WHERE TO WORKOUT IN BERLIN
URBAN ART RUN
"Urban Art Run brings running and urban art together to inspire people to discover the art in their city while being active. Urban Art Runs are organized for various communities of runners in Berlin. They are designed for runners of all levels and backgrounds. Its really fun to run 5 - 10 km with short stops and to hear from founder Laurent Petit inspiring stories about the urban art „pieces“ on the walls of Berlin. There are a lot of routs in different parts of Berlin. Sports vs. creativity and education."
“Becycle is a very nice, modern, elegant and cozy boutique studio in Berlin - Mitte. They honor the mind - body - spirit connection and employ a holistic approach. Here you can find different classes: cycling, yoga, barre, pilates, and HIIT. It’s nice to visit this studio with a bit more time because just from being there you feel already balanced, healthy and beautiful. Especially HIIT and Barre workouts are the burn.”
"Jivamukti Yoga is a method of yoga that was created by David Life and Sharon Gannon in 1984, which reintegrates the physical, philosophical and spiritual aspects of Yoga. The Jivamukti method of Yoga is one of the nine internationally recognized styles of Hatha Yoga. It is very challenging and stimulates your body & soul. Jivamukti studio in Berlin Mitte feels like a different, better world. After visiting it you feel peaceful, connected and for sure you feel your whole body."
"This is a full - body cycling and in general a full-body workout on the bike where endurance and strength training by integrating upper body exercises are combined in intense 50 minutes. Your body changes a lot, your mind and core become much stronger (because this workout is really not the easiest). After every cycling class you feel completely energized, joyful, proud of yourself and motivated for the whole day."

SUPERFOOD & ORGANIC LIQUIDS
"This is a modern, very clean and cool cafe. They offer breakfasts like matcha yoghurt, fruits and granola as well as some bowls, smoothies, juices and sweets. Unfortunately their food - packaging is plastic. The taste of their coffee, breakfasts, drinks and sweets is good."
WHERE TO RE-ENERGIZE IN BERLIN
"My favorite spots and activities for re-energizing are treatments at Vabali Spa, hangouts by Rummelsburger Bucht and visits to the Spree Walk Eastside Gallery. There is nothing like taking long walks around Wannsee or strolling through the city in your own pace."
