If your health and fitness goals include a regular yoga practice, Scottsdale’s resort and day spas can help you stay committed to the mat while you travel.

Fairmont Scottsdale Princess

Take your yoga practice to new heights with Aerial Yoga at Well & Being Spa at the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess. These out-of-the-yoga-box classes utilize fabric hammocks suspended from the ceiling to help you glide and release into each pose.

Boulders Resort

Greet the day with Sunrise Yoga at the Spa at the Boulders Resort, then take a soul-centering walk around the spa’s labyrinth or enjoy a private, guided meditation session.

Omni Scottsdale Resort & Spa at Montelucia

Goddess Yoga at Joya Spa at the Omni Scottsdale Resort & Spa at Montelucia is a sensual fusion of yoga and dynamic movement designed to awaken the divine kundalini energy in your lower chakras and allow the Prana (or life-force energy) to flow freely throughout your body.

The Westin Kierland

At Agave, the Arizona Spa, at The Westin Kierland, you can take Hatha, Vinyasa or Slow Flow yoga classes to get your stretch on. Agave also offers live cooking demonstrations using seasonal foods to help you nourish your body and mind.

Sanctuary Camelback Mountain Resort and Spa

Sanctuary Spa offers yoga options that include Morning Stretch, Hatha, Yin, Restorative and Sunset Yoga, which takes advantage of the amazing views from the resort’s perch on the side of Camelback Mountain.
