7. Yoga-Festival Berlin 2011

The Berlin Yoga-Festival And Its Loving Purpose!

Summer has arrived! And there are tons of summer festivals, one day events and yoga retreats taking place across the world with the aim of creating communities, creating awareness and simply enjoying and sharing the joy of the summer. We are big fans of the Berlin Yoga-Festival as it is located in a very peaceful place in the outskirts of Berlin, and it is full of opportunities to relax as well as explore new types of yoga, practice meditation and be part of a beautiful community. This year the Yoga Festival in Berlin will be taking place for the 11th year in a row at the Cultural Park Kladow; it’s four (4) days long starting July 9 to July 12.
We were curious about the energy that was behind this event and reached out to the event creators to find out more about their intentions and their journey until the birth of this event.

What to Eat Before and During a Marathon

For short-distances such as 5k or 10k races, the need for nutrition and hydration during the run is not that great. You probably will be more comfortable just runnnig through the whole race and refueling afterwards with a non-alcoholic Hefeweizen and some recovery snacks.

Finding Your Balance

When people think about yoga a lot of times their stereotypes drift to different territories. A first take could be the meditation aspect – the fearful will list this most certainly. But meditation is what gets us centered and connected.   A second thought might be stretching. Lots and lots of stretching and contortioning that
