In the summer we don’t necessarily want to lock ourselves in the gym, so here are some ideas for outdoor sports this summer.

Free outdoor sports sessions in Paris.

It’s quite common for many Parisians to make sporting resolutions and join sports clubs in September after their holidays, but why not take advantage of the summer to try out some new disciplines. The town hall offers sessions led by professional instructors.

Paris Sport Dimanche

The City of Paris offers this summer (from June 28th to October 11th) every Sunday in 6 squares and parks of the city free sports lessons from 10am to 12pm. No pre-registration, you register on the spot.

Outdoor Yoga Classes

If you are more of a yoga fan, all summer long the Yoga Club Paris offers you outdoor classes at a more than friendly price (10€). You just have to register on their facebook page in the events section. Small teams of teachers who offer classes all over Paris,

…I had the chance to try a class with Anu in the Fields of Mars. She had chosen a really nice place and I had the Eiffel Tower in front of me and at 9am there were not many people there and it was really a privileged moment to do a class with the birds as an audience !!!











Open Swimingpool in Paris

Another sport and relaxation’ activity of the summer very appreciated is swimming.

Not all the Swimingpools have opened their doors yet. But some of the open-air pools, including my favourite Joséphine Baker, are open again.

The open-air pools are currently open:

Piscine Roger Le Gall : Paris 12

Piscine Jean Boiteux ex Reuilly : Paris 12

Piscine Joséphine Baker : Paris 13

Piscine de la Butte aux Cailles: Paris 13

Piscine Keller Paris 15

Piscine d’Auteuil: Paris 16

Espace Pailleron : Paris 19

Piscine Georges Vallerey: Paris 20

After all this sport it’s time to think about the pleasures of summer, the next article will be gourmet !
