Chitta Vritti Nirodha
An oasis in the heart of Barcelona
You will not believe that are in the center of Barcelona, the minute you step into the yoga studio the silence and the calm encompass you. The yoga room looks out on to a garden patio with lots of light and serenity. The room is divided into 3 spaces allowing for an intimate private feeling while practicing with a group of people.
In 2002 Lucia started the Hot Yoga revolution in Spain and we remain convinced that Bikram Yoga is the most universal, effective, restorative and accessible yoga system at all levels. However, we don’t just offer Hot Yoga but a whole body, mind and heart transformation. All classes are designed or chosen for their universal capability to transform. Whether it is Compassion cultivation, Bikram Yoga, a detox program, or wellness retreat you will experience a fresh, new outlook on life. And FUN. We know the importance that laughing and having fun can have while going out of your comfort zone.

Design your life
When asked what this studio is about one word comes to mind, transformation. We have found that if you try to fix or change yourself you will be back where you started, unsatisfied and searching for change. Our approach to health and wellbeing is based on universal principals that have been tried, tested and are ever adapting. We work from a particularly important principle: there is nothing wrong with you, there is nothing broken, you just need to look inside and believe that everything you need is already there. Our school and teachings are available to everyone. We are peaceful urban warriors that are working on being freed from suffering and living in abiding equanimity. If you want us to help guide you on the path don’t hesitate to call.
Bikram Yoga is more than Hot Yoga! There is nothing better than a Bikram Yoga class at 40ºc to squeeze out all the toxins, body pain and stress. We believe that Bikram Yoga is one of the most universal, efficient, safest, and complete Hatha Yoga series that is accessible to all levels. “You are never too old, broken or sick to start again.” 60, 75 and 90 minute classes.
A 60-minute class without heat for all levels. If you have pelvic, hip or knee pain and you want to improve your strength and flexibility, this class is for you. Through various yoga postures, ballet bar training, and supported inversions you will challenge yourself in a non-striving, safe, and fun way. For those that think handstands or backbends at 50 years old or any age are impossible, you will be amazed! NOT JUST FOR WOMEN.
Yin yoga is a slower practice where postures are held for longer. It works on the deep, dense connective tissues and joints in the body. Yin is cool, slow, passive, downward, and inward moving. In contrast, Bikram Yoga (the Yang) is a more active practice that works on the muscles and blood flow, building strength, stamina and flexibility. Yang is more active, fiery, upward and outward moving.
Divina Yo is our multidisciplinary menopause program that brings together all the pieces necessary for women to realize that this time of change is an important stage in our lives when we become fully realized as a woman. You do not have to confront it alone, in silence or without grace. It is empowering time when you connect with the divine nature that resides inside of you. Check out our solutions.
Meditation is about creating a space, a breath, a pause before one gets carried away by thoughts, habits, and emotions which are the basis of our discomfort, stress, anxiety and dissatisfaction. From this pause one can learn to take a more complete view of life and reality.

Compassion Cultivation Training - 13.05 – 1.07
A few weeks ago we started our first Compassion Cultivation Training (CCT) It is an 8-week program designed to inspire, awake, connect, feel, recognize the innate capacity that all humans have for compassion; not just for others but for one’s self. It is a courageous journey, as Emilia Earhart put:
“Courage is the price that life exacts for granting peace, the soul that knows it not, knows no release from little things.”
The participants have been indeed courageous, investigating, sitting with, probing, opening to all that they thought they knew or did not know. We begin first with Mindfulness. This first step is simple in theory but difficult in practice. Once one begins to realize that there is not such a clear awareness of self-concepts, beliefs, feelings or even do I really like soy milk, the process just opens. It is like breaking the gates of a dam, woosh. And of course, the body, how does these sensations, thoughts, emotions feel in the body? We are lucky to be able to take this into the yoga room and start to integrate the whole process. We are now in the 3rd step of the process of Loving kindness and self-compassion. We have begun to open to the possibility to accept and be ok with all parts of ourselves, the light and the shadows. I must thank everyone participating, it is absolutely wonderful to feel and see this all evolving.
