Pure Yoga

Pure Yoga 1
While yoga studios tend to specialise in one or two types of yoga, Pure Yoga offers several at once - Anusara, Vinyasa, Hot Yoga and many more - as well as dance and yoga-hybrid classes such as Indo Hip Hop and Yoga Dance. Pre-natal yoga, yoga for kids and even yoga for family, rarely found in other yoga studios, can also be found at Pure Yoga.

With more than 320 classes between its two studios every week - several of the classes suited for beginners - and two convenient locations at Ngee Ann City and Raffles Place, the yoga chain is a good place to begin the battle of the bulge.

There is a wide range of classes spread out at various times of the day - including lunch hour sessions for office ladies working in the CBD area - nearby enough to pop by for an hour or two of workout. Mats, towels and exercise tools like weights and foam blocks are provided and at no additional charges so you don't have to bring your own.   

Besides, Pure Yoga is known for providing luxurious amenities in the countries it has studios in, namely Hong Kong, Taipei and most recently, New York. Their facilities include numerous bathrooms and changing rooms for their customers so no waiting time is required, a large locker room and even a lounge area for the early birds or those fresh out of a workout.

The customer service and relations officers advise students on the type of lessons they should go for as well as all things to do with yoga including beginners' yoga steps and yoga etiquette. Also, instead of the usual monkey-see-monkey-do approach, Pure Yoga instructors go around correcting students' postures, leaving the better students to lead by example at the front of the class.

With good locations, great service and luxurious amenities, it is no wonder that Pure Yoga was awarded Best New Yoga Centre by Cleo Magazine's Crush Awards twice and Best Yoga Centre in Singapore for 3 years running by Tatler's The Best of Singapore Guide 2007, 2008 and 2009.

However, Pure Yoga charges a yearly membership for all its various packages, a considerable sum to pay for at once and daunting for beginners to make such a commitment. Besides, although Pure Yoga aims to be a sanctuary in the heart of the city, it might be a little too commercial for a freshgrad's tastes.
