As part of the CELEBRATE SPRING with 30 Days of Yoga Challenge by Yoom Wellness, my experience at Unraveled was unforgettable. The classes were strong, vibey and filled with energy.
Situated in Cape Town’s ever-popular Bree Street, Unraveled Yoga provides their own signature style of Vinyasa classes, much needed for the ultimate fulfilling day. Maya Pratt, the founder, gives us some food for thought:
My aim for the studio is to merge the beautiful and chaotic qualities of city life to the essence of yoga – finding your peace/stillness/tranquility within the mayhem of everyday life.
Our aim for the Celebrate Spring Challenge was to create awareness around yoga. How has yoga benefited you?
M: As a person, it has opened up a space to be totally present and become more aware of how my body works and moves. I’ve always liked to be active, in different ways, and yoga was a great addition that also brought a mindful component to movement. Now I am an instructor and a practitioner and love finding the balance of enjoying my yoga and being able to share it with others.
What advice do you have for someone that has never tried yoga?
M: You’ll never know until you try – pick a studio, pick a class time, commit to it and show up. Do that again and again and you’ll definitely find a sweet spot. Of course, it may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but love it or hate, you will learn something about your body or about your mind and you can always take that with you.
I regret going to yoga – said no one ever!
