New Year’s Resolution: Get Fit, 3 Sports Around Retiro Park!

In my 2015 wishlist I have been very specific about increasing my sports and yoga practices, you know what they say: “mens sana in corpore sano”. But to be fair, it is tricky to start the year off on the right foot because of the cold season. It stops many of us from accomplishing this very popular goal; getting fit. However, Madrid offers new healthy and cool sports on regular basis, where the cold is not an issue. So here three suggestions involving the Retiro Park!
  1. Back to my wishlist: Yoga. My first goal was trying out a new yoga center, and luckily came across a brand new one in Town, Zentro Unico Yoga. Mercedes, the owner, has another center in Barcelona. She offers very clean, spacious room with high ceilings, great teachers and a great atmosphere, not to mention, it is very close to the Retiro in Claudio Coello st number 5. Here, you can find many different yoga related activities from Vinyasa to Pilates, mindfulness and even prenatal yoga. This month they have a special offer and the subscription is for free. Recommended, I am absolutely addicted to this place!  
  2. Moving on and introducing goal number two, I wanted to find something original, something that many other cities would have trouble offering, and to my surprise, I found it: Kayaking, in one of the most amazing ponds, found in the Retiro park… It is not as popular as the little boats for tourists on weekends, therefore perfect for people who enjoy being quiet and concentrated in their sport. 
  3. And last but not least, Goal number three: Rollerblading. One of those fun sports where there is no age limit to try for the first time, never too late! Madrid patina, offers different options that adjusts to every pocket and budget, from collective to individual lessons, or just rent the rollerblades and get no lessons. Oh! and it is compulsory to bring a helmet, otherwise you won’t get the lesson. It is perfect for this cold days, so why not try?

Acuerdate de tus propósitos para el año nuevo… !hacer deporte!
Para 2015 tengo decidido hacer más y mejor deporte! Ya sabemos todos: "Mens sana in corpore sano". Aunque es verdad que con este frío apetece poco ponerse hacer deporte. En este post, os proponemos tres actividades cerca del Retiro que os harán saltar de la cama, sin importar el frio.
  1. Yoga: He descubierto el sitio perfecto para la práctica de yoga: Centro Unico de Yoga. Mercedes, la dueña ya cuenta con otro centro en Barcelona y es un sitio muy especial, con techos altos, espacios y ladrillo visto. Además los profesores son muy buenos y hay diferentes disciplinas: vinyasa, yoga para embarazadas, pilates y hasta el muy de moda mindfulness. Además este mes, la matricula es gratis, yo estoy totalmente enganchada!
  2. Kayak: En pocas capitales se podrá ofrecer esta actividad y menos en el estanque más especial de Madrid, el del Retiro. En dos horas y por 30 € tendrás la experiencia de tranquilidad y paz que no se encuentra el fin de semana con todas las barquitas de turistas.
  3. Patinaje: Por último, y para entrar bien en calor os recomendamos probar una clase de patinaje en Madrid Patina, da igual tu edad y tu experiencia, sólo es necesario el casco! Además si quieres puedes alquilarles los patines. Y perfecto para entrar en calor.
