Yoga in Berlin: Earthwalking Festival

When I started to do yoga in a random gym several years ago, I didn’t realize how lucky I was that this random gym employed what would become my favorite yoga teacher ever: Deborah Haaksman taught yoga in such a natural and never patronizing, yet holistic, energizing and inspiring way, I have not come to find someone like her. I didn’t even know the name of her style of yoga, just loved the way she explained and demonstrated the poses and breathing techniques, and induced this happiness inside of me whenever I finished her class. She’s not teaching regularly at the moment, but is working together with Sita Menon and Nicola Tröger to prepare an intense weekend to present her yoga teaching of Forrest Yoga, named after its creator Ana Forrest, and it is coming up soon: Earthwalking Festival is happening end of August and we’re giving away two day-passes…

Earthwalking Festival will take you on a journey to get to know or intensify Forrest Yoga in workshops by different teachers like Debbie, Sita and Nicola themselves, Brian Campbell and many more. With topics like resilience, Savasana, active feet and many more, it is not just another compilation of interesting but random events. It’s about relating and prospering congruently, finding what makes you feel good. See the schedule here and get updated on their Facebook page.

Explore how to be more in your body and less in your head: We’re giving away two day-passes for Sunday, August 30th, leave a comment here until Friday, 17:00, (with a working e-mail address) and keep your fingers crossed!

    The odds aren`t great to win – but I`ll try anyway. I`d love to go to this event, being a yoga lover myself (and I also randomly met a great yoga teacher at my gym – her name is Frauke Schroth, check out her page if you want >> http://fraukeschroth.com/ – and she does some great events, too, Night Dive Yoga for example!).

    I moved to Berlin last September and am still looking for a great yoga teacher. A relaxing day of yoga with an inspiring yogi sure sounds wonderful :-).

    “Self-taught” only takes us so far in this world. Months of doing yoga poses with countless internet yogis has shown me the movements, but not the mindfullness which I wish to experience from yoga. Perhaps this weekend could be just the pull I need to dive into a world I have yet to fully explore. Thank you for letting me know about this event.

    I´d love to take part….I´d love to experience Forrest Yoga at the Earthwalking Festival. It would help me with my meditation practice and be more in the present in my body and less in my head. Exactly what I need. With the opportunity to have wonderful people around. Heaven :-)Thanks for letting me know about this event!
