Urban Yoga Retreat in Mitte, Berlin, Germany

After a long hiatus, I continue my series on how to create a rejuvenating yoga retreat weekend at home in the middle of Berlin. Previously, I shared my favorite places in Kreuzberg and Neukölln. This time, I’m showing my favorite places in Mitte.

The idea is that you don’t need to travel far away to create a safe space to connect with yourself. Go to a yoga workshop or a weekend of classes at a local Berlin yoga studio and then treat yourself to :

♥ Swimming and sweating

at Stadtbad Mitte

♥ Journaling

at the German – Austrian bakery Alpenstück for breakfast or lunch

♥ Walking

along the Spree River through Monbijou Park (whose name translates literally from the French to ‘my jewel’) to Museum Island / Museuminsel

♥ Indulging

at frozen yogurt paradise Wonderpots, guilt-free–unless you’re vegan.

In which case, I’m at a loss for ideas…maybe hot chocolate made with coconut milk at Eve and Adams (now closed)?

If you’ve been to the Mitte neighborhood of Berlin or live here, let me know the vegan treats in the area or if you have any other recommendations for me.

What else would you need to make an urban setting a yoga retreat?

Tell me in the comments section, please.
