10 top yoga studios in Cape Town

A selection of the best yoga studios in Cape Town and surrounds

Cape Town is a sports haven in which yoga is quite the growing trend.  Meaning 'union' yoga has its roots in Sanskrit 'vuj' which unifies the mind, body and soul. We have selected some of the best yoga studios in Cape Town and surrounds to simplify your (re-)entry into the world of yoga. All you have to do is roll out your mat and assume the downward facing dog position. Namaste!
