Best Yoga Studios in Cape Town

Get your downward dog on with this comprehensive list of Cape Town’s best yoga studios.

Last Updated: 12 July 2017

Yoga is the art of stretching, breathing and connecting the physical form with the spiritual form. Practices of the ancient exercise date back thousands of years. The word ‘yoga’ derives from Sanskrit and means to ‘join or unite’ which is symbolic of the union between consciousness and body; mind and soul.

21 June marks the annual celebration of International Day of Yoga. Initiated on 11 December 2014, the United Nations proclaimed 21 June as International Day of Yoga in the effort to recognise its global popularity and the many benefits associated with its practices. The theme for the 2017 celebration is ‘Yoga for Health’ and highlights the many wondrous health benefits the practice of yoga offers. 

Feeling inspired enough to discover your inner yogi? You’ve come to the right place. The Mother City is no stranger to the joys of yoga and boasts numerous world class yoga studios that will undoubtedly fix your yoga itch. Whether you’re a newbie looking to join the world of yogi’s or an established yoga guru just looking for a new place to unroll your mat, we’re certain our comprehensive list of Cape Town’s top yoga studios will have something to offer you. Happy stretching and Namaste!

Unraveled Yoga
This inner city yoga getaway is edgy, young, fun and unique. Located on the ever popular Bree Street, this yoga studio is a little different when it comes to the traditional interior design you’d expect from a yoga studio. The walls are covered in stunning graffiti murals done by Cape Town’s own Falko One. It is fully equipped with all the bells and whistles and you can bring your own mat and towel or rent theirs for just R40. They offer classes that range from absolute beginner to seasoned professional. They specialise in vinyasa with an unraveled twist, which means they teach vinyasa flow accompanied by sweet beats.

ReUnion Yoga and Meditation
