Asana in August & Back to Basics

Dear Unravelers,

Another winter month has gone by - hello August!  Continuing on the 8 limbed path of yoga, the next limb and this month's focus at the studio will be Asana in August.  In English, asana translates to posture or pose.  Join us at the studio this month to delve deeper into our understanding of specific yoga postures, their alignment, benefits and and the role asana plays in the greater landscape of our yoga journeys.  

What better way to kick off a month of asana than with our Back to Basics Workshop this Saturday?  Join Courtney on Saturday at 10:30am for a 90 minute workshop that will break down the alignment of basic yoga postures, breathing techniques and set you up for future yoga class success.  This workshop is perfect for the beginner to intermediate yogi, so grab your friend or partner and take it back to the basics! R200. Email info@unraveledyoga.com to book today - spaces are limited.

In other exciting news - our schedule is expanding so you have more time to get unraveled with us!  Join us for a new Sunday 5pm Slow Flow class starting this month!  This is a smooth and west flow class that moves a touch slower to help you round out your weekend.  Check our schedule tab to stay updated on all classes.

We look forward to flowing with you soon.

Much love,

Warm Up With Niyamas in July

Dear Unravelers,

It seems that winter has arrived in full force!  To keep you and your yoga practice warm we have a limited Winter Special offering at the studio.  Available for purchase until July 15th - 2 months of unlimited yoga for only R1,300! Come on in and flow your way into Spring.

As me move into July, we will transition from learning about the yamas to delving deeper into the niyamas. The niyamas are the next layer of the 8 Limbed Path of Yoga, and focus on building our internal landscape through strength and discipline. Together the yamas and niyamas help us create and maintain a positive environment for the body, mind and spirit. The niyamas are:

  • Saucha: purification and cleanliness
  • Santosha: contentment
  • Tapas: self-discipline
  • Svadhyaya: self-study
  • Ishvara Pranidhara: dedication and devotion

Also, back by popular demand, more Budokon Yoga! Join us for a 4 part Introductory Series with Ashlea Paddock starting next Wednesday, July 5th.  Spaces are limited so email info@unraveledyoga.com asap to book your spot.

Yamas in June

Dear Unravelers,

We can't believe how quickly Mudra May flew right by us!  We hope that you picked up some new pearls of wisdom and were able to have some fun with your hands.  As we move into June, we will begin to explore the yamas.  The yamas are part of the 8 Limbed Path of Yoga, and outline 5 ethical guidelines to practice in your yoga journey.  The yamas are: 

  • Non-Harming (Ahimsa)
  • Truthfulness (Satya)
  • Non-Stealing (Asteya)
  • Moderating the Senses (Brahmacharya) 
  • Non-Possessiveness (Aparigraha)

Get ready to delve a little deeper into yoga history and philosophy in each class, and come by to learn more!  

To further your yoga journey and connect a little deeper to the Cape Town yoga community, we highly encourage you to check out Cape Town's very own International Day of Yoga on June 17th! See below for details and be sure to book your FREE ticket ahead of time.  We look forward to seeing you on and off that mat

Much love,

May: Mudra Month

Dear Fellow Unravelers, 

Thank you so much for all of your support in and around the studio this month as we have started to find our own feet!  It has been an absolute pleasure flowing with each and every one of you, and we hope to continue to see you on the mat and around town.

If you haven’t already heard, May is Mudra Month at Unraveled.  A mudra is a hand (or body) gesture or seal that guides energy flow and reflexes to the brain. Each class this month will be dedicated to a specific mudra, so come around to learn more and get your hand jive on!

Watch this space for more details about our upcoming 200 hour Teacher Training in September, and for all other goodies happening at Unraveled Yoga. We look forward to seeing you soon again!

Namaste,

The Unraveled Yoga Fam
