Oh la lá yoga time

Yoga WallParis…just by thinking about it makes me sigh. There are so many wonders in The City of Light; beautiful buildings, amazing food and the glamour of parisiennes.

I´ve always thought that Paris is a city that has something to offer for every person and taste. In this case, the French capital offers a revolutionary way of keeping up with yoga lessons in the comfort of your own bedroom while visiting, ¿where? only at The Hidden Hotel.

Located at Rue de l’Arc de Triomphe and surrounded by a mystic ambience, The Hidden Hotel’s final purpose is for you to find pleasure in each of it´s secret delights away from the noisy avenues and the continuous rush of Parisian life.Hidden Hotel

As part of it´s green philosophy, the hotel has a secret “sanctuary” for every yogi: a yoga wall. Inside one of the “Exception” suits of the hotel, this Yoga Wall provides you with the possibility of doing your yoga session with a new concept by using adjustable bands, a harness and also a teacher to assist you in every asana.Yoga Wall

Now you know that when you´re in for yoga lessons abroad, you´ll always have Paris….

Defying Gravity

Yoga has been one of my favorite activities for almost 4 years now. It really helps me be in touch with my inner me, it soothes my mind and helps as a regular “fitness activity” as well.

I started as a Hatha Yoga fan, but lately, I´ve tried several kinds of yoga like: Jivamukti, Ashtanga, Iyengar and Vinyasa. All of them are very distinct since they focus on different aspects. It was on this never-ending adventure that I discovered my latest addiction: D-Gravity.

You might be wondering,  what kind of yoga is that?! I have to say, it´s one of my favorites. It´s a mixture between gymnastics, pilates, dance, acrobatics and yoga (kind of Cirque Du Soleil style). A hammock firmly hanged to the ceiling will let you define yourself and gravity with many posture possibilities.

The American dancer and gymnast, Christopher Harrison, created this yoga style with the intention to improve health, soothe stress, gain more flexibility and, of course, improve your body figure as it focuses on your abs, lower back, arms and butt.

I have to say this discipline really requires self-confidence, since there are moments you just have to let go yourself. For me, this has been a personal challenge in every class since every day I get to push myself a little harder and gain more confidence.

The exclusiveness for this yoga is held by DIR Fitness Club in Spain. I really urge you to practice it. You will be seized by an indescribable feeling of freedom.
