You are currently reading the free edition of this newsletter.

GROUND TO GROW
This café and yoga studio strikes a balance between vegan food and drink options (many of them gluten-free) and a full schedule of daily classes: Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Iyengar, Yin, Hatha Flow with some Restorative and Pilates thrown in.

KAH STUDIO AND COFFEE
Near the Canal Saint Martin, KAH is a combo coffee shop, fitness studio and, hidden behind a wall of mirrors, glowing space-age spa for massages and body treatments. Massive high fives for their “Drip 5” package which cleverly bundles 5 classes with 5 caffeinated beverages for 79€.
