Find Your Zen

4 min read
In bustling Singapore, finding moments of tranquillity and inner peace is essential for maintaining balance. Yoga offers a holistic approach to physical and mental health, allowing practitioners to cultivate mindfulness, flexibility, and inner strength.

A 2022 survey by The Yoga Alliance, a non-profit organisation, showed that respondents from around the world cited stress release as the primary reason for practising yoga. Given our hectic lifestyle, it is no surprise that yoga is the most popular type of group exercise class here: 45 per cent of group class attendees regularly attend yoga classes.

Whether you are after inner peace or aspiring to take your practice to a higher level, there is a studio to suit you.

A cosy studio tucked away in an industrial building, Active Hive offers exclusive and private yoga classes. It caters specifically to ladies and couples, and offers one-on-one sessions in pairs and small groups, as well as corporate programmes. “At Active Hive, we believe in the power of personalised care,” explains its founder, Agnes Tay. Tay, who was inspired to start a studio to intensify her own yoga practice, tailors her yoga therapy sessions to suit the needs of her students, so she might have a class focusing entirely on strengthening the knees one week and the arms and shoulders, the next. The studio also offers other classes such as functional fitness, which seniors especially will find helpful.

Ashtanga yoga aficionados will be pleased with the different variations available such as Ashtanga basics, Ashtanga Full led primary series and Ashtanga Mysore. This studio also offers unconventional classes like Laughing Yoga, since it’s been found that incorporating laughter into yoga practice helps increase endorphins and lowers stress levels.
