We met Lisa, sports coach at Poses Studio, and tested one of her workouts. We came out exhausted but invigorated! Before leaving, we were able to ask him about the studio.

• The atmosphere of Poses in a few words?
« poses Yoga is first and foremost a peaceful and connected space in the heart of the Marais. The studio offers dynamic vinyasa yoga classes for all levels, in total immersion with music and light movements. The objective is to allow everyone to be able, for 50 minutes, to refocus on themselves while doing muscle strengthening. »

What is the spirit of the place? 
“Le Temple” as Lisa calls it is a very bright space, with minimalist decor inspired by the Californian summer. The studio also offers merch with tote bags, t-shirts or more classic sports items, which creates a spirit of community.

The objective is that beginners and experts alike feel comfortable and can fully benefit from the experience. poses.

The studio opened its doors a year ago, as the world finally reopened after a third lockdown. The courses offered are never identical, even if they are taught by the same coach and at the same time. This is therefore a real plus because we are sure to live a unique experience, and for regulars, certain that they will not be bored!

• The studio’s assets?
The real plus is the immersive experience created by the changes in light. From purple to orange to red, the colors of the neon lights change to the rhythm of the music. Far from the blinding lights of traditional gymnasiums, this subdued atmosphere allows you to better concentrate on yourself and forget about the world around you.

Each coach listens to their clients, and takes the time to explain the sequences in detail.

The studio also offers a wide range of care products, from the Doers of London brand with moisturizing cream, shower gel with peppery scents, cotton pads, hairdryer and towels available. It makes a real difference when you come out of the session exhausted!

You live in the Marais, what do you think of the neighborhood?
" I really like ! I lived in the four corners of Paris before landing here and this is surely the neighborhood in which I feel the best. I wander there like in a small village, I have my habits and my favorite shops.
In short, I like the atmosphere that emanates from the neighborhood, and I don't feel oppressed there.
For all these reasons, it was obvious to me that the Poses studio is also located in the Marais. »

The rates
The studio offers a discovery pack, at €29 for two sessions. A session lasts 50 minutes. Otherwise, the unit price of the session is €29, but there are many more advantageous options for those who want to fully embark on the adventure!

The best tattoo parlors in Marais

Tattooing, an age-old practice, has long been the prerogative of convicts, dock workers, the underworld and sailors. Although it has become democratized, now affecting all profiles and concerning one in five French people, including 16% women compared to 10% men, it still remains taboo due to its definitive and transgressive nature.
