2023 is here! Join in centering (& CELEBRATING) the mind, body & being in the cultural heart of Downtown Las Vegas: Downtown Container Park!
Young & old, active or sedentary, every BODY is capable of reaching its own unique challenge & acheiving growth along the way. Downtown Yoga continues to help Las Vegans (& tourists from all over the world) find these unique, healthy challenges through the mind-body practice of yoga. Drop by an upcoming class as we enter year 5 of promoting wellness within the DTLV community!
Our classes unfold at a welcoming pace for all. Each position, or asana, assumed during class lasts several breath cycles to allow practitioners to ease themselves into complicating forms without getting left behind. It also requires purposeful concentration, as we utilize large muscle groups together through full ranges of motion. Breathwork techniques, known as Pranayama, will be introduced. Pratyahara (sensory withdrawal) & Dhyana (meditation) are attempted as we all venture closer toward the self. Sessions are led in the Ashtanga-Vinyasa style by instructor, Rayce ‘The Realtor’ Rayos (RYT200/CPT-ACE/BS-Kinesiology). It is our aim to partner with staples of the Downtown Las Vegas community, and champion healthy economic, social & cultural collaboration.

Get in sync with these faster paced sessions that feature extended sequencing, allowing the body movement to link with the flow of breath, or Vinyasa. These night-time classes on the lawn are geared towards practitioners of all levels & abilities, working up a sweat for novice & experienced participants, alike. The varying sequences/techniques reached throughout are designed to loosen the body, strengthen the muscles, mobilize the joints, & quiet the mind. There is ample opportunity for some upper-level asana postures/peaks for those more daring, but also consist of approachable poses for our newer yogis & yoginis to work themself into. After working up a sweat, refuel the body with dinner or a beverage from one of the eco-friendly park’s dining establishments. Discounts for all yoga attendees! (see below for discount list)

In the life of any person, especially in the year 2023, taking the time to tap in with the breath & brain (while simultaneously testing our anatomy in rewarding ways) allows for growth to occur on conscious & subconscious levels. Human expression is rooted in an individual’s experiences, & what better to experience wholeheartedly than your own being? Plus, it allows us to come together as a community and raise our collective consciousness (& conscientiousness) as we share time & expend effort together !
Yoga is an ancient Sanskrit word loosely translating to union or yoke. It is said in reference to the unification of one’s body & mind through continual practice, leading to outward clarity & knowledge of self gradually taking root in diligent yoginis & yogis all over the world… for millennia!
It is truly intended for all humans, & every BODY.
See ya’ on the mat soon! Namasté.
