Clem Balfour founder of the Yoga Brunch Club, is on a mission to break down barriers and make yoga more accessible for everyone. Designed to give you the opportunity to pause, breathe, stretch, eat and connect with a new group of people who share similar interests. Yoga Brunch Club’s events combine a fun, energising yoga session with a three-course, sit-down feast in beautiful surroundings.
The idea came from a desire to create a space where people would never feel intimidated to enter a class, even if you are a complete novice to yoga. Both the yoga and brunch elements are equally important to the success of the day. Collaborating with hand-picked chefs to create exclusive menus for each event, using the freshest seasonal ingredients to create nourishing, memorable meals. I spent much of my childhood living abroad, so each brunch club showcases a different cuisine of flavours and dishes from all over the world.
Coming from an events background I have practiced yoga for over a decade now. In my twenty’s I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis (which is now thankfully ok remission). Yoga has been such a crucial part of my recovery and has helped me to build up strength and flexibility in my joints. I first trained in vinyasa flow in South India before coming back to London to continue practicing and teaching. I’m now based in the lovely city of Bristol where I teach and run the business.
The Yoga Brunch Club is designed to carve out some space and time in your week for you. Make the time to take a deep breathe, stretch out and let go of the working week, socialise, become part of a bigger community and share ideas and thoughts over a delicious feast.
