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.

Close to Nature - El Encinar, Madrid North (Guest Posting)

First I’d like to thank My Little Madrid for giving me the opportunity to write about this part of Madrid, a Madrid just outside the busy and noisy inner city. We’re talking about the northern district, a residential neighbourhood thas is becoming a place for families to find peace and quiet.

When peace and quiet are paramount

Pole Dancing - a different way to get in shape

Pole Dance - My little Madrid
I have discovered a great way to get in shape and at the same time practice a sexy and original dance. It has been a great experience and I need to share this great discovery. It is called Pole Dance and is usually practiced by strippers. Yet, it is slowly becoming a fashionable trend and be sure it will be very surprising for your loved one!  The place: Flow Escuela de Baile y DanzaEn español abajo sigue leyendo.

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.
