To most people Cacao is known as nothing more than chocolate, or as a superfood (which it is), but Cacao is also a tool for healing, self-realisation and connection. This tradition runs from ancient civilizations such as the Mayan and the Aztec people all the way up to today.

 

The civilisations who used Cacao in this way were a lot more connected to mother earth than we are today, and Cacao was shared amongst communities to bring people together. It was known as ‘heart medicine of the earth’, widely known to deepen our own connection to our heart. Cacao is heart-opening, it is heart awakening and it aims to guide us from the busyness of our minds back into this deeper place of feeling.

 

KaKaw is a Mayan verb that literally means ‘to drink chocolate together’, and during moments where humanity strays from heart-filled intentions, this was the medicine to return us to our true nature. To bring us back home; which is the space of love, compassion and togetherness.

 

Ceremonial-grade Cacao is chocolate in its purest form, where nothing has been added or taken away, using high-quality Cacao beans and processed minimally at low temperatures. What gives Cacao its heart-opening quality is the property of theobromine, which increases our blood flow through our heart. Therefore it is important to always mindfully be aware of how strong you prepare your cup of Cacao, as the higher dosage used will provide a potentially stronger physical effect. In my opinion to receive the benefits of this medicine ‘less is more’.

 

Cacao is also a good alternative for folks who are looking to give up coffee, as it can provide the same ‘kick’ coffee provides only without the negative effect it has on our adrenals. Cacao is rich in antioxidants, it includes all of the mood enhancers such as the love molecule, anandamide (known as the bliss molecule), and it also increases our oxytocin, thus creating a deeper sense of connection with others. Everything about Cacao is there to make us feel good.

 

Cacao is wonderful to incorporate within reflective practices such as sound healing and meditation, and on Monday 17th January I will be combining a Cacao Ceremony with Sound Healing.

 

This event invites you to drop into a gentle space of awareness and stillness; to drink together, setting our own individual intentions then to be guided through a meditation just before we settle ourselves comfortably for the healing practice of Sound Healing.

 

Expect sounds from beautifully crafted Himalayan Singing bowls, chimes, bells and singing which is all uniquely designed to take you on an inner journey.

This month’s Full Moon Cacao Ceremony has sold out. To book a spot at Francesca’s next event on the 16th February please email members@moveyourframe.com

Cocktails, Cans and CBD. Elevate your drinking this Party season…

 

Party Pro’s.. this one’s for you. Moth Drinks have created cocktails in a can that taste incredible so that special mix can happen anywhere. Their cool cans can be enjoyed on the move and bring a mix of total happiness to any party occasion. If you happen to find yourself doing an evening class in Shoreditch this month – you might be lucky enough to get one served to you by our FOH. Our good friends at Moth have also offered Framers 20% off their first order (just use the code FRAME20 at the checkout)

 

Part time party’er. Looking for a drink that gets you in the party mood but won’t wreak havoc the morning after? White Claw are the go-to hardselzer of 2021. Low in sugar and cals, it’s also vegan and gluten-free if that kind of thing is important to you. Pretty much a saintly seasonal spirit for those who want the best of both worlds. Booked into an evening class this December? Don’t forget to grab a post-class can on us. 

 

Partied Out? We hear you and we’re prescribing INTUNE CBD. The brand is on a mission to share CBD with the world so that more people can be present, find their focus and get INTUNE. The range of all-natural, vegan, sparkling fruit and botanical drinks are the perfect antidote to a hectic party season. You can enjoy solo or create a cocktail using one of their recipes here.  They have also kindly offered all Framers 20% off their first order by using the code FRAME20 at the checkout.

 

I don’t party. Whether you’ve given up the booze for good or just want to mix it up by throwing a seriously good alcohol-free drink into your party season we’ve got just the thing. If you’ve not yet gotten your lips around a Lucky Saint beer, then you’re seriously missing out. This superior alcohol-free beer tastes so good and is low cal and vegan friendly. What’s not to love? Book an evening class at one of our studios this December and you’ll get a post-class bottle of Lucky Saint totally free.

Let’s be honest, the rules and regulations for the easing of lockdown have been as clear as mud. So we would like to clear up a couple of vital things in relation to the reopening of our studios. Let us get straight to the point and answer ALL your burning questions that have been sliding into our DMs this week.

 

Are you opening on the 12th of April?  

You might know our strapline ‘I don’t go to the gym, I go to FRAME’. And as such we will sadly NOT be allowed to reopen on the 12th of April in line with ‘gyms’ instead we’re aiming for the 17th of May with all ‘group fitness’ following the government guidelines. 

 

Do you have details on studio pricing? 

Absolutely, you can see our studio pricing here. We’ve got a brand new ‘how to pay’ page coming soon but for now, you can find all the information you need HERE

 

Are you doing outdoor classes? 

Not right now. We’ve got HUGE plans for reopening and we are putting all of our efforts into making our studio relaunches the best experience ever for you guys. As the weather gets warmer we may revisit the Kings Cross outdoor classes that have been running for the past four years. Keep your eyes peeled 👀  P.s – you can take our online classes to the park. Vitamin D plus endorphins for a double dose of feel good.

 

Are you doing open gym like other studios? 

No, we don’t feel like this is the FRAME experience we want to create for you. However, you can book into 1-2-1 Reformer session and PT at any of our studios except for Hammersmith. Find all PT and Reformer 1-2-1 info HERE 

 

When is Hammersmith reopening?

Annoyingly we can’t reopen Hammersmith just yet as IKEA is still doing massive building work in the mall – how handy will it be to pick up some ‘bits’ from IKEA post-class though?? Hold tight and we’ll be back with a bang in September. 

 

Is FRAME Online staying?

 Yes, one million percent. Our Livestream and on-demand classes are now part of the FRAME furniture. Like that sofa in Friends…PIVOT it ain’t going anywhere. Come to see us in the studio when you can and get your fix online when you can’t. Seamless.

 

What’s happening online in April?

OK, so we may have slid this cheeky one in BUT only because we don’t want you to miss out on the online action we’re serving up. You can book into a 30-minute Breakfast Club class at 7.15am Monday – Thursday with big personalities and PRIZES yes every morning you show up to class you could be randomly selected to win a prize worth £70 from our friends Wild, Moju Drinks, Aguulp (Professor Greens liquid supplements) and liquid hugs via Gibsons Goodology. BOOK NOW.

Boris may have put a stop to us safely reopening our studios but that won’t stop us getting Framers moving! We’ve just launched an outdoor studio at Coal Drops Yard in Kings Cross. Exciting!! Here’s everything you need to know ahead of coming to see us in person.

GETTING THERE
Kings Cross is super accessible. Whether your walking, cycling or using public transport (please mask up!) Once you arrive at Kings Cross make your way to Granary Square and Coals Drops Yard is just next to it. Find the map here

CHECKING IN
You will find out FOH in Coal Drops Yard – lookout for our snazzy pop-up desk and go and check-in. If you’re doing a Barre class you will be going to the steps by Regents Canal (see image above!) Please arrive 10 minutes before your class is due to start.

HYDRATION
As always it’s important to drink plenty of water before and after class. Please bring a bottle from home, but you can refill at any tap in the bathrooms on site (confirmed as drinking water).

LOCKERS & BAGS
Please leave your belongings at home – we’re in an open public space, so try and limit what you bring, so that it can stay with you safely at all times

WEATHER
The show must go on whatever the Great British Summer brings (finger crossed the good weather continues!) Come rain or shine we will be moving, so be prepared with sunscreen or a light waterproof.

TOILETS & CHANGING

There are toilet facilities at Coal Drops Yard that you can use. It’s right behind Son’s and Daughter’s Sandwich shop so you can’t miss it. We recommend to come ready for class but if you need to change into your kit you can use these facilities.

CANCELLATIONS

We can only accommodate such a small amount of people per class, if you need to cancel please let us know at least 24 hours in advance, so someone else can have a chance to take the spot.
