Breathing in yoga before the Las Vegas half-marathon — PHOTOS

The Strip is not exactly one of the most calming places to be in the world.

But it was for an hour on Sunday.

About 100 people gathered for the rare opportunity to practice yoga on Las Vegas Boulevard while it was shut down for the Rock ‘n’ Roll Running Series. The event, which featured exclusive yoga mats, was sold out and sponsored by Lululemon.

There was a festive atmosphere on the Strip, where 21,000 runners and walkers competed in the half-marathon and 10-kilometer races. Both events started at New York-New York and finished at the Bellagio.
