There’s something magical about the scenic beauty of Cape Town. Some have speculated that the mountain has very unique energy fields. Whatever your theory is around the Mother City’s popularity, you can’t deny the natural charisma of it.
We’ve found a few places where you can connect with your spirituality through yoga. Whether you have been doing it for years, or you only started dabbling in it now, you can jump in and enjoy the refreshing combination of good exercise and fresh air! Oh, and don’t forget to look up and admire your surroundings.
Full Moon Yoga
This event is hosted during the summer months. It is a worldwide movement of embracing the power of yoga and nature every month with the arrival of the full moon. Reconnect and reflect during the sunset and wait for the full moon to rise as you end the session. On the Facebook page you can learn more each month about the moon and its connection with us.
The yoga session is hosted at The Pipe Track on Table Mountain, from 6:30PM to 7:30PM. Click here for direction. It’s a free event and everyone is welcome. It is a Vinyasa-based yoga style and it’s perfect for all levels. You will be mesmerized by the sun is setting in front of you, while the moon rises behind you!
Bring along your mat, some water and warm clothes for afterwards. It cools down very quickly on the mountain once the sun sets. Arrive at 6.15PM to set up for the session. You don’t have to book ahead of time, simply pitch and enjoy the unique experience. Afterwards fresh Kombuchas is served.
