Yoga for everyone

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

More meditation into everyday life, the little Street-yogis in Berlin are encouraging this in a really charming way. The idea for Street Yogis comes from Joseph Foos, a 55 year old joga instructor, inspired by the project “Little People” of the London street artist Slinkachu. What is special about the street-yogis, is that although they stand on a public streets, most people do not see them. But once you have spotted one, the next will come easier and with a satisfaction. Joseph is explaining that every yoga position is called a asana and the little men made out of cork, kebab stick and of course a lot of strong glue shows different asanas. Many of the yogis are gone because of weather and wind but also unfortenly turists are taking them home as souvenirs, up till now Joseph has done over 350 pieces.

The wet and dead collection

They call it the wet collection and right so, there is 80 tonnes of ethanol. After three years of reconstruction it is from some time now open to the public.

It is high level research collection that is used by scientists even nowadays.  Except the wet collection there is an stuffed example of every animal ever walked the earth, really neat!

And if you have curious children this is the place to take them!
