I'm reading these reviews because they have a special going on "Groupon." Don't think I'm going to sign up:{

Used to be good, now packed and greedy – Holy money grubbers, Batman! I used to love this studio a few years ago when it was unpacked and $10 a class. Now it's nearly $20 a class to be jammed into a tiny room with waaaaay too many people. There are no locker rooms or showers. If you need to change, you have to go in one of their two tiny bathroom stalls. The only reason I once loved this studio was Shawn and Sharon, who teach Ashtanga and Restorative Flow, respectively.

Now on to the part that irritates the heck out of me.

Here's the deal: I was given a GIFT of an auto-pay package for a year and the last payment fell through apparently. Even though I never went to the studio for 8+ months of that year (I broke my foot), they hounded me for that month payment. Um, check your records, guys - I never went to a class. Oh right, and this was a GIFT. How is it my responsibility to pay this? And no, I'm not making this up. I couldn't believe it either.

One of the managers, Megan I think it is, is dreadful - very sweet sounding, but the words that actually come out of her mouth are rude and threatening. How does that even work? She called me several times a week to try and squeeze that $99 payment out of me that wasn't even my responsibility, which I very nicely (at first) told her was not my responsibility and to check her records.

So what did they do, despite knowing all this? Instead of being a courteous group of "yogis" with a busy business, they send me to collections for $99. Wow. Really? Is that even legal? I'll have to check into it.

I am fed up with these people and am seriously disappointed in their behavior and greed. I hope Shawn and Sharon go work at a different studio, because I would gladly take their classes elsewhere (they are amazing teachers). Sorry for such a horrible review, but it needs to be said so that either people can avoid this studio and patronize a better place, or so that this studio knows to take it upon themselves to improve and provide people a more genuine experience, and less of a "I need your credit card now" vibe.

Rockin – I was amazed at how much fun I was having too! Trisha and Jesse worked me hard while making me smile and laugh as the hour passed. I find myself missing the camaraderie almost as much as the expert instruction. Pilates takes mental energy and the descriptive approaches given and encouragement along the way are best in class! Thank you to Cassidy and her tremendous staff! TRY THEM OUT!

Poor Business Practices – I finally felt it was time to write a review about the extremely poor business practices at Sherry Goldstein's Yoga Sanctuary.

I've been going to this studio every since I came to Las Vegas - over a year ago. I have a consistent yoga practice and I searched the Las Vegas community for the studio with the highest quality teachers and largest class schedule. I found the Yoga Sanctuary through the internet and it also happens to be close to my home.

On several occasions I've had issues with a particular front desk person. First, I brought a $100 bill to pay for my class package and she gave me a tremendous hassle about it. I couldn't figure out why you can use this bill everywhere else in town but not at the yoga studio. They can't seem to find a method to check the bills with. How about writing the person's name & drivers license number on the bill and if it comes back you have all of their personal I.D. to contact them or the police?? Sounds simple...

Next I came to class and waited for the teacher to show up. We were told she went to the wrong studio and was on her way. It would be 20 minutes. I waited 35 minutes and finally left. My time is limited and I felt like they should compensate me and the other students with a free class. There wasn't even an "I'm sorry".

Today I went to pay for a "drop in" which is $17 and the same front desk person with the $100 bill issue told me that it had been determined that I live out of state and I would have to pay $20 for class. The owner was standing behind the desk when I explained that I live 1/2 time in Vegas and 1/2 time in California. She explained to me that they have to be "consistent". I'm not sure where I've been inconsistent, but I chose to leave and I will not be returning.

It's a shame that this yoga studio has such "unyogic" business practices. I owned a yoga studio in California for 10 years. We had a great reputation and we treated our customers like gold. We felt that our studio was a service to the community and should reflect the philosophy of joining the mind, body and spirit. It was our goal to "be the change we wanted to see in the world" (Gandhi).

It's time for Las Vegas yoga students to realize that this is not the way a studio should be run. It's time for a new studio to be created where teachers & students feel a sense of peace and harmony and are treated with the utmost respect and kindness. It's sad to see people attend a studio just because there is no other competition. The good thing is that everything changes and this will too!

I love it, I love it, I love it! – Since my first yoga experience here, I got hooked on this place. I noticed that there is quite a wide variety of people who visit ----- longtime yoga students, newbies (like me), hard bodies, not so hard bodies (like me) - it's great! Trust me when I say there is something for everyone -- different yoga styles, basics to advanced classes. The teachers have incredible energy and those who play music have great mixes. I like to challenge myself so I've started taking stronger classes. I sweat EVERYTIME I go! My body feels AMAZING!

Only Authentic Yoga Studio in Vegas – I'm serious about my yoga and the teachers who are training it and the Yoga Sanctuary teachers are far, far superior to any of the other yoga instructors around town. I took classes at the hot yoga studios and the instructors were more like gym instructors or personal trainers. They may throw in a few words about "mind, body and spirit" but you can tell they're not serious yogis. They come with this gym mentality and it shows through. There are also pilates, dance and fitness studios here that toss in some yoga classes I guess as filler --- but why would someone want to practice yoga in a space not sincerely devoted to yoga?? I don't get it. I want to study in a real yoga studio. I think Yoga Sanctuary all shows their dedication by their guest yoga teachers. They bring in some of the best instructors on earth like Seane Corn, Ashley Turner and Annie Carpenter to teach special events. I'm grateful that they care enough to bring their students something more.

Believe the reviews! Yoga Sanctuary Rocks! – From the reviews I read online I thought this studio sounded too good to be true. Believe the reviews. The Yoga Sanctuary studios are absolute gems! Totally welcoming, great decor, and the best instructors in the area. I visited different yoga places in Las Vegas, but once I took classes here I have no interest in ever going to another studio. Plus they offer every style one could ever want to try - hot, flow, ashtanga, anusara and others. Yoga Sanctuary rocks!

Great Vibes ? Beautiful Spaces – Every time I take a class at Yoga Sanctuary I find myself thinking "That is exactly what I needed," when I didn't even know that I was missing something or in need of something to begin with. Their classes are so liberating and leave you glowing inside and out. The studios are GORGEOUS and the teachers are top notch. They bring a lot of fun and lightness to the practice. If you are looking to get into yoga this is a great place to do it. They are ideal for a beginner or the super yoga master because their classes cover the gamut from easy/relaxing to sweaty/challenging. I've been to a number of places in Vegas that claim to be yoga studios and none compare to Yoga Sanctuary. I definitely recommend YS.

The Best Yoga Teachers in Las Vegas – I studied yoga at I believe every fitness club and yoga studio in this city and to me it?s quite simple. Yoga Sanctuary has the best yoga centers with the best instructors, bar none. Every teacher is inspiring and well-trained. Whatever type of yoga you want to practice, you?re sure to find classes here. They do exactly what they set out to do ? give you skillful instructors who teach every imaginable yoga style to all levels. Beginning yoga classes to advanced, gentle to vigorous, there?s something for everybody at their studios. With their package discounts they also make yoga affordable to all in the community no matter your income. Thank God their classrooms are big because their classes are very popular. It?s doesn?t hurt that the studios are also beautiful and serene spaces. They also offer some very cool workshops and guest speakers on the weekends. If you goal is fitness-related or stress reduction, roll out your yoga mat and you'll find the freedom to expand, evolve, and become your best.

Absolutely Adore Yoga Sanctuary – Oh my god I love this studio. Tried pretty much every yoga studio in this city before I landed here and this is by far my favorite. The teachers are amazing, there is a wide variety of challenging and easier classes, plus there is always a warm, friendly energy. You leave just feeling so much better than when you walked in the door. Great staff and vibe. I always feel connected when I?m at the studio and as a bonus I have made some very dear friends. Another nice bonus is all the class packages you can choose from. Whatever my needs or budget there is something that works for me. Besides the classes, check out their special events and workshops. (I just learned that Seane Corn -- THE FAMOUS YOGA TEACHER SEANE CORN -- is coming in December! Can?t wait!) Would totally recommend Yoga Sanctuary to everyone, in fact, I constantly do!
