JUKARI Fit to Flex at Bellagio Spa
If you have ever left a Cirque du Soleil show looking for a more participatory experience, the Bellagio Spa has something that is sure to appeal to you. Cirque du Soleil and Reebok have combined their respective expertise to create a rather unique exercise program called JUKARI Fit to Flex. The Press Release makes the program hard to resist for any fitness minded Cirque du Soleil fan:
Inspired by the strong controlled movements performed by Cirque artists, this cardio-infused program works to enhance flexibility, muscle tone and coordination. Using the specially designed JUKARI Band and set to custom-mixed Cirque du Soleil music, participants get a taste of the training Cirque performers undergo while developing long, lean muscles and powerful core strength.
Cost: $40 per person Time Length: 50 minutes; Wednesday – Friday at 9 a.m. and Saturdays at 10 a.m.
Indoor Hike at Aria
While it is not uncommon to feel that the walk from your Vegas hotel room to the Strip is the equivalent of a long walk through the wilderness, in terms of walking distance, not scenery. Aria has turned this seemingly negative aspect of a humongous hotel casino complex into a more positive and healthful experience. The Spa and Salon at Aria offer The Indoor Hike which takes participants throughout the CityCenter Complex. This is a real workout as the Press Release details:
This heart-pumping workout focuses on the whole body as guests perform yoga and various exercises along the way. This exhilarating workout focuses on the whole body with a sprint through the convention center, jumping jacks in front of HAZE nightclub and pushups in the garden areas. While working out, guests also have the chance to admire ARIA’s art collection, one of the largest public art programs in the world.
Of course we would augment the Hike with a few more exercises in the casino areas, such as: sprint through the Cashier’s Cage, I doubt Casino Security would be thrilled with that addition, and perhaps push-ups in the Poker Room would be a bit distracting, but you would think Jumping Jacks by the Wheel-Of Fortune machines would be amusing for one and all.
Cost = $50; Time = 60 minutes
Yoga with Dolphins at the Mirage
For something on the more tranquil side, with just a hint of new age mysticism, The Mirage is offering a Yoga with Dolphins experience. The Yoga Class takes place in the underwater viewing area within Siegfried & Roy’s Secret Garden and Dolphin Habitat. In addition to their preternatural smiles Dolphins are conscious breathers. The close proximity of these ‘smiling’ conscious breathers seemingly enhances the breath-work espoused in the Yoga class. Yoga mats, water and towels are provided for the 60-minute session which ends with a delicious smoothie to help kick-start the day.
Cost = $50; Time = 60 minutes Friday- Sunday 8:30am
