YUNCH: Yoga and Brunch

Sundays can often be a bit depressing. ‘Sunday blues’ as I often call it. What better way to shake them off than to join a Yunch morning.

What is Yunch? It’s simple: Yoga and Brunch. Once again the villa in Figari was the perfect venue. Herbal teas and fresh juices were served before the class got started.

Morning classes were held on the terrace, a little bit sheltered from the wind and just the right amount of sunlight coming through. Soft tunes playing in the background while everyone enjoyed a dynamic 60min Yoga practice. Working off any lingering hangovers, stiff muscles and working up an appetite for the feast that Lara was preparing.

The great thing about a Sunday mid morning class is that you can steal a little bit of extra time in your Savasana. With nowhere to be after class except at the outside table, you can reward yourself with a longer resting ‘corpse’ pose at the end of your Yoga practice.

Deeply relaxed, rejuvenated and aligned, brunch is served!

The smells of freshly roasted coffee brewing, fresh fruit platters and something particularly delicious coming from the oven had everyone salivating.

Too start, fresh fruit platters made up of berries, melon, mangoes and nectarines with a hint of chilli. Yoghurt parfaits with granola and fresh summer berries, not too mention smoked trout avo and cucumber platters. Freshly prepared and made with love, the way every meal should be!

 

A variety of different baguettes, whole wheat breads for cheese, chestnut spread, honey and jams.

A bottle of wine may have snuck its way onto the table. But why not? Everything in moderation and unwinding means enjoying all the finer things in life!

Just when we thought the feast was over, Lara had presented omelettes to the table, light and fluffy with courgette, mushroom and goats cheese filling. Mouth watering and so tasty! Everyone went back for more.

Corsica has a unique way of reconnecting you to nature, surrounded by so much beauty, be it mountains, countryside or the ocean. You automatically start to unwind, relax, restore and rejuvenate.

This experience is even more intensified by daily Yoga practice, healthy food made with love and the company of like minded people. No matter where in the world they come from.
