New ways to move, to get you out of your comfort zone | TOP 5

A large part of our New Year’s resolutions is about raising awareness of our ways of living. The most popular of these is the desire to lead an active lifestyle, but this often remains a wish without the right power of will. In this collection, we present a handful of unusual sporting opportunities that put physical activity in a new perspective. Healthy body, healthy mind!


Petra Yoga

Yoga in the air? Why not? One of the cornerstones of yoga is the discipline for both body and mind. Aerial Yoga and Aerial Yoga Trapeze require the total control of the human body in the freedom of the air, with the help of yoga instructor Petra Molnár. They also use the well-known asanas of floor yoga and introduce you to some really new poses that you can only do with the hammock and TRX.

It helps to reduce various spinal problems and strengthens our muscles. We can step out of the constricted range of motion of our everyday lives, bringing several positive physiological effects to our bodies.

Teqball

Teqball, developed in Hungary and recognized internationally, has changed the way we think about ball games. The company was born from the fruitful collaboration of three people: inventor Gábor Borsányi, in partnership with Viktor Huszár and György Gattyán. Teqball is a football-based sport played on a specially curved table called a Teq table.

Players aim to develop their technical skills, concentration and stamina. The sport went global in 2012: 5,000 players from over 100 countries have already tried it out. Teqball boasts 2,000 international associations, 122 established federations, and three world championships. Their mission is to one day officially have Teqball recognized as an Olympic sport.

Spartan Race

It is safe to say that the physiological effects of the modern age have made us more prone to laziness. Everyone knows the feeling of not wanting to do anything but kick back on the sofa. The Spartan Race helps us to break out of this feeling with its competitions and supportive community. They push our boundaries and take us back to the age of strength.

Their events range from obstacle course races to functional fitness challenges, to team-based endurance missions. By completing these grueling challenges, we can prove to ourselves that we are capable of anything.

At Gravity Boulder you can enjoy the sport on almost 1,300 square meters of different routes, including the Gravity Ninja.

Sup Life

The water sport standup paddleboarding (or SUP) is no longer a new concept in Hungary. You can often spot the its enthusiasts paddling on our lakes and rivers, but you can also find them in the heart of the capital, riding the waves of the Danube. The origins of stand-up paddling can be traced back to antiquity, when our ancestors were already taking advantage of this form of waterway transport, except for fishing and hunting. Nowadays, however, the emphasis is on enjoyment, and the sport is mostly practiced for exercise, recreation, and as a social activity. If you have an inflatable board, you can enjoy unlimited freedom with the Sup Life team!
