FESTIVALS ARE GREAT. AND GERMANY KNOWS HOW TO DO THEM PROPERLY. BUT AFTER DAYS OF THE MUD, INSOMNIA, HANGOVERS AND WONDERING AROUND LIKE BILLY NO MATES FOR HOURS AFTER LOSING OUR FRIENDS IN THE CROWD WE ALWAYS THINK IT WOULD BE NICE TO HAVE A HEALTHY ALTERNATIVE. AND NOW WE'VE FOUND IT FOR YOU...
WHEN: 11th August 2018 for the whole day. The first class kicks off at 10:00am and the last one finishes at 18:15pm.
WHERE: Hosted at ARENA club (Eichenstraße 4, 12435 Berlin). Enjoy the view right on the Spree and the outdoor pool (the Badeschiff). It's also right next to Club de Visionaere (if the classes haven't worn you out by the end of the day you know where to go...).
S Bahn: S 9 | S Treptower Park (7 minute walk to the entrance)
Bus: Line 248 | From AlexanderPlatz and get off at Tamara-Danz-Str. (16 minute walk to the entrance)
THE DEAL: The latest edition of SWEATLIFE by lululemon comes to Berlin again. A full day that brings together some of the best studios, instructors and yogis in the city, offering non-stop classes, yoga flows and workshops. Expect to see city favourites like Becycle, ride.bln, CROSSFIT AORTA, WOD UP Berlin, Yoga Suplign and Hot Pod Yoga. Amongst other leading teachers, one of our favourites Steph Jaksch will be taking guests through a deep house yoga flow and Annie Clarke otherwise know as mind body bowl from the UK will lead a vinyasa practice focusing on creating space.
THE FOOD: Healthy snacks are available but best to bring your own to make sure you stay properly fuelled for all those work-outs!
THE PRICE: You need to book your ticket in advance from either the lululemon or Arena website. The standard ticket option is great value; it costs €20 and gets you one studio class, one sweat class, unlimited yoga and talks. Your other option is the Sweatlife essentials day pass. For €98 you get the same deal as the basic entrance fee plus either a pair of the Speed Wunder Tights for the ladies or guys get a pair of Pace Breaker shorts. Worth it? We think not (nothing "essential" about it?!). Be savvy; stick to the €20 pass and keep an eye out for the next lulu sale to go shopping!
BEST FOR: Efficiency; you get to experience the city's best studios, classes and instructors all in a day. Plus sweat-working is one of our favourite ways to mingle and meet new friends.
