Spirit Yoga Mitte + Father Carpenter
THE DREAM-TEAM SATURDAY MORNING YOGA + BRUNCH. NOTHING ELSE TO ADD.
START: Spirit Yoga Mitte, Rosenthaler Str. 36, Aufgang, 10178 Berlin.
FINISH: Father Carpenter, Münzstraße 21, 10178 Berlin.
U - BAHN: Weinmeisterstraße.
THE WORKOUT: Level II Yoga flow class at 10am. If you're still getting to grips with your practise then the Level I class at 11:00am might be the one to go for. Expect a dynamic vinyasa flow sequence and then bask in peaceful Savasana. They also have massage and a Sauna - double win.
THE FOOD: Father Carpenter has the potential to get dangerous for your wallet (everything is so god-damn good). We had their latest Summer bowl of tapenade toast, roasted eggplant & zucchini, white beans and vegan aioli with tomato, red pepper & chia seed compote. It went down far too quickly. Avocado on Sourdough with extra poached eggs - the sluttiest dish on Instagram but with good reason is also a firm favourite here. An additional salad and sprinkling of black sesame seeds and chia was a nice touch. They also have poached eggs on toast and then you can add extras (including avo) but we were advised that ordering this way round the portion would be smaller. Good quality sourdough really makes a difference at brunch and here the bread is delicious. If you've still got room, order a round of the banana bread with homemade jam and nut butter because its banging (and pretty dense). The coffee is also delicious, deep and roasted in flavour and made so perfectly we would come back just for the flat white.
THE PRICE: Spirit: Newcomers pay €25 for three classes. A single class is €23. Classes taught by new teacher are €12. Unlimited membership is €95 (and there are three studios you can visit across Berlin). It is also on Urban Sports Club. Father Carpenter: Flat white is €3.40. Avocado on Sourdough and Summer Bowl are both €9.7.
BEST FOR: Starting your weekend right. Plus you're then next to all the shops for a Saturday browse.
