myUTOPIA has to be one of the most magical places I have spent time in. A lifestyle space that is there to support your health and wellness, I wish I could spend every moment I have spare right there in one of their studios. I was invited to try out a class and have breakfast at myUTOPIA and I was stoked to finally walk into one of their studios, as well as sit down at their cafe to refuel and reflect afterwards.
As Jeanne is not that into yoga, I asked my friend, Fran, to come along with me instead, giving us some quality time to exercise, catch up and spend some much-needed time together away from life.
I attended the opening of myUTOPIA, so I kind of knew what to expect regarding the spaces, people and classes they provided, however, I had never attended a class, so I was really excited to finally attend a yoga class again (it had only been about 3 years since my last one).
To give you an idea about our experience, I am going to give you the low down on their studio spaces, changing rooms, cafe and other amenities.
A premium lifestyle, yoga, health and fitness studio, myUTOPIA was designed to fit in with our busy lifestyles with its versatility, schedule and cafe.
myUTOPIA has everything you need and more to help you get in shape, indulge in a healthy meal and find yourself through their amazing selection of classes (there are more than 10 to choose from), delicious cafe menu and friendly staff.
myUTOPIA’s two yoga studios are kitted out with all of the latest equipment needed for each class – including heating for hot yoga classes – and feature breath-taking views of Table Mountain and the city.
The studios are clean and minimalistic with wooden floors and beautiful wallpaper featuring serene scenery (picture above) that will have you feeling zen and ready for class.
The spaces are relatively large, meaning you have all the space you need to get involved in your class without the fear or bumping into your fellow neighbour and, as we attended a heated yoga class, the space was warm and inviting.
Classes run from 6am until 9pm daily and include the following:
- Power Yoga
- Power Sculpt
- Goddess Yoga
- Goddess and Warrior Yoga
- Chakra Yoga
- Wake Up and Flow
- Lunch Time Energiser
- Waterman Yoga
You can find out details about each class here.
Water, towels and mats included in each class, which is amazing as you don’t need to remember your water bottle or your yoga mat and towel.
Locker room and bathrooms
To be honest, I thought myUTOPIA’s bathrooms and locker room would be, well, like every other locker room I have walked in to. However, I couldn’t have been more wrong.
Featuring pampering products – from hair bands to ear buds and deodorant – you will never have to worry about walking about of the locker room looking a mess again. Why? Because myUTOPIA supplies you with everything you will need to get ready to go to work after your morning class or refresh for that date you have after an evening class, right at your fingertips!
Equally, those who choose the Premium Package will have access to private lockers and a laundry service!
Meet, work and eat at Nourish Cafe, myUTOPIA’s amazing health cafe serving up a variety of delicious meals that will help you eat healthy while filling your belly.
The social hub of myUTOPIA, Nourish cafe has a menu that includes everything from power packed smoothies to traditional egg breakfasts and a fancy version of avo on toast – which was what we had with a smoothing because, well, nothing beats avo on toast!
Their menu includes a lot of summer options now but, when winter comes, there will a number of warmer options to light the fire in your belly – including soup. Yum.
