A little bit about us..
Ground Up arose from the idea of duality, from the idea of a place that encompasses a full lifestyle experience of health and community.
At Ground Up, we offer a cozy cafe and yoga studio in a serene, yet rustic and eclectic space. Our mission is to provide a place for those in our community who seek and enjoy a healthy, active lifestyle as well as those longing for the comfort of a favorite coffee bar and smoothie “hang out”.
Ground Up proudly serves fair trade coffee and espresso from Parlor Coffee Roasters from Brooklyn, New York
A few words about our roaster...
" What began as a pocket square-sized espresso bar in the back of a barbershop is today an emerging coffee roasting company in Brooklyn, New York. At Parlor, we have set out to source and roast coffees with character.
Collectively, we are a small group of professionals and artists who believe that coffee is a beautiful and complex subject within the greater culinary landscape. Our approach is both fastidiously scientific and instinct-driven. Every one of the uniquely sweet coffees that has made its way into a bag bearing our label has been on a laborious journey beginning with the producer at origin and ending in the careful hands of the roaster. It is our tireless goal to consistently seek the best possible expression of each individual coffee.
Coffee is complex: it is the seed of a fruit limited to growth within the tropical belt. We aim to source the finest coffees of the world with honesty and an unwavering drive to reveal their beauty."

There are many ways to describe yoga. To us, Yoga means ‘union’ or ‘connection’. In Sanskrit, the word ‘yoga’ is used to signify any form of connection. Yoga is both a state of connection and a body of techniques that allow us to connect to anything.
Conscious connection to something allows us to feel and experience that thing, person, or experience. The experience of connection is a state of yoga, a joyful and blissful, fulfilling experience.
Awareness is the secret of yoga.
