Zurich will always be my first love but that doesn’t mean I can’t have a wandering eye for the satellite towns that make the extra effort to flirt with me. Over the coming week, Baden will be having what is, possibly, the first...
First of all, a huge thank you to all the organizers and hosts who have brought to life this year's Roof Terrace Day in Basel, Bern, Geneva, Lausanne and Zurich – you are the best and most beautiful city children!
Then a small note to all visitors: You’ll find yourself in the private homes of people who have gone to great trouble. I know you’re all polite and well-raised Ronsters, so I’ll try not to turn into a Mama Ron and ask you to show some respect as you have your rooftop fun.
Then a warning! Since the weather forecast is quite unpredictable this weekend and there may be some changes to the program. The organizers will leave comments on my website if the program changes at short notice. I appreciate your understanding.
It’s best you go to bed now or maybe just stay up all night, because the Roof Terrace Day starts early. And at 5 am in Zweierstrasse 56 it starts with yoga. After your first stretches a relaxing Yogi tea will be offered, before continuing with Kundalini contortions. There will be meditation and mantras to close the day. I would suggest
registering to help them with the flow of people. And don’t forget to bring your own yoga mat. Aquarian Sadhana: 5 am – 7.30 am, Yogi Tea: 7.30 am – 9 am, Kundalini Yoga: 9.30 am to 11 am, Kundalini Yoga: 6.30 pm – 7.30 pm, Meditation and mantra chanting: 8 pm to 9.30 pm
