About Anthea Yugawa, Instructor:  I am passionate about dancing and enjoy music from various genres. I was inspired to become a certified GroovaRooTM  teacher after having my daughter in June 2015.

More about Bare Snacks


Simplicity: less is more, in snacking and beyond

Goodness: our snacks must taste good and be good for you, and it matters that we respect the earth and others in the process

Being real: we bake what nature makes without trying to ‘fix’ imperfections, and everything you need to know is on the bag

Living life fully: it’s the little things that bring the most joy to everyday life

More about Purely Drinks


Inspired by thousand-year old tradition of vinegar making combined with a modern approach. Drinking vinegar is an ancient practice that dates back thousands of years, an elixir due to its known health benefits.

Enjoy Purely with sparkling water as a refreshing alcohol-free beverage or paired with fine spirits as a crafted cocktail/mocktail.
