Enjoy Yoga in the Budapest Sun

Budapest - Spice of europe

Budapest
Greater Budapest

One of the many appealing sides to Budapest, is going outdoors to appreciate the scenery and the ambiance. The city also gives you options to do just that without missing your normal yoga class, or perhaps to give it a try yourself for the first time.

The Aria luxury boutique hotel’s roof terrace is a place to enjoy a drink at night, but in the daytime during the weekends it is covered with yoga mats. The Harmony Rooftop Ashtanga Yoga direction reflects a more rule-oriented approach and introduces ashtanga, a more physically challenging school of the art.

 

The great meadow on Margaret Island (Margitsziget) is just as good a spot for a picnic as it is for a yoga class in the fresh air and amid the chirping birds. Available classes include ashtanga, jin and vinyasa flow, for beginners as well as experts. Classes are provided on a pay-as-you-see-fit basis.

Pontoon is a hip new bar alongside the Danube that will also double as a yoga studio during the day. The first vinyasa flow session targeted at those not afraid of a physical challenge will be conducted to music from a live DJ set.

 

Nine floors above ground level, 360 Bar’s rooftop yoga offers a special kind of tranquility. Participants can try the more taxing vinyasa flow, but beginners are also welcome, and will get special instructions.

 

The Kopaszi dam serves as the venue for trying out a special blend of hatha yoga and Chinese martial arts, which together form Avala. It is focused on a much less pose-oriented, more intuitive approach. Classes are available a couple of times a week on a pay-as-you-see-fit basis.
