The word Yoga means “union” and Sally’s intention is to dissolve the bridges that tend to exist between the various styles of yoga and create a community where this union is honored, respected and reflected. To say that one style of yoga is better than another creates separation and righteousness, immediately distancing us from humility and Oneness. For Sally, yoga is like a big beautiful tree. Each branch of the tree is a different style of yoga and it is the sum of the branches that make up the Yoga Tree.
Yoga Experience, formally Go Yoga and originally Bikram Yoga Jozi, owned by Sally Flanagan, opened its doors in June 2003. The studio started off as a solely Bikram Yoga studio and over the years has evolved to a studio where a variety of Yoga styles are offered. This evolution was inspired by Sally’s love for yoga in its’ entirety and she thus wanted to share with her community, the beauty and benefits that come from practicing more than one kind of yoga.

We look forward to breathing and moving with you and sharing and spreading the joy that comes from a regular yoga practice. Whether you are an experienced yogi or a beginner to the practice, please come along and join the tribe.

Welcome to Yoga Experience.
Om shanti

Yoga In Your Life

Many people are first drawn to yoga as a way to keep their bodies fit and supple – good to look at and to live in. Others come seeking help or relief for a specific complaint, like tension or backache. Some are merely impelled by a sense that they are not getting as much out of life as they could be. Whatever your reason, yoga can be a tool, an instrument for you, giving you both what you came for, and more…
