WELCOME

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.

YOGA PHILOSOPHY

The History of Yoga

The origins of yoga are shrouded in the mists of time for yoga is regarded as a divine science of life, revealed to enlightened sages in meditation. The oldest archaeological evidence of its existence is provided by a number of stone seals showing figures in yogic postures, excavated from the Indus valley and thought to date from around 3000BC. Yoga is first mentioned in the vast collection of scriptures called the Vedas…

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…

Shasta Jordan in the eyes and hearts of our students. 💕 Here’s what one of them had to say...
“Shasta Jordan has chosen to dedicate her life to giving; whether it be teaching yoga, preparing mothers-to-be for birth and motherhood, her craniosacral therapy practice, her family or her written works.

This dedication is obvious in the way she guides students through their yoga practice. Shasta’s unique approach to teaching yoga, forces students out of learned routines and into challenging new postures with adapted transitions.

Shasta’s yoga practices are designed to enhance flexibility, core and uniquely to optimise fascia - an anatomical subject of great interest.

Shasta is a unique talent and a path founder for yoga instructors, modern woman and human beings in general.”

Thank you Shasta for being the phenomenal force that you are and for your exceptional contribution to our studio. 🙏💕✨

In yoga we learn to become the silent observer of our experience rather than becoming roped up in our thoughts and emotions. This is such a liberating skill that can be learnt with practice. Next time you are in class and you feel a little overwhelmed or uncomfortable, notice if you can simply land in your body and bare witness to your experience. There is no good or bad. Just feeling, observing, surrendering, softening, opening and healing 💕

Our gentle reminder to you!

With Love
In The Flow
The Yoga Experience Team ✨🙏

When nothing is sure, everything is possible.
Learn to exist in the uncertainty and be okay with being there, being exactly where you are, perfectly present. It is basic human nature to want to know what is next and calculate every outcome because it is sometimes so uncomfortable to simply be where you are and not know what is coming next, but this action only pulls us out of the present moment which is all we ever truly have.
The future is imaginary and as much as we should strive towards our goals, it has not yet come to be - and we will never truly be sure of how it will unfold. It is nothing more than a figment of our imagination.
Yield to where you are, let go and flow with the river of life and simply be with yourself, in your body, in your circumstances, with your feelings without trying to fix or justify them. Without an explanation or escape - for this is the process of self enquiry, this is yoga!

Yoga is the art that teaches us to release that which we are clutching to so tightly. To back up and adjust if we need to. To surrender and to move with the tides of life. When we are able to practice these actions in our yoga, we are able to take that same action forward with us into all other facets of our lives.
