With the start of the new year is always the perfect time to find new ways of exercising and focusing in a kind of sport or activity that really suits you and that makes looking after yourself not so hard.Inbody is a series of dance movements that searches for a space to open the door to something new. It’s a series of steps that mix dance, movement, body and breathing in order to find the balance between, body, energy and the universe.

This class will be run by Georgina Espinosa, actress, dancer and therapist whose style comes from the study of different corporal techniques, travels and music from different cultures.

NICE PEOPLE BB

Now you are hungry and for sure need some dinner not too far from the drinks place (we all know it´s winter and you are not very happy to be commuting around the city). Don´t you worry my friend, we have a solution for everything (and it is not Mc Donald’s)!I had to ask my friend Audric who is a food expert in Barcelona, and he is French, so he is quite demanding with his food. One of the best options is this burger place where they only use ox meat and freshly baked bread. I was taking a look of the menu and looks omg, why do I always write the agenda when I am hungry!

Decoration is pretty cool as well so is the perfect closing for a fancy night 😉
