Pros

  • Offers over 20 classes
  • Wide range of beginner-friendly classes
  • Cozy studio
  • Warm and positive instructors

Cons

  • Booking a class is challenging
  • Studio’s front desk is not always friendly

Beginners and seasoned practitioners alike can find something to love in Jal Yoga’s extensive selection of classes.

The studio has over 20 classes, including beginner-friendly Hatha and restorative yoga and intermediate to advanced Nritya and power yoga.

Another noteworthy class is infrared heat yoga. This session is similar to hot yoga, which uses heat to help remove toxins in the body.

Practitioners prefer the infrared setup, as the yoga space isn’t as stuffy and humid as in hot yoga studios. The heat is directed at each user’s mat, not the whole room.

Moreover, Jal Yoga clients said they loved the instructors for their friendly and positive attitude. They shared that they got good vibes from each class thanks to their yoga teachers.

Practitioners also mentioned that they learned the poses easily, thanks to the instructors’ patience.  

However, booking a class in Jal Yoga can be the opposite of a positive experience, as slots fill up fast. Some clients said they often ended up on the waitlist just by being late for a few hours after the slots opened.

Another client said the booking challenges made her unlimited access package almost pointless, as she couldn’t score a session slot on the days she liked.

Also, a few commented that the studio’s customer desk was not as stellar as the classes and instructors, saying they had to deal with a snobbish staff.

2. Bliss Shala

Pros

  • Mom- and child-friendly classes
  • Small class size for more focused guidance
  • Warm and gentle instructors

Cons

  • Studio isn’t spacious 
  • Non-central location

New and soon-to-be moms can continue their yoga journey in Bliss Shala.

This home studio holds prenatal and postnatal yoga classes, intending to elevate each practitioner’s physical condition and overall well-being.

One client taking up prenatal yoga shared that sessions at Bliss Shala were calm and peaceful.

She said that instructors made it so the group could practice mindful breathing and movement undisturbed, resulting in uplifted moods and a feeling that they bonded with their babies more. 

She also appreciated that the studio provided an exclusive, tight-knit experience by limiting the class size (usually up to 9 persons). She believed that the small group helped highlight yoga’s meditative quality.

But the class size limit also means that sessions fill up fast, so expect the possibility that you’ll join the studio’s waitlist several times.

Also, as a home studio, Bliss Shala can be too small for practitioners who prefer airy and bright-lit spaces.

Furthermore, its Ang Mo Kio location might be out of the way for some people.

Pros

  • Comfy lounge and reading area
  • Sufficient showers and lockers for convenience
  • Gentle instructors

Cons

  • Waiting for your next class sessions can take weeks
  • Only a single branch in Singapore

Few yoga studios provide as much comfort and convenience as Our Yoga Place. 

Beyond its extensive class selection, the studio has a comfy lounge and a library where clients can wait for their sessions. 

Customers said staying in such a cozy space helped relieve their stress, which was an excellent preamble to the uplifting yoga sessions afterward.

Showers and lockers are also available, which customers coming from their day jobs appreciate. 

They further shared that the classes were engaging, thanks to knowledgeable, patient, and encouraging instructors. 

Many clients new to yoga said they loved the neck-and-shoulders and back care sessions, as they relieved muscle tension.

However, we are a little disappointed that Our Yoga Place has only one location in Singapore. We really wish there were more studios as comfortable as this one. 

The studio also has a few instructors (seven of them) relative to the range of classes (16 types) available. Some clients experienced waiting for weeks before their next session due to the packed schedule.

4. Nitha Priyan School of Yoga

4. Nitha Priyan School of Yoga

Classes: Joy in the Body course, yoga teacher training

Pros

  • Bright and airy studio
  • Intensive lessons for serious yoga practitioners
  • Kind and positive instructors
  • Online classes are available

Cons

  • Not for beginners
  • Classes aren’t flexible

Nitha Priyan is the right choice for practitioners looking to level up their yoga skills. 

The studio’s Joy in the Body course provides intensive lessons that help deepen your knowledge of the practice, whether you’re an enthusiast or a teacher-in-training.

Yoga practitioners who tried the course appreciate its structured setup. They said the system helped them feel they were progressing.

The clients also looked forward to each week’s lessons, as they followed a weekly theme. 

You might find the school intimidating for its comprehensive lessons, though. But interestingly, instructors made it so all their students are challenged but not hampered in their learning.

One client also mentioned that apart from its kind instructors, the studio’s design also helps learners thrive. Plenty of natural light pours into the studio, and its space gives plenty of room to breathe.

Another benefit Nitha Priyan offers is its online lessons, perfect for busy people who can’t come to the studio due to obligations.

However, Nitha Priyan’s lessons aren’t beginner-friendly. The school requires that you have at least six months of consistent practice to keep up with the course’s advanced poses.

And because the lessons are structured, learning is not as flexible as what studios offer, where you can come in for a session anytime.

5. Canvass

Pros

  • Outstanding yoga instructors
  • Serene and elegant studio space
  • Diverse class offerings
  • Excellent value for membership

Cons

  • Busy during peak days

Our experience at Canvass, the premier yoga class studio in town, left us truly impressed. The services provided by this establishment set a high standard for yoga enthusiasts everywhere. The instructors exude professionalism and expertise, making each session a delightful journey towards serenity.

Upon entering Canvass, we were greeted by a space that seamlessly blends tranquility and elegance. The studio’s design evokes a sense of calm, instantly preparing one for the practice ahead. Our mats were always spotless, and the aromas of soothing essential oils filled the air, enhancing the overall experience.

The quality of instruction at Canvass is nothing short of exceptional. The instructors’ deep knowledge of yoga and their commitment to guiding our practice were evident in every class. The personalized attention they provide ensures that we not only improved our poses but also deepened our mind-body connection.

One aspect that truly stood out was the variety of classes available. Whether you’re a seasoned yogi or a beginner, Canvass caters to all levels. Our journey with them allowed us to explore different yoga styles and discover the ones that resonated most with our preferences.

Despite being a top-tier yoga studio, Canvass manages to strike a balance between quality and cost. Our investment in the memberships felt like a wise choice.

The studio offers various membership packages, and the benefits they provide far outweigh the price.

However, they can get fully booked pretty quickly. We suggest booking a reservation ahead of time.

Pros

  • Extensive range of yoga styles
  • Offers early morning classes
  • Accessible location

Cons

  • Possible overcrowding in the studio
  • Studio’s front desk isn’t always helpful

Platinum Yoga’s over 30 classes make it a haven for yoga enthusiasts of all levels.

It has beginner-friendly Hatha and meditation sessions, Ashtanga for intermediate and advanced learners, and training courses for wanna-be yoga teachers.

More experienced clients mentioned the studio’s yoga combinations as favorites, specifically the cardio-focused HIIT Yoga and the tension-relieving YogaLates (a mix of yoga and Pilates).

Clients with day jobs also love that Platinum Yoga offers early morning and lunch-break classes, as the schedules align with their availability.

The studio’s instructors are just as impressive as its wide selection of classes and schedules.

Many of the learners we interviewed describe their yoga teachers as passionate and fun, plus they put just the right amount of challenge to keep sessions engaging.

However, a few clients pointed out that the Ang Mo Kio studio tends to be overcrowded during peak hours, as it’s one of the easiest-to-access outlets (it’s near the AMK MRT station).

This overcrowding may sometimes defeat yoga’s core purpose, which is to elevate mindfulness with one’s body.

And as the studio is often busy, you might encounter a grumpy or overwhelmed front desk.

What we also find commendable is the peaceful and serene ambiance of the studio’s interior. It’s an ideal place to unwind and connect with one’s inner self.

Although there are no mirrors in the studio which may be useful for self-correction and alignment. We think this is a minor issue and would not be a problem for everyone.

The instructors genuinely care about the well-being of their students. We think that this personal touch can greatly enhance the yoga experience, as it fosters a sense of trust and support.

The incorporation of elements like essential oils, poems, and takeaway messages adds depth to the practice and encourages emotional well-being.

YIC’s small class sizes allow for personalized attention. This is crucial in yoga, where proper alignment and form are vital.

We like that these small classes enable teachers to provide individualized guidance and adjustments, ensuring that students get the most out of their practice.
