Louvre to host fitness classes for Paris 2024 Olympics

Recommended Posts


The famed Louvre Museum in Paris, home to the Mona Lisa, is adding an unexpected element to its offerings in the lead-up to the 2024 Olympic Games: fitness classes. Known for its vast collection of art and historical artifacts, the museum will now also serve as a unique venue for yoga and sports sessions, embracing the athletic spirit with a program dubbed “Run in the Louvre.”


Visitors will have the opportunity to participate in a variety of workouts—think dance, yoga, and cardio sessions—all while surrounded by the museum's iconic paintings and sculptures.


The workout sessions will take place in various prestigious areas of the museum, each chosen to enhance the specific activity. Imagine flowing through yoga poses in the serene Marly Courtyard, a reconstruction of the gardens where King Louis XIV once rested. Meanwhile, the Salle des Caryatides, a former royal ballroom adorned with elegant statues, will host dance sessions, drawing inspiration from the very space itself. Choreographer and dancer Mehdi Kerkouche, who helped orchestrate the events, shared his inspiration, saying, “I was completely inspired by each space in the museum.”


This program aligns with the Louvre’s recent exhibition, “Olympism. An Ancient Heritage, a Modern Invention,” which explores the historical roots and enduring legacy of the Olympic Games. Altogether, they add to the excitement of the first Olympic Games in France for 100 years, offering a unique way to experience the museum and celebrate the athletic spirit.
