An "Om"-azing Concept
Story: Cristy Miller
Yogis, take notice; there’s a new way to achieve mind-body balance without investing in a pricey yoga studio membership. St. Louis’ one-and-only raw cafe now offers donation based yoga classes to complement its wholesome food options. PuraVegan in the Central West End holds yoga sessions six days a week and allows participants to sign up and donate online or before their class. You pay as much or as little as you can afford—it’s that simple.
Already an established destination for delicious and fresh vegan and raw eats (think marinated kale salad, sunflower “burgers” and yellow squash noodle pasta), PuraVegan introduced the donation-based model earlier this year on the belief that true optimum health is achieved through a combination of diet and exercise. Veggies and yoga are a great place to start so no one should be turned away for lack of funds—good news for yogis on a budget or those looking to dabble in the ancient art. Classes are approximately one hour and are held next door to the cafe, Monday through Saturday.
