After I’ve seen the show Zumanity from Cirque du Soleil in Las Vegas in February 2013, I just couldn’t get it out of my head since. One of my favourite artists is Dima Shine. When I learned that he has an alternative gym, I really wanted to see it some day.
Maybe it’s strange for some, but going to a fitness class was the top of my list for Las Vegas. Yes, shows are nice to watch, but at some point I began to wonder what it’s like to be doing those tricks on stage and how these artists train backstage. Some of the performers actually train or teach at Shine Fitness.
Actually, when I was packing for my trip to Las Vegas, I packed my yoga pants just for that. I wanted to be dressed appropriately for my visit, so I took a pair of my best pants by our local Vancouver brand called Public Myth.
Finally, my dream came true! So I registered online and came for a fun anti-gravity yoga class with Kelly. Here’s a photo of her doing one of the yoga positions that she teaches for more advanced classes.
Even though I was nervous and clumsy since it was my first time, she was very patient and reassuring. Now that I calmed down after all the new sensations, especially the upside down ones, I want to do it again.
I’ll be in Las Vegas again on August 6th, so if I am not pressed for time, I really hope to pay another visit. Maybe even I’ll get to see Dima himself, as they say that he comes in sometimes.
I want to express a huge thank you to Dima Shine and his business partner for opening Shine Fitness and to all the friendly staff who made my first visit so comfortable and welcoming.
