Fire Station

One for the HIIT fans, Fire Station is all about lung bursting cardio intervals and strength sets, to have you skyrocketing your fitness levels and reaping the rewards of metabolic after burn.

Soul + Stretch

The best Yoga, Pilates and Mindful Movement studios in Singapore

Still Yoga

With the lights turned down low and candles burning, hip-hop beats pumping and bodies flowing, Still Yoga brings a fresh element to the Singapore scene with their unique concept which elicits only good vibes. As you move to your favourite hip-hop tunes, from old school classics, to modern mashups, tension and anxieties literally melt away and the endorphins move in. The darkened room removes the external distraction of whatever that girl in front of you is doing (whilst also challenging your proprioception and balance skills!), and you get an hour to purely focus on yourself and dial inwards to strengthen the mind-body connection. Suited for anyone who has tried a little bit of Yoga before, the class allows space for you to add in some self-practice and throw in some arm balances or inversions, if that’s your thing, or just enjoy fully absorbing the sensation of moving to the beat.
