AMA, THE DIGESTIVE TOXIN
If your digestion becomes weak the food that you eat does not digest completely.
This semi-digested residue in your body is called Ama.
Ama is a toxin to the body and creates many diseases.

COCONUT GREEN SOUP WITH CELERY, KALE & GINGER
1 teaspoon whole cumin seeds
1 teaspoon whole coriander
1 teaspoon coconut oil
1 large or 2 small-medium shallots, diced (about ¾ cup diced shallot)
1 medium zucchini, chopped
1 bunch of celery, chopped (about 4 cups chopped celery)
3 inches fresh ginger root, peeled and chopped (roughly 2 tablespoons)
6 cups vegetable stock
sea salt and ground black pepper, to taste
4 cups chopped and packed greens (I used kale and a bit of chard)
1 14-ounce can full fat coconut milk
juice of 1 lime (about 2 tablespoons)
Heat a large, heavy pot over medium heat. Add the cumin and coriander seeds to the pot and toast in the dry pot until fragrant, about 1 minute. Remove the spices from the pot and grind them to a powder. Set aside.
Drop the coconut oil into the pot and let it melt/heat up for 30 seconds. Add the shallots to the pot and cook, stirring frequently, until soft and translucent, about 3 minutes. Add the zucchini and celery to the pot and stir. Add the ginger, ground cumin and coriander to the pot and stir to distribute the spices among the vegetables.
Add the vegetable stock to the pot and stir. Season with salt and pepper. Bring the vegetables and broth to a boil and then simmer, stirring here and there, until the zucchini is very tender, about 10 minutes.
Add the chopped greens and coconut milk to the pot and stir to mix. Keep simmering and stirring until the greens have wilted and are bright green. Remove the vegetables and stock from the heat.
Puree the soup with a stick blender or in batches using a blender. Return the pureed soup to the pot and bring it to a boil. Stir the fresh lime juice into the soup and adjust any other seasoning. Serve coconut green soup hot with any garnishes you like.
SATURDAY CLASS TIME CHANGES FROM NOVEMBER 1ST 2017
8.45am - New Mindful Flow Class with Mira Rao
When we learn to move with mindfulness, we become more present and peaceful with our bodies, our selves and our lives. In this one-hour class, Mira provides you with a deep experience of mindful flow in movement. She also teaches key anatomical understandings; you’ll need to move gracefully from the core of your body and being. Enjoy gentle flowing sequences peppered with longer holds and anatomical exploration of poses resulting in a deep experience of present, conscious and grounded movement.
