IF YOU’RE ON A BUDGET, TRY:
Nikam Guruji Yoga Kutir
A group of certiﬁed yoga instructors holds weekly yoga classes at public spaces like shopping malls (IMM and Junction 8, for example) and community centres in Singapore.
You can sign up for a course of 12 weekly two-hour sessions, at the same venue. Registration is first-come-ﬁrst-served, before the ﬁrst session starts – so go at least 30 minutes early to secure a spot. Class sizes vary (some locations take up to 120) and you must bring your own yoga mat.
Depending on the rental cost of the venue, fees for a course could cost no more than $15 a person – at some venues, it’s even free. Check their website for course schedules.
IF YOU WANT SOMETHING PRIVATE, TRY:
Om Shiva Yoga
45 Jalan Rumia, Chip Bee Gardens, tel: 9689-5392, and #01-02B Horse City, 100 Turf Club Road, tel: 9090-2257
Book a private yoga class for up to 12 members of your family at their studios. They offer a variety of yoga styles, like Hatha and Ashtanga.
The instructor can also go to a location of your choice. The instructor will use a “journey around the world” storyline, weaving in a mix of poses that can be done with a partner or in a group – for example, a “trip to the beach” would involve transport poses, animal poses (crab, starﬁsh), and sea-related poses (rowing boat). Children should be at least three years old.
Book a one-hour session for $150 or 10 sessions for $1,000.
