginner classes. You will be astonished to feel yourself grow exponentially. Like me you will also come to appreciate why Yoga Sanctuary is the most popular yoga studio here. It's exceptional in every way--teachers, location, class choices, environment. The instructors are excellent and will help you stretch your abilities while honoring your limitations. Thank you to Lucrezia, Sharon, Heidi and other instructors at Yoga Sanctuary for sharing your energy and bliss. I am grateful to all of you.
Treat you like family. I'm hooked on this place!. I love this studio and am very grateful to have found it. Everyone working here is wonderful and treats you like family. The teachers are superb and give you very personalized instruction. The interior is simply beautiful, both in form and substance. My first impression was warm and welcoming. None of that has changed. I can't imagine taking yoga at another place (and I hear the same thing from so many other students here). There's a connection you develop to the teachers here, that frankly, I've failed to find anywhere else. I feel like a different person after each class and I can tell you, I've gone from 0 yoga to yoga 3 times a week and I am hooked.
Los Angeles Yogi Loves This Place. I was visiting a cousin in Las Vegas last week and heard that Max Strom was teaching a workshop here on Friday night so I took it. (I was a regular at Max's class when he taught at Sacred Movement in Santa Monica.) Being a yoga snob from L.A. I was prepared to be underwhelmed by this studio, but it was awesome. The studio classroom was bigger than anything I'd seen in L.A. and the atmosphere was very zen. Cool space. There was also a genuine warmth to the place. If I didn't have to return to L.A. I would have come back and taken some classes here. They had flow classes scheduled every day which I love. I also met some of the studio's instructors at Max's workshop and they were extremely friendly.
