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!

Cape Quarter
Every Tuesday evening from 6:30pm to 7:30pm, the Cape Quarter – in partnership with YogaLife offers all (beginner and experienced yogis) FREE yoga classes. Located on The Square level at the Events Area of the multi-storey lifestyle village and led by none other than YogaLife’s skilled instructors, the high quality yoga lessons are bound to have you breathing, stretching and bending your day’s stress away in no time. Suitable for anybody and everybody – irrespective of age and fitness level, YogaLife’s fully-equipped teachers are able to assist and teach yogis of all degrees. Although no prior booking is required as the sessions work on a first-come, first-serve basis, members are advised to arrive early (as well as bring their own mat, towel and water bottle) as the classes are known to be very popular. What’s more, the shopping mall is open seven days a week from 9am to 6pm which is ideal for those wishing to do a spot of shopping before the class – shoppers will find everything from a SPAR grocery and SPAR Tops! Liquor store to a wide range of fashion boutiques and interior design outlets . What’s more, the mall has an abundance of undercover parking bays available across a number of floors adding to the convenience and user-friendliness of the centre.
