Still recovering from our wild friday night, here we are, stranded on the couch trying to find the words to describe our sunday morning ritual. Yes thats right, its sunday morning and we are still tired from friday night (…we have fatigue problems…)

For us, sunday mornings are dedicated to our 90 minute yoga practice at the One Hot Yoga studio in South Yarra. You heard right, we prefer spending our mornings in downward facing dog on our mats rather than in bed, like a normal person.

Today’s post won’t just be about Toorak’s Townhouse cafe, we’d like to briefly share a bit about our love for yoga. We stumbled across one hot yoga about 4 months ago when we were searching for the right studio to practice. One hot yoga fit us perfectly with its inspirational teachers, beautiful architecture and of course, their refreshing body wash (it just smells too good!).

With it’s temperature set at 37 degrees, studio one is the room for their slow hot flow. Studio two (where we were this morning), is built for their power flow, set at around 27 degrees. For us, we opt for the slow hot flow during the week and weekends, we usually dedicate to power flow.

It is rather difficult to find the words to describe why we love yoga so dearly, it’s one of those things that you have to try for yourself. But what we can assure you, a regular yoga practice will leave you feeling calm, strong, balanced and bendy. 

Anyway, lets get onto the topic of food.

Townhouse, located in Toorak village, is only a few hundred metres from the yoga studio, making it the ideal place for a post yoga nourishing feed.

Townhouse has that feeling of freshness reflected from its white interiors and open front window, allowing for maximum natural light. It’s this light that ultimately gives this cafe a sense of happiness. Oh and not to mention, their gorgeously welcoming staff, always with a smile on their diles.

This morning, after a gruelling yoga session, we decided on our usual of poached eggs on dark rye with a side of avocado and smoked salmon. Bliss!

Every visit, without fail, our eggs are perfectly poached, our avocado perfectly sliced and our smoked salmon is perfectly fresh. Literally. They definitely set the bar high.

So, to all the one hot yogis out their (and everyone else of course), head over to Townhouse and make them your local.
