WELCOME TO YOGA EXPERIENCE

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 practising 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 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…

Yoga Intense Teacher Training this morning. We did 60 min of pranayama & meditation & I asked the trainees afterwards to give one word to describe their experience. This is what they came up with : PEACEFUL, RELAXING, EUPHORIC & LIBERATED. Not bad for sitting still and doing nothing. Be still and know. This is YOGA. This is how we roll at Yoga Experience. Namaste Sally #yogateachertraining #bikramyogateachertraining #pranyama #meditation #liberation #peace #relax

Did you know this about “SWEATING”: There is a vital link between physical fitness and cognitive ability. Sweating from a powerful yoga class ( be it Bikram or any other) releases BDNF - brain - derived neorotroohic factor - which super charges that organ for a winning day. BDNF has been shown to repair cells damaged by stress and accelerate the formation of neural connections, so you think better, and process faster. It also promotes neurogenesis, so you’ll actually grow new brain cells. (Source: “The 5am Club, Robin Sharma”) Practice yoga abs you will elevate your life 🙏 #flowyoga #vinyasaflowyoga #yogadaily #yogawarrior #yogainspiration #yogaposes #yoga #yogaclass #yogachallenge #yogalife #yogaeverday #yogaeverydamday #yogapractice #yogajourney #yogaforthepeople #yogaforeveryone #yogajournal #yogatherapy #generateenergy #getonyourmat #yogaforlife #yogaforyou #yogaforeverybody #yogaexperience #yogajohannesburg #yogasouthafrica

✨Pranayama Deep Breathing✨ demonstrated by our beautiful Sally 🖤

Because of sedentary habits, most people use only ten percent of their lungs, never allowing the lungs to reach the maximum expansion capacity that nature intended. As a result , they are susceptible to emphysema, asthma, shortness of breath and dozens of other breathing problems. Standing Deep Breathing teaches you to use the other ninety percent of your lungs.

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. 🙏💕✨
