gurucat was born after Kim Mazabow returned from her trip to lndia in 2013.

Inspired by India, Kim actively channeled all her energy into the further study and practice of yoga.

It was during a Bikram Yoga class that Sally Flanagan suggested to Kim that she open a Hot Yoga Studio in Durban. Initially startled at the idea, it slowly settled to become a dream and finally a viable option.

On her return to Umhlanga after that brief trip to Jozi in the May of 2014, the search for an appropriate studio began in earnest.

As one site after another fell through, and desperation began to hover, the perfect position finally arrived: at the Umhlanga Plaza. We got the keys on 3 September 2014; 4 months after the initial seed had been planted in Jozi.

And then it flowed.

Ably assisted with design, planning and sourcing by the marvellous Bailey Basson from Blue Capricorn Designs, the studio took on a life of its own to become a place of peace & beauty,

A true home of Hot Yoga.
