The Barcelona Urban Yoga Centre was built in a big and beautiful modernistic house in the heart of Barcelona. The centre is located in a nice and quiet street, yet minutes’ walk away from the central gothic neighbourhood and a 10 minute walk away to the beach of Barcelona. The building is one of the catalogued examples of the modernistic movement (Gaudi’s movement) and was built in the year 1890.
The building and the house has been conserved with all its magic features such as: Nolla colourful flooring, high and decorated ceilings, long and airy corridors, the iron works of the back facade and a smart distribution of the rooms allowing all of them to have access to outdoor spaces, such as internal patios or balconies. The building has the 1st elevator installed in the city, also dated 1890, a magnificent example of woodwork and engineering for old high class housing. The centre can accommodate up to 12 guests at a time.
The house has an airy yoga space with a chimney and a long wall to practice. They kept some of the beautiful old features adding a modernistic touch. There is also the amazing Rooftop located at the top of the building, a unique space equipped with changing rooms and amazing outdoor showers, to practice Yoga whilst enjoying a great view , the sunrise and the sunset overlooking the city.
From the Barcelona airport, you can take the airbus which has a frequency of every 10 minutes and runs from both terminals. Once in the Plaça, walk down the famous street of Las Ramblas and turn right after 5 minutes into Carme Street. Find number 40, and that is Barcelona Urban Yoga Center.
