Qua Baths & Spa at Caesars Palace Expands Destination Spa Offerings With Addition of Yoga and Water Qi Gong Classes

Luxury Las Vegas Spa Focuses on Wellness for the Mind, Body and Soul

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - June 23, 2010) -  Award-winning Qua Baths & Spa at Caesars Palace is proud to bring spirituality, meditation and relaxation to the famed Las Vegas Strip with the addition of both yoga and water Qi Gong classes. Since opening in 2006, Qua Baths & Spa has focused on total wellness -- melding principles of Western world relaxation and Eastern world philosophies of healing. Yoga and water Qi Gong are an expansion of that vision.

"We find that our clientele is coming to Las Vegas for a total wellness experience, to leave a more relaxed and balanced person than when they came," said Chrystal King, director of Qua Baths & Spa. "We have many guests who come for a single service, however the trend at Qua is leaning toward a full day of relaxation -- a massage, chakra balancing, hypnotherapy and then close the day with yoga."

Led by yoga master Swami Ramananda, Qua's yoga practices are held weekly in the newly opened "Tranquility" yoga center in Caesars Palace. With more than 40 years experience teaching yoga, Ramananda's practices strongly focus on rhythmic breathing and guided meditation. 

Ramananda also leads Qua's water Qi Gong classes, which are hosted on a weekly basis in the serene, open-air Bacchus pool. The pool deck overlooks the resort's newly expanded Garden of the Gods swimming oasis, creating a relaxing escape from daily stresses. Qi Gong is a meditative practice that uses slow graceful movements and controlled breathing techniques to promote circulation and enhance overall wellness.

Qua Baths & Spas hosts yoga each Wednesday at 6:00 p.m. in the Tranquility yoga center, located in the Color Boutique, along Appian Way. Water Qi Gong is hosted each Saturday at 2:00 p.m. in the Bacchus pool in the Garden of the Gods pool oasis. Participation in Caesars Palace yoga and water Qi Gong classes is priced at $15 per person for each class; each class may be paired with fitness facility access for $35. Guests may experience a class and have access to the fitness room, plus the spa's Roman Baths, therapy pools, steam sauna and Arctic Ice Room for $55.
