ReUnion is the home base for MYSORE YOGA CAPE TOWN. Mysore Yoga Cape Town offers daily authentic Ashtanga yoga classes in the Mysore-style method – right here at our studio.
This means that as a new student you are given just a few postures to start with. As you master each pose, over days, weeks, months and years, your teacher will give you more postures to focus on. In this way you memorise your practice by heart slowly and safely. This enables you to focus inwardly, listening to nothing but your own breath, and the result is a meditative moving practice. This practice was introduced to the West through the work of Sri K. Pattabhi Jois in the city of Mysore, India.
This is an independent programme. Please make your bookings via mycpt.
Sharline Rofail, head of MYCT, is originally from Johannesburg where she studied a degree in Fine Arts and ran her own little cafes for many years. She then moved to Copenhagen, Denmark, where she studied a degree in Global Nutrition and Health. Living in Copenhagen presented many inspiring opportunities for her to learn from and work with various KPJAYI authorised Ashtanga teachers from around the globe such as her long term teacher Mikko Seppinen. In 2015 she moved to Cape Town to head the Ashtanga program for Mysore Yoga Cape Town.
Sharline brings with her a decade of dedicated practice and teaching experience. She regularly travels to Mysore, India, to deepen her understanding of yoga, and to connect to the Ashtanga Yoga lineage of Sri K. Patthabi Jois and his grandson Sharath. Her teaching style is gentle yet focused and encouraging. She hopes to help students realise their abilities beyond the limitations of their mind.
