Spirituality Philosophy and Yoga Society



Welcome to the Spirituality, Philosophy, and Yoga Society (SPYS)! We are a society based on the essence of ancient Vedic principles and philosophy. The aim of SPYS is to present the teachings and lifestyles of exalted saints and sages in a dynamic and meaningful way to improve your life, all the while connecting with other like-minded souls. We are committed to providing you with Spiritual Care through Meditation and Yoga classes, Wisdom talks, Vegetarian meals, Hikes, and a wholesome Community.



The understanding that we are more than a body, but rather an eternal, blissful spiritual soul full of absolute knowledge.


Explorations of the three understandings of our Creator, namely: an impersonal effulgence (Brahmajyoti), the Lord in the heart (Paramatma), and His personal form (Bhagavan).


A channel of connecting oneself to the Divine. The main types of yoga are Jnana-, Karma-, Astanga-, Dhana- and Bhakti-yoga.


An essential part of walking the spiritual path: connecting with people who walk it alongside us. When connecting with pure spiritualists, devotion flows like electricity from their hearts into yours. Let’s embrace this love and live within divine bliss.


"Out of many thousands among men, one may endeavour for perfection, and of those who have achieved perfection, hardly one knows Me in truth."

- Krishna; Bhagavad-gita 7.3

Fully understanding the Sacred Divine Being is impossible and a task very few undertake. Yet, we are fortunate that She/He has revealed themselves in many authorised texts through many names such as Buddha, Jehovah, Rama, Allah, Krishna, Radha, Narasinga, God etc.!


Membership fee: R395 per year (deducted from your student account).
