Quaint, cozy and quite literally a room, The Yoga Room is a charming yoga studio in Cape Town. Situated in Vredehoek on the corner of Derry and Exner Streets, The Yoga Room is quite unassuming and can be easily missed if you aren’t familiar with the area. I must admit, I drove passed the studio a few times before I decided to park and find it on foot. But once you walk onto its stoep, you’ll never miss it again. With only 80 sqm of studio space, there isn’t much room for changing. And while there are 2 comfortable change…

A little confused by words like jumps, arrow and 60” In this article, I explain exactly what my ride guides mean. I remember how confused I was the first time I listened to a spinning podcast. I had no idea what the instructor was referring to, but kept spinning hoping I was doing the right thing and not injuring myself. It wasn’t until I walked into a real-live spin class that I began to understand what the instructor meant when she yelled out, “let’s hit the flat road”. I must say, my guestimations when trying to interpret a ride guide…

Will spinning give you bulky thighs? Keep reading to find out… A few years ago, celeb trainer Tracy Anderson said that spinning gives you bulky thighs. She’s been misquoted a few times, but what she actually meant was spinning exclusively for a few months will bulk up your thighs. Regardless of whether she was misquoted or not, those comments suddenly had every one who didn’t want “bulky” legs asking questions. First of all, what one person sees as “bulky” isn’t necessarily what another person sees. How you want your body to look is really a personal matter, between you and…

The gentle and soothing cueing of Tegan B Yoga will help anyone forgive themselves for not getting out the house and into a public yoga class. As you probably guessed, I didn’t get out the house as much as I would’ve liked this month, but I found really great online at-home yoga audio classes. It’s no secret that I’m a YouTube yogi, as I first started practicing yoga in my spare bedroom. I fell in love with the practice because it was my own. No prying eyes, no judgements, and especially, no comparisons. I could figure out this thing called…
