Unleash your inner Yogi
Here are 5 yoga schools that will get you into yoga. (It’s also an excuse to wear yoga pants, and everyone loves yoga pants.)
1. Hot yoga – Lava Yoga
Why do hot yoga when it’s already perpetually sweltering in sunny Singapore?
Try it and you’ll know – all that heavy sweating from hot yoga flushes out toxins from your body, and makes it a more intense workout to develop strength and tone.
Don’t let its intimidating name put you off – Lava Yoga is a friendly women-only yoga studio specializing in a wide range of hot yoga classes with different target areas and aims.
#04-10 I12 Katong, 112 East Coast Rd, Singapore 428802
2. Hot yoga – Ziva Yoga
Ziva Yoga offers hot yoga classes than use heating “fans” instead of panels. So if you’re afraid of feeling like you’re being cooked, have your introduction to hot yoga here.

3. Rope yoga – Samasthah
Any plans after work?
How about casually hanging on your head? Samasthah, conveniently located in the CBD, offers rope yoga, which stretches particular parts of your body using gravity and traction.
They also offer other classes such as Vinsaya and even chair yoga!

4. Yoga with your kid – Yoga Kula
“Kula” means “community” in Sanskrit. So bring your child along – kids between 7 to 12 years old get to attend the classes for free if they’re doing it with their parents!

5. Yoga with cats – Neko No Niwa
What’s more calming than practising yoga? Practising yoga with cats.
We’re not kitten you – cat café, Neko No Niwa, offers yoga lessons with these furry felines. Don’t mind the occasional lazy cat finding its cosy spot on top of you while you’re trying to hold plank position.
