Paris is beautiful with its wide boulevards lined with quaint cafés, but city life can soon become stressful. One of the best ways to combat stress is to meditate, and joining a class is more fun. Whether you prefer to sit amongst fairy lights or swathes of draping vine, or enjoy the sounds of Himalayan gongs while sipping herbal tea, here’s everything you need to find out about which methods best suit you.
Centre Aquatique de Bois Colombes is a sports centre of about 2500 square miles offering sessions in Weight Training, Cardio training, and with the highlight being the 25-square-mile swimming pool. After going for a dip, you can either head to the spa to relax or you can sample one of their meditation classes. It’s located in the suburbs of Paris and so might not be as convenient to reach as other places on the list. However, it’s the only venue that offers swimming facilities as the prelude to a calming meditation class.
The best way to discover these classes is to buy the ZippyPass as it gives access to more than 200 studios and fitness clubs in Paris – an incredible selection. The website offers up-to-date timetables of classes, and given the lack of commitment, you can simply choose how often you want to make use of your great-value subscription.
