A degree in Nutrition, a strong interest in natural health and a passion for food urged Raw Conscious Eatery owner Kendall Trigg to open the Bay breakfast & brunch spot in late 2015. Tucked away from the hustle and bustle of Jetty Rd, you’ll find Raw down the Chapel St laneway. Known for their house-made, natural smoothie bowls (not the pre-made frozen pack type!), you’ll find it hard to choose with options such as Acai, Salted Caramel and Peanut Butter. Make sure you head in early to get a taste of their best-selling house made almond milk. Kendall says they use more almond milk than any other milk on the menu, and Raw couldn’t keep up with its production without the help from her family. “Our philosophy is to create a space that people feel welcome to share a passion for health and wellbeing, indulge in guilt-free foods and desserts, and be a part of an environment where you can smile at strangers and feel part of a community.”

Stretch and unwind by the beach inside Coast Yoga’s new Sussex St studio. After 23 years in various locations along the Jetty Rd strip, Coast Yoga have just moved into a beautifully renovated warehouse hidden down a laneway in the heart of Glenelg. Director, Vanessa Shribman, says, “it’s quiet inside with a cavernous cathedral like roof giving an enormous sense of spaciousness”. Picture an entrance with wooden floorboards that opens into the carpeted studio dressed with hand-painted mandalas and splashes of burnt orange. Practising Iyengar yoga, Coast Yoga’s classes are dynamic and alignment-based with a strong focus on strength, stamina and flexibility. Vanessa adds that “Coast Yoga feels like a community – it is friendly and welcoming to all.”
