From Mexico, a revolution is coming to the world of sport. It is called Síclo, and they have opened in Madrid in a very trendy neighbourhood, as they are.

inside Síclo

         In the street Fernando VI; 23 you can see the neon lights that invite you to enter a super white and illuminated space. But in reality, physical activity takes place in a dark room with nightclub lights, where 40 exercise bikes are waiting impatiently. Síclo opened in Mexico only 3 years ago and they already have a lot of stores all over the city. In fact, it is so successful that they have even asked for it at weddings!

Where the fun takes place!

Even if you don't like sport, I am convinced that you will love Síclo Madrid. Free trial classes are available until September, so I encourage you to book your class and try the Síclo experience.

Upavistha Konasana pose

Although it is not yet possible to say that the good weather has arrived, in our Mylittlemadridkids section we have a plan for your children outdoors: YOGA KIDS in English.

Uttanasana pose

From the age of two, children can begin to practice this form of sport that does so much good to the body and mind.

Cat pose

Among the benefits of yoga for children, we can find:
- Improving coordination and balance
- Enhancing self-esteem
- Learning to relax
- Raising concentration and awareness of a healthy way of life.

Cherie, a lovely Filipine kids yoga teacher  gave us a class last week at the Retiro Park The selected place could not have been better, as we did it surrounded by flowers from the Rose Garden. My baby just adored it and was very excited not only with yoga, but also with roses, fountain and ducks!

Namaste with kids and mother
The class is for children from 2 to 9 years old and consists of imitating animals with yoga postures, singing and speaking in English and after the class a little colouring.

Individual classes are 20€ for the first session and 30€ for groups of maximum 6 children, the cost of the first session is 50€ and the rest 60€.

For a discount of 5€ in the first class, do not hesitate to say that you are a follower of Mylittlemadrid.

Madrid for Kids.. some recommendations! Hairdresser and Baby swimming lessons

This post is dedicated to parents who have young children. We love to think that there is also a Madrid of special places for them.

It's always boring to go to the hairdresser, but what if instead of a conventional salon, your mother takes you to a magical salon? This super idea is located in the north of Madrid, by the Plaza del Perú and the children will find fantastic stars and cars where they can go through a good haircut and if they have lice... the solution also to that uncomfortable problem.

calle Bolivia 40 

Also, now that summer and the swimming season in Madrid are approaching, we suggest you take your baby or toddler to a very exclusive little pool where they will be taught to float so that they are not in danger. Although in Madrid, there are many schools of this type I recommend a swimming pool where the groups are only 4 babies and parents in the water with classes of 45 minutes. Attached photo, ¿guess which one is my baby?

Este post va dedicado a los padres que tienen niños pequeños. Nos encanta pensar que también hay un Madrid de sitios especiales para ellos.
Siempre es aburrido ir a la peluquería, pero que pasaría si en vez de una peluqueria convencional, ¿tu madre te lleva a una peluqueria mágica? Esta super idea se encuentra en el norte de Madrid, por la Plaza del Perú y los niños se encontrarán con estrellas y coches fantasticos donde pasar por un buen corte de pelo y si tienen piojos.. la solución también a ese incomodo problema.

Además ahora que se acerca el verano y la época de las piscinas en Madrid, os proponemos que llevéis a vuestro bebé o niño pequeño a una pequeña piscina muy exclusiva donde le enseñaran a flotar para que no corra peligro. Aunque en Madrid, hay muchas escuelas de este tipo te recomiendo una piscina donde los grupos son solo de 4 bebés y padres en el agua con clases de 45 minutos. Adjunto foto, ¿adivina cual es el mio?

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!

National Geographic store in Madrid - New Menu

national geographic party in madrid

Although the National Geographic Store is in Madrid since 2010, I had never visited it simply because I did not know about its existence. It was a nice surprise to be invited to the renewal presentation party that took place on Thursday. And even more surprising to realize that this huge space has nothing to envy to the London National Geographic Store, it is even better! Specially the restaurant and its new menu.

Sports at the Retiro - Rollerblading

The two main things about Madrid that I probably enjoy the best in my daily life are the light (already mentioned in the blog) and the Retiro Park!! Especially now that the rain and the cold temperatures have finally disappeared… it’s time to enjoy the Retiro!
And why not… instead of going to the gym go to the Retiro for a nice and sunny sporty experience!
My suggestions for sports at the Retiro will come in different posts. This week I recommend Rollerblading!

Bikram Yoga

Bikram Yoga is the most popular form of hot yoga; a series of yoga poses done in a heated room (40°C with a humidity of 40%). Bikram Choudhury invented it in the seventies claiming that blood circulation is affected very positively during its performance. 26 different Hatha yoga positions, repeated twice, you might find it hard the first week but soon you will feel improving shape and well being. In Madrid it is the new trend for exercising, the place I prefer being Birkam Yoga Center at the heart of Chueca district, calle Barquillo 38. You will end up sweating next to celebrities, it-girls and politicians.

Golf Course - Centro Nacional de Golf

Golf course 

Trying to play golf in Madrid can be frustrating. Such a good weather, many golf courses but such a huge demand!! My choice, not being member of a private club (which does not make it easier for green fees) is “Centro Nacional de Golf Emma Villacieros” c/Arroyo del Monte 5. It is conveniently close to the center of Madrid, in the Puerta de Hierro neighborhood, quite cheap and easily bookable through the internet. Aesthetically it is in the limit; they are improving it day by day, although vegetation is still scarce. For after-golf you have a nice and sunny restaurant overlooking the course, good quality and very cheap price.
