Known for its beers, bread, sausages, football, and marvelous castles, among many other things, Germany is also famous for its insatiable thirst for the great outdoors and, more recently, for its love for yoga.

Furthermore, the country’s varied landscape, ranging from forested hills and mountains to agricultural lands and vast plains, cut by the Danube, Rhine, and Main river valleys, with Baltic Sea and North Sea coasts, makes the perfect background to hit the mat.
