Yoga instructor Dray Gardner and celebrity chef Giada De Laurentiis participate in “Yoga in the Sky” classes on the High Roller observation wheel.

 

Newlyweds Larry and Jen Rudolph are expanding their XCycle sports fitness operation in Boca Park. And it's not even a year old yet! Not only have they opened the next-door XenXen yoga fitness studio with renowned instructor Dray Gardner, but they’ve bought his Silent Savasana classes that have revolutionized yoga coast to coast with thousands of people taking part in his unique mass public experiences.

Larry, who manages Britney Spears and Steven Tyler amongst other pop stars, explained that Silent Savasana offers a distinctive, fun and inspiring version of yoga.

“Each class teaches balance, discipline, focus, determination and strength of mind,” he said at the studio’s opening. “During class, participants wear state-of-the-art LED headsets, which transmit the instructor’s voice and a carefully curated music playlist, allowing for a complete personal experience. Every other sound is blocked out.”

Silent Savasana specializes in large-scale events and unique experiences and was voted “Best Yoga/Pilates” in Las Vegas Review-Journal’s 2016 Best of Las Vegas Awards.Yoga classes available at Jen and Dray’s new XenXen studio in Boca Park this week are free through Sunday, Oct. 22.

Larry explained: “It’s a new home base where our Silent Savasana family can turn to between events for connectedness, healing and growth. It’s changing the lives of so many within our community. You can learn how to turn pain into power and wounds into wisdom.”

Incredibly 42-year-old Gardner discovered yoga in 2006 when a doctor told him it was the only option if he wanted to heal himself from chronic back pain coupled with nerve and tissue damage, a result of years of playing contact sports. It was so bad that he walked into his first yoga class using a cane, but he signed up for a 60-day challenge.

“My body was broken, I walked with a limp on a cane. The yoga saved me from the operating table. The doctors wanted me to have back surgery. Yoga allowed my mind and body to have brand-new experiences, teaching me balance, discipline, focus, determination, strength, flexibility and peace of mind through meditation,” Dray said. “It was in learning the science behind yoga and how the practice supports every muscle, tendon, joint and organ down to a cellular level. That truly hooked me — leading me to what has become my life’s work and dharma.”
