I photographed urban yoga at Europe’s greenest hotel

Boutique Hotels are designed for a young generation and turn a simple stay into something unique. Why not try to do some yoga in their facilities?

I love Boutique Hotels, they are designed for a young generation and turn a simple stay into something unique. During my stay in Lisbon, I decided to go for one of these hotels and tried the Inspira Santa Marta. However, the Inspira hotel is not a normal boutique hotel.

This award-winning hotel has won prices for sustainability and social responsibility such as the Sustainable Development Award, Green Hotel of the Year and National Geographic´s World Legacy Award as Earth Changer, and is therefore the perfect example of a company going green and thinking ahead.

We thought that a hotel with such an interesting policy deserves to be documented from a unique perspective, so we decided to capture moments of the typical hotel guest experience in some beautiful yoga-inspired photographs.

To be honest, it is incredible what this hotel is doing for our planet and among the many hotels and restaurants advertising their sustainability, I think this is one of the few places that really makes a difference every day.
