Yoga in Mauerpark started with a few friends doing yoga sessions together in a park in 2016. It quickly grew beyond that to sometimes 50 people showing up for class. Despite the numbers the intention is to keep the easy-going vibe of friends getting together outdoors or in a cosy studio with a local Berlin feel in the vicinity of Mauerpark during colder months.
The guide, Yulia, is certified with Stråla yoga from New York, a style based on the yogic form of vinyasa flow yoga and east asian philosophy of moving in the most efficient way. We practice a dynamic yoga style, in which the movement is gracefully aligned with breath, poses run smoothly one after another in a flow, reminding of a dance and which is a meditation in itself. At the same time it is a rigorous practice, often chosen by sportsmen like surfers and climbers to build up their strength and flexibility.
The classes are open to all levels, you are free to explore your comfort zone to a gentle guidance with a variety of options.
