  1. Probably more than any other Joburg studio, Yoga Warrior also provides a comfortable home for beginners with regular short courses over weekends and fundamentals classes during the week. Many Joburg yogis started their yoga lives here.

  2. Definitely one of the best yoga studios in JHB, that should be included on this list, is The Yoga Republic in Fontainebleau, Randburg. They offer various types of yoga, including Hot 26, in their beautiful eco-friendly space! Love this studio!
