Outdoor Yoga For Everyone With The Om Revolution
An hour of mindful breath and movement outside is a great way to reboot and align body and mind
A wonderful thing about yoga is that you can do it just about anywhere with minimal equipment. A studio is a great option, but doing yoga outdoors in nature has additional benefits.
Nature enhances your practice by connecting you deeper to your roots – quite literally. Uneven, natural surfaces such as rock, grass, and beach sand can intensify your posture, helping to build stronger muscles.
The Om Revolution offers a regular schedule of yoga classes in beautiful locations with qualified instructors, making yoga accessible and fun for all. Anyone and everyone of all fitness levels, including yoga newbies, can join the weekly 60-minute outdoor yoga classes, which run from late October to round about April every year. In 2018 and 2019, classes are still R70pp or R50pp if bought as a block of four. As of January 2019, outdoor classes cost only R50. All the more reason to kickstart your health in the new year!
Look for The Om Revolution flag to find your instructor in the following locations:
- Tuesdays: 5:45pm in the Company’s Gardens (The second lawn after the SA National library on the lower end of the Government Avenue side of the Gardens).
- Wednesdays: 6pm at Century City’s Central Park Field on the oval (Park Lane)
- Fridays: 5:30pm in Mouille Point (new location). Classes take place off the promenade near the blue statue. 75 Beach Road.
- Saturdays: 9am in the Company’s Gardens
- Sundays: 6:15pm. Clifton 3rd Beach (down the stairs next to the big boulder)
Note: As of January 2019, the Friday evening Mouille Point class moves to Thursday evening at 5:30pm.
DOWNWARD DOG ON TABLE MOUNTAIN AND BEYOND
Inhale, exhale and ommmm in places you’ve only dreamed of and take the photos that will make all your friends want to join. The Om Revolution can tailor classes to meet your individual or group requests if you prefer not to take yoga classes with strangers. You can do yoga for just about any event, from corporate team building and wellness days to hen parties, weddings and birthdays.
Choose any suitable location that you can imagine or choose from favourites such as Table Mountain, Chapman’s Peak, Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens or Llandudno Beach (excluding entrance fees/transport). You’ll pay a total of R1100 for groups of up to 10 and R1600 for groups up to 20 (both including mat rental).
Reduce stress, tension and sickness by investing in the wellbeing of your employees through a simple and affordable method. Yoga is an invaluable tool in the fight against workplace stress.
You provide a space (conference rooms, rooftops, outdoor spaces) and a qualified teacher can come and show you and/or your team how to unwind.
ALIGNMENT YOGA MATS
The Om Revolution sells unique environmentally-friendly yoga mats made from recycled natural cork. The mats are naturally antibacterial and extremely grippy, even when wet. Beautifully designed with alignment and proper posture in mind, the lines help you place your hands and feet correctly and offer a guide for hip, arm, knee and chest alignment. These are priced at R960 and are available online.
FRESH PERSPECTIVE AND ENERGY
The Om Revolution is now under new ownership of husband and wife team Joe and Hayley Speakman who both thoroughly appreciate and enjoy the practice and benefits of yoga. The business still operates in the same way and will continue to demonstrate the benefits of yoga across all levels and walks of life.
