If you think yoga is all downward dogs and sun salutations, think again. In celebration of its tenth anniversary in Singapore, Pure Yoga has revamped its Ngee Ann City studio and added brilliant new classes to the timetable, bringing Pure Air Yoga and Wall-Rope Yoga to Orchard Road.
Whether you’re totally new to yoga or can plank in your sleep, you’ll love Pure Yoga’s all-new Ngee Ann City studio. Even more zen than before with a minimalist interior, three private yoga rooms, and five large studios big enough for 200 yogis, Pure Yoga’s team of internationally recognised teachers run over 150 classes every week here – from Dharma Yoga, Vinyasa, Hatha and Chakra Cleansing, to Yin-Yang, Universal Mandala and Jivamukti.
Plus, there are specialised rooms for Pure Air Yoga and Wall Rope Yoga, which are only the coolest new yoga classes yet. Bringing the ancient practice bang up to date, Pure Air Yoga is a series of traditional poses done while suspended in a hammock. This means it puts less pressure on joints and the spine (take that, gravity!), builds upper body and core strength and promotes deep relaxation.
Then there’s Wall Rope Yoga that uses a wall system with rope, a pelvis swing and bars to help you go deeper into poses for what is, word has it, a deeply restorative experience.
Afterwards, you can slope off to the lounge where you can charge your mobile, hop onto the free wi-fi and Instagram a smug selfie (which is practically a requirement if you stopped by the shop on your way in to snap up a sleek new yoga kit from Pure Apparel).
And so, finally, onto the details we’ve been promising you all along – a complimentary three-day trial for every Expat Living reader to try out Pure Yoga’s facilities and classes at their Ngee Ann City or Raffles Place studios until 31 May 2015. Register away, folks!
PS. If yoga isn’t your cuppa or you want to add some variety to your yoga schedule, then head to Pure Fitness Knightsbridge across the road from Ngee Ann City or Pure Fitness Asia Square and try out the latest fitness equipment and training methods. The free trial is valid for these locations, too!
