Located in Singapore’s bustling Chinatown area, the Yoga+ studio is anything but noisy. The minimalist studio radiates a sense of warmth and calmness, that will – no kidding – set you into zen mode almost immediately. Each session starts off with an opening sequence that focuses on breath and mindfulness, as the studio’s philosophy is that yoga should take place beyond the physical training and asanas.
The instructors at Yoga+ are friendly, even making an effort to remember students by name. During the practice, various levels of difficulty are offered for the poses – so beginners don’t have anything to worry about. There is also an emphasis on getting the correct alignment for each pose, so as to minimise injuries.
Towels are available at $1 each, and there is a single toilet and shower facility.
Packages start from $140 for five classes; Unlimited pass for off-peak classes at $180 per month. Contact the studio for the most updated price list.

If you are looking for a cost-friendly studio with a fuss-free yoga experience, Yoga Movement is the place for you. There are several studios located in Singapore, but the one at Orchard Road is conveniently located just a stone’s throw away from Dhoby Ghaut MRT station. The studio itself is clean and minimalistic, with a soothing ambience to get you into the mood for some yoga.
Yoga Movement has a comprehensive schedule of classes, offering a variety of levels to cater to your needs. If you are up for the challenge, sign up for the Power Yoga or Monster Hot classes – you will probably sweat buckets, but hey, what’s a good workout without some good ol’ sweat?
If you want something a little easier after a hectic day at work (we feel ya), opt for Zen Yoga instead. The instructors at Yoga Movement are helpful and approachable, so you can always ask them for help if need be.
