Sunday Yoga Brunch, Chai Street, Canton, Cardiff, Sun 10 Mar
Enjoying food is the perfect way to relax; combining it with yoga to aid digestion and unwind, this event seems the perfect way to spend a Sunday morning. Beginning with a 75-minute yoga session led by Maddie Norris, participants will be able to recharge and detox from the week. Yoga mats will be provided and the event welcomes both beginners and those with more advanced skills. Following the session, participants will be able to refresh by enjoying a traditional Kombucha (a fermented drink made from sweetened tea), golden milk or a masala chai latte. Once everyone is truly relaxed, head-chef Logan will present a bespoke menu designed specially for the brunch. The menu – inspired by home cooking, and the use of unique spices and textures – promises to be something delicious, interesting and new.

An Evening with Chimay, The Cambrian Tap, Cardiff, Tue 19 Mar
Chimay is one of Belgium’s oldest Trappist beers – seeped in history and rich in flavour. For those not in the know, a Trappist beer is one brewed in a Trappist monastery by its community of monks. The event, hosted by Brains’ Cambrian Tap pub, will allow guests to sample three authentic Trappist beers – red, blue and white – and each will be paired with a special cheese; there will also be a talk on Chimay’s brewing tradition and history. This night is especially apt for everyone who’s tired of wine and cheese – the new combination of beer and cheese looks set to be a hit.
