Singapore Yoga at Yoga Inc. Mar 8, 2015

Singapore Yoga at Yoga Inc.

GPS waypoint: 1°18'35.7"N 103°52'55.2"E
Location: 100 Guillemard Road ,#01-08, Singapore 399718 (Old Singapore Badminton Hall)

Yoga Inc.
Yoga Inc. is professionally run with attention to details. It has 3 studios, varying in sizes. Mats are provided - thick professional quality mats that offer grip even when wet. There is a shower facility equipped with soap and shampoo, towels are provided and lockers come with individual padlocks. They have a water fountain dispensing hot and cold water. Parking space is ample.

It's the shower facility that wins me - few yoga studios I know of offer this. It's convenient to take a shower after the session and be off to an evening event - no need to go back home for a shower.

It was in June 2014 since I had a regular yoga practice on a sustained basis. I was teaching and attending classes and immersed in the yogic community of Gen San City at the Marichi Yoga House. The months following my Southeast Asian travels saw only a minor scratch on the surface as I busy-ed myself with all the packing and unpacking. Now in Singapore, I find this yogic oasis I would call home - Yoga Inc.. I just knocked on the door and offered to teach for free - something I do if and when in a new place. Owner and yogini, Ashly was kind enough to take me in, allowing me to attend as many classes as I need for the full month of March. Ashly, my Good Samaritan.

Yoga Singapore Style
I've attended 4 classes so far, from 4 different teachers, teaching different disciplines - Hatha (Christine and KC), Core (Jing) and Hot Classic (Catherine). From the 4 classes, I see the common denominator - the teachers are focused and keen on body anatomy, cueing on marginal shifts that go a long way. The asanas are done a little different and the sequence also slightly different but always harder than a typical Philippine-style yoga. I would say their regular class is comparable to a Veer-level class in Cebu. I always welcome new and different ways of doing things. Initially, it was challenging but greatly rewarding after the class. I've learned new things from how they do it - if only I can remember all of them. It's so good to be back. I feel my strength and fitness level coming back. I am grateful to these teachers (and of course, Ashly) for having me in their class.

Ending Thoughts
This is only the start as I intend to continue my daily practice while I'm in Singapore. With my scheduled teaching class in March 21, I should be up to speed, keeping in mind, the benchmark is high.
