If you want to get started with yoga but do not want to commit to the membership prices at the popular yoga centers, you can consider going for yoga classes at community centres. Typically, the community centers will invite yoga teachers to conduct courses (which typically span 8 to 12 lessons), and you can expect the cost of each session to be less than $10!
Of course, having your community centers might mean that you do not get access to a nice shower or hot steam room to relax immediately after the class – unless you find a center that does provide such facilities. However, most community centers are located right in the heartlands in Singapore, and you can pick one that is near where you live, whether it is Tampines, Bugis, Ang Mo Kio, Jurong or Woodlands!
If you have to commute to your class in public transport, do remember to bring a change of clothes after your class. Be a good user of our clean transport system and don’t board the bus in your sticky and sweaty yoga attire!
