Modern Organic: Cafe Profile

In the beautiful Central Coast suburb of Long Jetty there’s a Yoga studio with a bit of a twist. It’s called Modern Organic and this is one place you must not miss on your next trip to the ‘coast’. This place oozes wellbeing combining a beautiful organic cafe with body stretching, soul resting Yoga.

Modern Organic is owned by Kirt and Kiran, a husband and wife team with a passion for holistic health. This dynamic duo spent 10 years working in hospitality before pursuing their own ‘dream’ business, opening Modern Organic in March, 2016.

Modern Organic Specialties 

Imagine popping down for your regular Yoga class and then treating yourself to some delish Sacred Grounds coffee, organic, healthy meals or even a scrumptious smoothie. They’re all about inspiring others to make healthy choices that’s also great for the world as a whole. Over 20 Yoga classes are conducted every week as well as workshops and other events – so it really is a happening place. 

Ethos

We asked owner Kiran about the businesses ethos, its heart and this is what she had to say…

We care. We care about our planet, we care for ourselves and each other. We care where our products come from and how they are made. Using local, organic and ethically sourced products is an essential part in creating a healthy and sustainable future.

Organic practices are not just about the certification; they are about the holistic approach that supports the earth, all lifeforms, the farmer and us, the people. In light of this, we offer a consciously prepared and nutritious menu utilising organic, local, sustainable & seasonal ingredients where possible.

We are passionate about health & wellbeing, we are creating a conscious community, sharing knowledge and bringing awareness to people about the importance of maintaining a healthy mind, body, soul and planet.

This is why Sacred Grounds and Modern Organic fit so well together. We share the same outlook on life, the same heart for our world, the people in all nations and the food/ beverages that we consume. Kiran said…

We aim to align ourselves with likeminded businesses who believe in ethical and sustainable practices, which is clearly seen throughout Sacred Grounds’ range of certified organic and Fair Trade products.

The Modern Organic Difference

This place is more than a cafe, it’s more than a Yoga studio, it’s a community!

We have combined two passions to create a conscious community of people on the Central Coast. Where in a lot of Yoga studios, students walk out after their class and back to their own busy lives, our students often come out of a Yoga practice and head straight into our garden dining to mingle with the people they have shared a class with. 

Although the cafe attracts its own unique clientele, with a lot of our menu options being vegan and gluten free, we love the fact that the dual business complement each other and both students and customers become not only friends but part of the family.

That is what’s missing in the world, don’t you think? A sense of community, taking the time to get to know each other in the flesh and choosing healthier options that not only benefit the consumer but the producer!

So if you’re ever in the Long Jetty area, make sure you drop in for a chat, a stretch or just a coffee and something yummily-healthy to eat. You won’t regret it!
