Yoga with Dolphins in Las Vegas

When I think of Las Vegas I usually don’t think of calm, serenity or yoga. That’s not what Vegas is known for, and it’s not what most people are in search of when they visit.

However, on my last trip to sin city I was craving a little calm and serenity in the desert, so I was happy to find Yoga with the Dolphins at the Mirage. This non-Vegas-y activity was just what I needed to find my zen.

Yoga With The Dolphins — Finding Zen in Las Vegas

The Dolphin Yoga experience is a one hour yoga class that takes place in an underwater viewing room at the dolphin habitat at The Mirage. The class costs $50 per person and includes a post class smoothie and access to the spa for the day (ahh, spa!)

The dolphins went about their business during the class.

I thought the actual room was a tad dingy and not quite as “zen” as I usually like my yoga studios, but the viewing windows made up for that. There were 3 large windows that gave you a glimpse into the dolphin habitat.

It was cool to see the dolphins from this vantage point, although it ended up being a bit of a distraction during the class. I kept wanting to watch the dolphins, so I had a hard time focusing during the class!

Despite wanting to watch the dolphins instead of concentrating on the class, I still enjoyed it. It was a nice break from all of the hustle and bustle outside — it’s so nice to find a fun activity in Vegas that doesn’t involve gambling!

It was an easy class, suitable for beginners, and as always, you can modify any poses to suit your needs. I probably wouldn’t do it again, but I’m glad I did it once.

I would recommend trying it next time you are in Las Vegas!

    Dolphin habitat as in aquarium? That is so sad and to combine yoga with that does seem a bit ironic 🙁

      I hear ya, but I don’t think that an aquarium is a bad thing simply because it’s an aquarium. I think they can be done in a responsible way to help bring awareness to that animal. While I get what you are saying, I don’t think “ironic” is the word I would use…but to each his own. Thanks for commenting
