Yoga on the Strip? Monte Carlo’s Plaza makes it work

Monte Carlo has been offering yoga classes on the Strip on Saturday mornings since October.

Monte Carlo hotel guests have been enjoying a somewhat unexpected new resort amenity since October—complementary Saturday morning yoga, right smack on the Strip.

It may seem like a less-than-peaceful way to start your day, but it actually fits nicely with other programming at the Monte Carlo’s beautifully renovated Strip-side plaza, and the classes are held in a separated, more relaxed environment. “Out of all the places I’ve taught, this is obviously the loudest and most potentially distracting, but they’ve managed to create an environment where we can block it all out,” says veteran instructor Alicia Goldsmith. “Once the music goes down and the yoga music comes up, that Plaza is transformed for sure. It kind of happens magically. We get in the zone.”
