Yoga at Pálacio Belmonte in Lisbon - a unique experience!

Published 08.10.2015

For me yoga is a great way to keep in shape (in combination with regular gym workouts). I am far from being a "yogi" or an ascetic but I love to practise my "asanas" (excercises) three times a week, sometimes with a trainer (guess what, he is not the tiny ascetic you may have in mind but a muscular professional dancer and a very happy and balanced guy). Yoga is great to improve your flexibility and it reminds you to breathe well (don't we all run out of breath sometimes?).

In August I had the great pleasure of practising with Eduardo, a Portuguese yoga trainer at the outstanding Pálacio Belmonte in Lisbon. What a great place to forget about the noise of this world! And Maria, the director of this high-end guest palace, also joined us for a few asanas. Should you ever plan to stay at this guest palace in the middle of the historic Alfama neighbourhood you can book a yoga lesson, by the way - highly recommendable!

Here are our images taken by Gonçalo Barriga - enjoy!
