Last week, I indulged my German folk music loving soul. If you ask a German under 50 about German folk music (Schlager / Volksmusik) he will look at you pitiful and tell you something about bad taste of music, nursing homes and the Kastelruther Spatzen (look that one up for yourself… ). But deep inside every German hides a little hand clapping, schunkelnder devil, who only comes out once or twice a year, mostly when a beer tent, a bar on Mallorca or an après ski party is around.
Guys, I have to share this wonderful experience I had on Monday: For the first time, I tried yoga under the open sky. And I loved it! Yoga in a small, crowded room is nothing against it. Each monday at 6 pm there is this free yoga class, organized by “Sport im Park“. It’s taking place at Höhenpark Killesberg, more precisely in the Valley of the Roses (Tal der Rosen). You find this place quite easily: When leaving the U-Bahn station Killesberg, you see the big, twisted tower. The valley is just next to it.
Have you been at the Killesberg lately, where the Messe Stuttgart (Stuttgart Trade Fair) used to be? The scenery has changed a lot since they broke down the old buildings: The quarter Think K with lots of extravagant flats has been built. I went there last week during my lunch break with one of my colleagues.
