His & Hers was at the launch of the food market, which was a great social occasion where we enjoyed awesome food. The kitchens are becoming legendary; with their emphasis on healthy, quality food. We loved Pilgrim, with its distinctive take on Spanish cuisine. The ground floor kitchens cater for almost all tastes, including vegan and vegetarian. The intention was always to become a meeting place and vibrant hub for the wider community. Hence, they are hosting well-being classes that work towards relaxation and wellness. The launch date is in acknowledgement of World Mental Health Day.
The Market, always child and dog friendly, has unveiled a whole calendar of events. Something for everyone: from stress-busting lunchtime yoga classes, to postnatal yoga for new mums, all offer an opportunity to de-stress, relax and chat.
Every Thursday, guests can expect postnatal yoga at 10.30am, where qualified local instructor Gina Torres will guide new mothers through a gentle session. Babies are also welcome in this class. At 11.30am, there’s toddler yoga for the slightly older children that are of walking to preschool age. On Fridays, Gina will also host a weekly wind down yoga session from 12pm, giving guests the chance to de-stress ahead of the weekend. There is an option to pre-book lunch from one of the six kitchens ahead of the yoga session, with the food being ready as soon as the class finishes at 12.45pm. Sounds like a win-win to me.
And on the first Saturday of every month, Duke Street Market will also host a DSM Saturday Social from 10am. It will evolve, be interesting, and fun. It will always be an upbeat class that aims to deliver that feel-good-factor.
Lee Bannon-Smith, General Manager of Duke Street Market, said: “We really want the Market to become a sociable hub for Liverpool and that’s instilled in the way we encourage community dining; right through to the events we have planned.
“We’d love for our guests to meet new people and try new things…We’d also love to welcome our guests who are parents for baby bonding time, or they can come alone to have some time out for themselves.
“Gina is a fantastic yoga instructor and will accommodate all abilities; from beginner through to advanced. She’s also fully qualified to teach post-natal yoga so new mothers joining us will be in great hands.”
