As the temperatures are starting gradually to climb, practicing yoga in an air-conditioned room isn’t always an option because let’s face it: yoga under the sun is so much more fun. Apparently it is not as easy to find really good outdoor yoga spots in Berlin as you would think, but I found my top 5 yoga-under-the-sun in Berlin.
Open Sky Yoga
Every Sunday at 9 am and Wednesday at 10 am Anna and Sünne give Open Sky Yoga classes by the pool of the Haubentaucher, before it opens its doors to the public. So don't forget your bikini and towel. Looking into the sky while holding a pose and breathing mindful while listening to the sound of water: 75 min of Vinyasa Yoga will give you the perfect start in the day.

Sunday Yoga in the Hasenheide
Sometimes my beloved yoga teacher Victoria gives Open Sky Yoga classes in the park Hasenheide - follow @swanmountainyoga on Instagram to stay tuned. The lesson starts at 11:00 am on Sunday. Enter in through the first entrance coming from Hermannplatz (opposite of the cafe Macha-Macha) and follow the arrows. Expect a badass class and lots of humor. Bring your own mat and pay by donation.

Yoga at Badeschiff
Every Tuesday and Thursday at 9 am you can start the day with Yoga at Badeschiff. Afterwards you can take a dip in a swimming pool that floats in the river, or grab a drink at the beach bar. They only have ten mats, so if you are running late, bring your own mat - just in case. The yoga class costs 7,50 Euro and the entrance for Badeschiff 5,50/3,00 Euro.
