Now you can practice your downward dog pose on the Las Vegas High Roller

There are many reasons to go to Las Vegas, and it’s a town that suits daredevils, retro enthusiasts, concert lovers and foodies as well as those looking to party and gamble. But one thing that Sin City has never been that hot on (perhaps because of the dead desert heat) is exercise. However that’s all about to change as the High Roller Ferris Wheel at The Linq is now hosting daily, one-hour yoga sessions with the Strip as a backdrop.

The High Roller is the world’s tallest observation Ferris wheel, similar to the London Eye. Each spherical cabin holds up to 40 people, but for this unique yoga session, there’ll be far fewer people on board. It takes 30 minutes to complete a rotation, but for this hour-long session, guests will get to go around twice.

Once in the pod, participants put on headphones to allow them to be guided in their flow, meaning they can take in the views as they pose. Eager yogis must book at least a day in advance. Classes cost US$75 per person during the day, with a sunset class (times vary) costing $85. Classes are for four to six people. You can also have a private session for $250, or enjoy yoga as a couple for $300.
