The Best Unique Yoga Studios in Cape Town & Surrounds

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

Last Updated: 5 March 2019

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 Mother City boasts numerous world-class yoga studios and if you’re a newbie looking to join the world of yogis or an established yoga guru looking for a new place to unroll your mat, we’re certain our list of Cape Town’s top yoga studios will have something to offer you. Happy stretching and Namaste!

HOLDING SPACE CAPE TOWN
Holding Space is a new yoga studio with a difference in Woodstock. Situated just outside the city bowl on Victoria Road.

Holding Space is what yoga instructor, Kafui Awoonor, calls “the first black-owned and run yoga studio in Cape Town”. And that’s important to her, because, as some might know, Kafui was very vocal recently around making yoga more outwardly open and inviting to all Capetonians.

Different types of yoga and wellbeing practices are available. From vinyasa, hatha and kundalini to movement therapy.

You can also look forward to sound journey experiences, womens’ circles and monthly new moon or full moon gatherings. Read more about Holding Space Cape Town

(They're very well priced however still ask them if they have specials for CapeTownMagazine.com readers at present).

THE OM REVOLUTION MOBILE YOGA STUDIO
Opening its doors in 2014 as Cape Towns first mobile yoga service, The Om Revolution is now under new ownership. Husband and wife team Joe and Hayley Speakman continue to bring a fresh perspective and energy to yoga for all walks of life. With a focus on taking yoga to the people, they offer a range of services designed to suit your yoga needs. These include the very popular outdoor classes, held in the summer months of Nov–April (R70pp or R50pp when bought as a block of four classes). As of January 2019, outdoor classes cost only R50. All the more reason to kickstart your health in the new year! Private yoga experiences in your chosen location (R1100 for groups of up to 10 and R1600 for groups up to 20, including mat rental). You can even take yoga to the office with the popular corporate yoga programmes. Contact them for more information and read more about The Om Revolution and their weekly yoga schedule

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

It is here where you can reconnect, refocus and replenish your reserves under the guidance of experienced yoga teachers. This is also the only studio that teaches moon sequence as well as beginner classes which focus on synergy and meditation. The yoga classes are kept deliberately small to ensure a low teacher-to-student ratio, which in turn gives you a high-quality class and the best possible practice.

The backpackers hosts yoga classes seven days a week and drop-in classed range from R80p/p - R100p/p, and R600p/p - R750p/p for a 10-class card. Of course, if you want to contrast the calming effects of yoga with an adrenaline rush, the vibrant hostel integrates surf culture into its look and also offers surf lessons and as well as board and wetsuit hire.
