The wellness cafe located at Bala Yoga Sammamish opens this Friday, May 17th! Our intention for this delicious addition is not just to provide a place of nourishing beverages, but to create a space where you can connect more deeply to the Bala Yoga community. In addition to quality ingredients and thoughtfully made beverages, you’ll find here the invitation to slow down and savor the moment. We are thrilled to be able to offer you the intimate cafe experience to do so.
Read on to learn more about what exactly we’re creating for you & join us for our grand opening festivities this Friday.
In addition to your coffee based favorites we’ll be offering matcha lattes, golden milk and locally brewed kombucha. What makes this menu special are the boosts of superfood additions you can add to any hand crafted beverage.
Butter + MCT have made their way into the coffee cups of many recently. Did you know there are multiple potential health benefits to adding butter to your morning cup? In addition to adding a creamy texture, this surprising ingredient provides a boost in Omega 3 fats, Vitamin K and even prolongs that burst of energy caffeine provides. Keep in mind, these benefits are only found when you use grass-fed butter, not grain-fed butter. MCT Oil, which you can add to coffee, smoothies and salad dressings offers very similar benefits. In addition, MCT oil might assist in weight loss.
Philosophie products are a favorite at Bala Yoga! Sophie Jaffe created this line of products with the intention of making every food a super food so you don’t have to worry about getting all you need to feel nourished. Therefore, when you add Philosophie Green Dream protein powder to your matcha latte at our wellness cafe, you’re not only getting the protein boost you might need after you yoga class, but also a dose of rich super foods like spirulina, maca and chia seeds.
If you love adaptogens, then you’ve heard of Moon Juice. We’ll use these adaptogenic blends to add some plant magic to your favorite drink. Moon Juice has various blends dedicated to supporting you in the way you might need, from stress to sleep to beauty, you’ll find exactly what you need at the wellness cafe. Learn more about these super powders by checking out the Bala Blog post, Super Powders: Moon Juice Dusts to Super Power Your Life.
We look forward to creating you a a drink as creative and unique as you are.
