During this difficult time, it's important to stay both relaxed and busy. With all of us in quarantine due to the coronavirus pandemic, there are a ton of things you can do within the confinement of your home to stay healthy and motivated. Luckily for us Montrealers, we have some amazing instructors and studios who are offering free virtual yoga classes to keep our bodies moving while we spend so much time inside.
Many local Montreal yoga studios, as well as individual teachers, have been turning to Instagram to give their followers free virtual classes.
Following these online courses will both help you in staying grounded, and give you something productive and positive to do while in quarantine.
For those who have never done yoga, this is a great opportunity to try it out. Yoga does wonders for your body, mind, and soul.
Now is the time to start taking care of yourself. While it's easy to get lost in the sea of junk food and Netflix, that doesn't make us feel too good about ourselves. That's why I'm so grateful for these yoga courses that I can do from the comfort of my own home.
While there are a million and one spots to enjoy a 5 à 7 in the city, not everywhere does happy hour quite like this Montreal restaurant in the Village.
Resto Keela serves $6 drinks from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., including house draft beer, house red or white wine, and speed rail mixed drinks, which is a choice of vodka, rye, rum, or gin — a pretty hard drink deal to beat.
As for food, you can go every week and try a different $6 dish at happy hour. "The $6 bites change from week to week but we always offer 3-5 options," owners Kristin Murphy and Johnny Hamilton told MTL Blog.
I went on September 10 and got to try green beans with a cashew romesco sauce and feta crumble, chorizo sausage, chicken Kaarage with kimchi cucumbers, and organic cherry tomato salad with blue cheese. And I kid you not when I say these dishes all take your taste buds on a culinary trip to heaven.
Keela's full menu is also filled with tons of unique dishes for you to try. The celery root carpaccio is hands down my favourite.
Every Friday night, you can hear the sweet voice of Bud Rice sing live at the restaurant.
