Class descriptions


We offer a range of weekly group yoga classes, as well as one-on-one and small group private lessons, courses and workshops. We also love working with businesses and corporates to teach yoga in the workplace.

Our Yoga for Absolute Beginners class is perfect for those who have either never tried yoga before or have little experience practicing yoga. The class environment is relaxed and fun, providing you a nurturing space to build a strong and safe foundation from which to explore your practice and take it to the next level.

A deliciously deep and intense practice, we hold floor-based postures for longer periods, allowing the deep connective tissue (ligaments, tendons, fascia) around our joints to stretch and, consequently, strengthen. An introspective practice that offers a chance to turn inward and nurture the calm, quiet centre that is innate in all of us, this class will leave you with a deep, pervading sense of connection and peace.

Yoga is for everyone and you’re never too young to begin! We offer yoga classes for kids and teens to suit all age groups, from 2 – 17 years. Through yoga, kids and teenagers build their mental and physical strength and confidence, and learn emotional tools and helpful lessons for life in a welcoming, fun and creative environment.

Please note: These classes currently run fortnightly on Fridays 3 - 3.45pm. To book, please contact us.


Kids (2-9yrs)

Our kids yoga classes include lots of imagination, fun and discovery by using stories and adventures. These sessions are a wonderful way to increase children’s coordination, self-awareness, confidence and self-esteem while they stretch and strengthen their bodies. Using yoga, children can learn to relax, concentrate and be gentle in a fun and creative environment.


Pre-teens (9-12yrs)

Our pre-teen yoga classes start to resemble adult classes but we still keep the fun elements from the younger classes. At this age children may start to use yoga as a therapy or tool to deal with emotions and day-to-day stresses from school and life in general, and are introduced to the idea of journaling. The physical postures we explore build strength, flexibility and confidence.


Teens (13-17yrs)

Our yoga for teens classes resemble adult classes, the main difference being that the practice is modified to suit the common experiences of this age group and is a great way for teenagers to practise with friends and other students around their own age. Our teens are taught short yoga flows which they can practice at home. Journaling is encouraged, as well as having ‘check-in’ moments and a breathing practice, to help manage day-to-day stresses and anxiety. The physical practice will help build strength and flexibility and encourage a healthy, kind relationship with the body.

All mothers should be mothered! Receive lots of individual care, nurturing and nourishment in our Yoga for Pregnancy classes, suitable for all trimesters, where our expecting mothers can relax, stretch and strengthen. A wonderful way to connect to baby, physically and emotionally, and to meet other mums-to-be and share your experiences. Also suitable for mothers who have recently given birth (post-partum) and who are looking to return to gentle exercise.

Actively slow down and open your body through passive restorative stretching supported by props. This style of yoga has untold benefits for the body and mind – it balances the nervous system by deeply relaxing the body and quietening the mind, improving the body’s capacity to destress and self-heal.

Our Yoga for Runners class is specially designed to complement your running (or any form of athletic) training. We focus on stabilising ankles and knees and improving balance; building and maintaining core strength; increasing physical and mental stamina; stretching and strengthening legs and glutes; and fostering mindfulness and awareness of the breath and body. You will be taught how to stretch and breathe appropriately and correctly, enhancing recovery time and reducing the capacity to injure yourself.

Yoga is all about balance (literally and figuratively!) and flexibility needs to be complemented with strength. Our Yoga for Strength class is active and dynamic and will help you strengthen your mind as well as all the major muscle groups in your body (core, arms, legs, back). It’s a full-body and mind workout, and will encourage you to explore your fierce, powerful, vigorous side - building endurance and stability through the breath, challenging and focusing the body and mind through balances, and applying attention to detail for correct technique and alignment.

End your day with a dynamic practice to shift stagnant energy and prepare you for a great sleep! This class pays extra special attention to correct technique, alignment and action, to encourage a safe and grounded yoga practice. From this space, we will cover all varieties of poses, including forward bends, backbends, standing poses, arm balances and inversions in a manner that aims to balance strength and softness, action and letting go.

Begin your day in a positive way with our energising morning classes - bringing connection, mental clarity, a level mood, stamina and endurance for the day ahead. Your teacher may incorporate different styles of yoga and vary the pace and intensity of the class, as they lead you through the journey of a moving meditation.

Yoga Nidra is a simple, guided practice of deep relaxation, enabling the practitioner to experience a deeper sense of peace and re-connect more profoundly with themselves.

Yoga Nidra can be practiced by anyone. It holds immense benefits for those who struggle to let go, and those who suffer from stress, lack of sleep, burn-out and anxiety. The practice of Yoga Nidra leads us into a state of harmonious, restful being - a space where we can encounter, in freedom, states of consciousness which are liminal, meditative, healing and inspirational.

House of Yoga hosts a monthly donation-based Yoga Nidra class* on the last Wednesday evening of each month 6:45 pm - 7:15 pm, in studio and online. ALL PROCEEDS go to The Greenpop Foundation to aid in their sustainable urban greening & forest restoration projects, spread environmental awareness and activate people to become environmental stewards across Sub-Saharan Africa.

To book your spot, please email us at hello@houseofyoga.co.za

*Each and every cent raised from this class is hugely appreciated and there is no minimum donation required. If, however, you would like to make a contribution and need some guidance on how much would make a difference, ZAR 120 currently covers the cost of planting one tree. We would love to be able to donate one tree per person attending.
