Yoga In Singapore

I’m taking this relaxation thing very seriously! So I spent a whole night price-researching on Google and Flowerpod and it has spawned a LIST of assorted places to do Yoga in Singapore. I’ve decided to put it up here for anybody who might need this info,so they dont have to go trolling through the web.(Like I did.) Lucky for you, I derive a certain, peculiar sort of enjoyment from making lists.

mOmentOm yOga  – 10 class package of $200 (Valid for 3 months)

Kryogaworld – 10 class package of $170 (Valid to 2 months) Unlimited for $200 per month.

Whatever Yoga    – 10 class package at $180 (Valid for 1 year)

True Yoga –  $160 monthly(Unlimited visits) 4 -class a month ($88)

Yogaffinity -(Specialise in hot Yoga) $180 per month (unlimited), $230 for 12-class card(Valid for a year)

Amore Fitness and gym – $189 (12 classes, valid for 3 months) $304.50 (24 classes, valid for 3 mths), $346.50 ( unlimited 3 months)

Fitness First  – $133 per mth (Gym membership for all club access.)

Planet Fitness – $168 per month (Gym Membership) cheaper for longterm commitment.

California Fitness – $40 to $90 per month (gym membership)

Community Center Hatha yoga – $55 for 10 lessons ( conducted over 3 months)

I am crossing out Cali. Fitness because i’ve heard bad reviews about the club namely that it’s overcrowded, classes are always too packed and consultants are pushy (which i’ve encountered personally, so I really dont want to do yoga in that kind of environment.) The only pro about this club is that it’s cheaper than the rest.

Attractive Candidates

Amore

PROS: Locations are good,there’s a branch near my place and let’s face it,i think i’ll be more disciplined to go when it’s nearer.Also,there are many fantastic classes like bellydancing,jazz, latino..whee!

CONS: Pretty expensive, and classes has to be booked a week in advance. Not good with my erratic work hours.

Fitness First

Pro: Excellent facilities! skygarden swimming pools! the weather is horrible these days though, a lot of fantastic classes, plus morning yoga which will be great for me to pop in before my workday start at 10am.

Con: One of the most expensive and exclusive gyms in Singapore, but i’ve come to realise that yoga is quite the EXPENSIVE hobby in singapore. A yoga-only membership cost more than a proper gym membership with all the bells and whistles of steambath,sauna,swimming pools!)

Community yoga!

Pro: Next to the big players,it is ridiculously cheap! And incredibly near my place! Will be a good place to start to see if my infamously poor disciplinary problems crop up again. 

Con: No shower, no fancy sauna and gym facilites, and will need to lug my own yoga mat along. Not sure what the class intake will be like too.Classes are on Sat evenings as well,which is when I’m usually out..or feeling sluggish.I would prefer to do yoga in the morning to start the day,or to end a stressful workday.

Decisions,decisions,decisions. Things to keep in mind for me is 1) Price affordability ($100 a month is my budget) , 2) location, 3) Short-term commitment period, and flexible class hours.     

P/S: I hope that was helpful to anyone who’s interested in doing yoga or seeking a more active lifestyle these days.Also, Feel free to add to the list if you know a good deal or more yoga places in Singapore in the comments!

  1. I did yoga at California Fitness previously – forget it. The yoga teachers leave because Cali isn’t treating their staff right – and yoga isn’t a priority. And classes are overcrowded, not enough lockers, long queues for the showers. It sucks. My friend had a slip-disc, can’t go to gym, and they refused to allow her to transfer her membership. They just want your money. Please DO NOT go to California Fitness.

    At least gyms like Fitness First limit the number of people attending the classes, so that there’s space.

    As for Yoga at the CC – the last time I went for one of the classes at the CC, we were doing yoga in an air-con room – which is ill-advised because your muscles tend to be stiffer, and you are more prone to injuries if you try to stretch with stiff muscles.

    The Substation also offers Yoga classes. I believe it’s about $200 for 4 months, once a week. It’s about $300++ if you want to sign up for classes twice a week. You have to sign up early though, because the classes are very popular. But if you have an erratic work schedule, probably not a good choice.

    I’m doing yoga at Pure Yoga right now. I enjoy it. It’s located at Ngee Ann City, Tower A, 18th Floor. URL http://www.pure-yoga.com/en/singapore/ if you want to check it out.

    They offer Hot Yoga, Power Yoga, Yin Yoga, some Ashtanga classes – and a few Advanced classes if you’re headed that way. The showers are fine – it’s never crowded – and they limit the number of people per class.

    They also offer classes at different time slots, so it allows me a flexible schedule.

    Most of all I like the teachers. They are attentive and different teachers have different focus, so you have a more rounded practice if you try different classes. And from time to time they invite overseas teachers for workshops and stuff.

    With GST, I’m paying about SGD167.00 per month for a one-year membership. Unlimited classes. I heard True Yoga is slightly cheaper, and they offer more variety of classes. But I’m sticking to Pure Yoga as I enjoy the place. I’m currently doing yoga 5~6 times a week because I really enjoy it there.

  2. Hope everything turns out well then, with your yoga practice. And Happy New Year. A new year is always a good time to start something that benefits you.

    • Dear Priya, you can try out a class at ohmsantih yoga. I am certain you will not regret and you will walk out of the class feeling rejuvenated and regenerated like never before. all the best! =)

  21. Firstly, I want to thank you for the very useful material you
    blogged here about lower back pain. I work as a professional fitness and pilates coach| and I have met people with low
    back pain. I myself had some issues with my back previously and I
    can tell for sure that working out will definitely help if you aware
    of methodologies or work with professionals

  22. We’re a bunch of volunteers and starting a new scheme in our community. Your website provided us with helpful information to work on. You’ve performed an
    impressive job and our entire group can be thankful to you.

  23. Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up.
    The words in your post seem
    to be running off the screen in Opera.

  24. Hi, i read your blog occasionally and i own a similar one and i was just wondering if you get a lot of spam responses?
    If so how do you prevent it, any plugin or anything you can advise?
    I get so much lately it’s driving me mad so any help is very much appreciated.

  25. Singapore, on the other hand, has the advantage
    of being the economic, trade, and financial center of Southeast Asia due its strong
    rule of law and favorable business climate. To see their safe 0.5 rats eve products click here.
    This is a constant worry that often occurs in the southern United States, we have an aromatherapy arsenal to ward off flying insects, especially mosquitoes, the winner will most likely be the geranium.
    If the target pest is drywood termites, the concentration of pyrethrins is
    at its peak.
