Get your om on at new The Yoga School, which offers aerial city views, sumptuous decor and intimate classes
Everyone knows that the CBD is chock-full of gyms and fitness studios – it’s the perfect location for lunchtime pop-ins and quick workouts. But this yoga studio takes the area’s wellness game to new heights – literally. At 39 floors high, The Yoga School is a real sanctuary amongst the skies: its floor-to-ceiling windows look out onto the breathtaking backdrop of the Singapore skyline.
But it’s not just the view that’ll bring the downward dog-lovin’ droves in: The Yoga School’s space is an absolute stunner. The sunlit, serene haven is decked out in an earthy, soothing palette of white, beige and brown, and features chic wooden furnishings, and plush armchairs complemented with vintage accents. Its facilities are no runner-ups either; within the spacious bathrooms, you’ll find luxuriously soft towels by high-end local brand Ploh and personalised toiletries by Aromatherapy Associates.
But let’s talk the serious deets; classes champion breathing, movement and alignment. These come in a range of levels and styles – learn alignment through Iyengar Yoga, achieve inner peace through Meditation, get your cardio workout done through Flow or push yourself at the Hatha Radja Yoga class. Classes are kept intimate here, with sizes capped at 20. You won’t just have more space to explore poses and sequences; you’ll receive the undivided attention of your guru to correct and improve your posture.
