An experience for the bucket-list, or your weekly fitness ritual... Choose where you want to om, who you want to om with, and get your zen on!
Outdoor yoga experiences for everyone with The Om Revolution
One of yoga’s (many) beauties is it can literally be done anywhere. And nature enhances your practice in an entirely different way than a studio does. Nature connects us to our roots and you need to root down before you rise up. Outdoor yoga is a wonderful way to reboot.
If nothing else, uneven, natural surfaces such as rock and grass can intensify your posture, adding additional benefits to build stronger muscles. An hour of mindful breath and movement synchronisation outside is a great way to align mind and body health.
Anyone and everyone of all fitness levels, including yoga newbies, are invited to join in the weekly 60-minute outdoor yoga classes, which run from late October to April. Classes are R70/p or R50/p if bought as a block of 4.

Wednesdays: 6pm at Century City’s Central Park Field
Thursdays: 6pm in Keurboom Park, Rondebosch
Saturdays: 9am in the Company’s Gardens
Sundays: 6:15pm at Clifton 3rd Beach

Weekly classes are incredible for finding your zen or making new friends. Enter The Om Revolution yoga experiences – tailor-made yoga classes where you get to decide who you want to om with, what yoga style you want to om to, and where you want to om.
Taking a private yoga class is empowering for those who don’t wish to take yoga classes with a group of complete strangers. Personal attention from a compassionate yogi, who understands your interests in the practice of yoga, helps to develop your strengths, flexibility, and even your comfort with exercise.
Privacy enhances the journey and encourages the mental and spiritual benefits of yoga to fully come to light. Set in the comfort of your own home and at a time to suit your schedule, private yoga instructions is suitable for all abilities. A once off private class costs R750 for 60-minutes or opt for weekly classes at R450/class.
The Om Revolution also sells unique environmentally friendly yoga mats made from recycled cork. Beautifully designed with alignment and proper posture in mind, the lines help you place your hands and feet properly and offer a guide for hip, arm, knee and chest alignment. These are priced at R960.
The Om Revolution offers you the opportunity to take your practice to places you’ve only dreamed of; on top of a mountain, on the beach, in a botanical garden to name but a few. And in a city consistently voted the most beautiful in the world you may have a hard time choosing just one location!
So why not experience these sites in a whole new way… with a downward dog on your yoga mat. Prices start at R1100 for a group of up to 10 people, yoga mats included. Give yourself the opportunity to inhale, exhale and ommmm with the sun on your face, the sea breeze in your hair and surrounded by beautiful sites. And there is always the opportunity to snap that once in a lifetime photo too.
We work long hours, often hunched over a computer. We skip meals, keep a phone glued to our ear and rarely leave our workspace for a break. Before long, these work habits begin to take their toll on our bodies and minds in the form of stress, tension and sickness.
The Om Revolution offers a simple and affordable solution, yoga at the workplace. Whether you are self-employed, a small-business owner or a corporate mogul, both your business and employees (even if that’s just you) will benefit by incorporating yoga into your work routine. There are multiple pricing options, so head to their website for more information or get in touch with them directly to find out more.
There really is something for everyone and no excuse not to explore the wonders that yoga has to offer.
Tip: Outdoor classes can get a little busy, so try to arrive 15 minutes early to sign in and pay (cash or SnapScan), grab your spot and chill out before the class starts.
