Go Yoga Jozi, originally Bikram Yoga Jozi, owned by Sally Flanagan, opened its doors in June 2003. It’s situated in the Thrupps centre on Oxford Road in Illovo.
The studio started off as solely a Bikram Yoga studio (as the original Bikram Studio in South Africa) but has evolved over the years to include many different forms of yoga — thereby giving students a wide range of choice when it comes to their yoga practice. Yoga practices include Bikram, Flow, Forrest, Iyengar, Restorative, Pregnancy, and Parent & Child Yoga.
I’ve been practising at the studio since 2009, and have really come to consider the studio as my second home.
My yoga mat is my ‘happy place.’
The student profile is very diverse, reflecting the cosmopolitan nature of Joburg. Renovations are currently underway, which will see a second studio being opened in the same space before the end of this year. This added studio will allow for two yoga classes to run concurrently, thus giving students even more choice when it comes to the class schedule. Watch this space!
So fond am I of the studio that you will find me manning the front desk on a Sunday morning, where I see to studio admin :)
So if you are looking to enjoy a wonderful practice in a calming space, please do visit Go Yoga Jozi! For more info on their classes and schedule visit their website Bikram Yoga Jozi
