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.

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…

I was in Satsang with Mooji in Rishikesh last week. It was pure joy.

"Yoga is not for the timid" - Donna Farhi
This sums up my Bikram Yoga class this morning - holy tolido!!!
My 1st class in 6 weeks ( after shoulder surgery). My shoulder was amazing but I had to work my meditation 100%. From the beginning of the floor series I had to fight off the voices: "it's too hot", "only 30min left." , "I want to leave but I can't leave", "I'm unfit", "this is. Uncomfortable "And so on and so forth.
What continues to draw me back to my Bikram yoga practice is the extent to which I need to surrender, to let go of my ego, everything and allow - otherwise the class is impossible.
By the smile on my face and the energy, you wouldn't think I'd just "suffered" for 90 minutes. Gotta love it. I look forward to getting "bikram strong again" because that's bliss!! Namaste
